From your relationship with family to your relationship with friends and finally, your relationship with that person that is a great shareholder of your heart, you can either be made or marred by the kind of relationship you keep.

Proverbs 13 vs. 20

 Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.

Our human relationship means a whole lot to God and determines or progress spiritually. Once a man is born again, it is very necessary for him to have a review of his relationship and sieve out the ones that dont make sense. 

Proverbs 2 vs. 20

 So you will walk in the way of good men And keep to the paths of the righteous.

The wrong kind of relationship can slow down your spiritual relationship with God. God doesnt dwell in polluted areas. So if you are with polluted people, the devil would be lurking around. Sooner, your mind will be polluted. I used to have two friends who were so - called Christians but were skeptical about their belief in God. One was a worker in her fellowship and even recently got promoted but she would tell me

   'Gracey, all these workmanship I am doing in church is just for doing sake. I am not even sure if heaven exists. So, I have to play safe. In case heaven exists, I will kuku go there since I am working for God and in case it doesnt exist, I still dont have anything to loose'

Can you imagine that? And she teaches in the fellowship every sunday. People walk up to her for counsel and perhaps, prayers. The other one's idea about God is even worse. She sees God as wicked. Now, we as christians have to be really careful of the kind of company we keep. It took God's mercy to break me from those ladies. I was slowly seeing sense in their rubbish but God held me strong. Someone else would have been influenced.

The fact that the person attends church or is a worker in church doesnt mean you should hangout with the person. The church is a hospital and accomodates everyone. I was at the Redemption Camp some months ago and Pastor Adeboye said there was a witch or maybe two witches in the auditorium. He gave them an ultimatum - its either they repent that day or they die.

It isnt everyone you talk to in Church. This salvation is so very personal. This life is very personal. Accountability before God is very personal. Even if the only friend you will have is your spouse and God, thats so better. Dont let anyone send you to hell. Your human relationship could either make or mar your relationship with God. Its best we know this.

Family wise, if we have any family member that is an unbeliever or claims to be a christian but their ways isnt straight; you seriously need to be pray for them and watch the way you move around them. The devil can use anyone. Keep talking to them about Christ. Dont do what they do because they will see no difference between themselves and you. Dont give them a reason to say

    'And she calls herself a christian or and he calls himself a christian'

You are the Bible they are reading. Most importantly, treat them with love but be careful of the way you hang around them.

Friends wise, you relationship with friends are not as important as family relationship. Family is blood. Friends might just be for companionship. So you can break some friendship if they arent moving you forward. If for the sake of companionship or closeness you and your friends go to hell, who will you blame exactly? Firstly, stop attending all those irrelevant functions together. Stop joining them to laugh at those silly jokes.

Matthew 12 vs. 36 - 37

  6But I tell you that men will give an account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. 37For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”…

Sieze arguing with them. Instead, invite them to pray with you and attend Church services with you. They will laugh and scorn you but by themselves, they will leave you alone.

Spouse wise, this is the deepest bonding. You cant move far from your spouse. Constantly pray for them. Love them notwithstanding. Obey them. Be happy. Dont murmur or nag because they are unsaved. Your endless love for them and your prayers for them no matter how long will one day open their eyes.

Even those spirikoko sisters and brothers in Church, watch out for them. Many of them might simply be wolves in sheep clothing. This is why every christian need to be able to discen. Pray to God before you commit in any relationship and God will help us all in Jesus Name.
