Relationships begin in different ways. They can form by planning and by happenstance. For the believer in Jesus Christ, every contact and bond is known before a connection even begins. When Jesus is in the center of relationships, all is exceedingly well.

When you and I have the privilege of forming new relationships with special people, the active work of the Holy Spirit is present. When relationships morph, He remains active – whether or not we see Him. Intimacy with God in prayer and the reading of His Word activate power so that whatever becomes of relationships they remain becoming to Christ.

Lord Jesus, Thank You for every encounter Your brand with Your Spirit and keep in Your heart for all time and place. In Thee, Lord Christ, Amen.
