15 Great Relationship Questions

Matthew preached a great sermon yesterday on the importance of living in biblical community. It brought to mind this resource from fellow Acts29 pastor Brian Howard of Copperhill Church. These questions are challenging, but helpful as you seek to evaluate the quality of your relationships.

1. Who in your life knows the sin that you struggle with? (James 5:16)

2. Who do you meet with regularly to pray? (Matt 18:19-20)

3. With whom are you living a life of love in front of unbelievers? (John 13, 17)

4. Who has corrected you in some area of your life recently? (1 Tim 5:20)

5. Who have you corrected recently? (1 Tim 5:20)

6. Who are you currently discipling and teaching with Scripture? (2 Tim 2:2)

7. Who do you meet with regularly to discuss what you are learning in the Bible?

8. Who will be by your hospital bed to pray for you and encourage you?

9. Who will fight to keep you from straying from the faith?

10. Who do you serve by using the gifts that God has given you?

11. Who are you partnering with to reach non-Christians that you know?

12. Who do you meet with when your marriage is in trouble?

13. Who is regularly praying for your marriage?

14. Who are you encouraging daily? (Heb 3:12-13)

15. Who have you recently counseled with the word of God?

#11 is the toughest for me right now. Which of these are most challenging for you? Which of these are the most encouraging?

    The one that is most convicting to me is, “Who do you meet with regularly to pray?” I do a lot of talking with people about struggles and we usually pray and I pray a lot individually but meeting together with the intent to just pray together has not crossed my mind… something for me to think about. Thanks for the great thought provoking list !

    I find that when I have intentional prayer time with people like you’re describing I end up actually praying more on my own as well. It’s like the time with somebody else provides good training wheels for me.

    The ways out are usually easy, however that doesn’t imply it will be simple for you. If you really feel that only your ex can complete you, you need to have an organized strategy to get your ex back and you should start to have one.
