Creflo Dollar: Designed for Relationships

Designed for Relationships - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Did you know that God created mankind for the purpose of establishing relationships? Genesis 2:18 says that in the beginning, He created Adam, and decided it was not good for him to be alone. He created Eve, and said she was help that was “meet” for him, meaning she was someone suitable (or proper) for him. Why did Adam need help? He needed help to develop out of self-centeredness. With Eve in his life, God knew Adam would always be challenged to consider someone other than himself.

God established the institution of marriage between Adam and Eve for the purpose of eliminating their “aloneness.” We need companionship for reasons far greater than just satisfying a lonely heart. With Eve by his side, Adam was forced to fight his selfishness. By loving someone else, he would become a better man.

This does not apply only to married people. This applies to every relationship we will ever have as human beings, including our relationship with the Father Himself. Yes, He wants to have a relationship with us! We were designed for relationships. Relationships far exceed having fun times together with friends. God views relationships as covenants.

We all need to learn to establish covenant relationships. We need someone in our lives to help us develop. For example, single people need to establish covenant relationships to help them grow out of selfishness. All relationships are designed to help us mature in unconditional love—the God-kind of love.

God created us in His image; however, we can never totally be like Him with a self-centered mindset. God is love. Therefore His foundation for everything is love, not selfishness. Although it is good for us to love ourselves, it is not good to disregard everyone else in the process! Healthy self-love serves as the foundation for the love we distribute to others. And we cannot truly love ourselves and others without first receiving that God loves us with a relentless, unfailing, everlasting love.

The Unity of God’s Perfect Design

The Unity of God’s Perfect Design - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

If asked to describe your nationality, how would you respond? Would you answer, “I’m Black, I’m German, or I’m Hispanic?” Or would you say I’m an American? When asked about their culture most Americans respond by describing how America is a melting pot of races, ethnicities, and cultures freely pursuing the American dream; whatever that is! While most people amplify cultural differences, very rarely do they discuss the common bond that binds us all regardless of our color, culture, or belief system—we’re all Americans.

When we separate cultures in an attempt to define, or set ourselves apart from other races, in essence, we’re subtly operating in a spirit of division; the same spirit which has wreaked havoc on this nation, causing separation, rather than merging the cultures.

In Germany, a person from that country is considered to be German. Likewise, a person from Italy is considered to be Italian. However, when an Italian or German person becomes an American citizen, their cultural distinctions no longer exist—they’re both Americans. The same is true for a born—again Believer. Once you’re born again, you’re part of the household of faith; a brother or sister with anyone who is of the same household. You’re no longer White, Black, Italian, Baptist, Methodist, Episcopalian, or whatever ethnic or religious distinction you formerly embraced. You’re a Christian!

When we discover who we are in Christ, and gain a solid understanding of our covenant with God, we’ll begin to thrive in the unity of God’s perfect design. Otherwise, we will continue to magnify our differences, and a spirit of division will remain in our society, corroding its moral fiber.

Although this topic may appear very insignificant, in my opinion, it emphasizes the importance of our regarding the Scriptures in everything we do. Our forefathers founded this country according to the principles of the Word of God; however, the foundation of our nation has been breached, which is why we’re continuously trying to figure out why division and racism exists.

Although we magnify our differences, the Word says Believers are part of one body. So if there’s no cultural distinction in God’s eyes, why does it exist in ours?
