As I study the bible, one of the things that's crystal clear is that God wants us to have healthy relationships. I'm very concerned when I encounter Christians who have a “me and my bible doctrine.” In other words, they think that the only thing they need to live the victorious Christian life is their bible, and the notes that they've taken in church. In my judgment this is very dangerous and is counter to how God designed us to live the Christian life. God uses other believers in a variety of ways to help us mature. One of my favorite stories is found in Luke 1:41. When Elizabeth hears Mary's greeting, the babe in Elizabeth's womb leaps! Elizabeth was literally pregnant with a baby, but figuratively, you may be pregnant with a dream or an idea. Here's the million dollar question: who makes what your pregnant with leap? That's who you want to surround yourself with, people who encourage you so that you can become all that God called you to be!
