The key to building a successful nation, family, business, ministry, marriage etc is having a healthy relationship with others. The major cause of moral and social decadence today was because there was no parent – children, father – son, mother – daughter healthy relationship and proper mentoring.
As we come gradually come to the end of days, conspiracy and betrayal will be on the increasing measure, so many loved ones will deny their commitments to each other, there will be stories of woes and awful experiences all around because little has been taught on building and maintaining a healthy relationship.
The greatest wound you will ever have throughout your entire life may be caused by someone so close to you. Jesus got his biggest wounds in the house of his friends, not enemies. Even though the wound has been healed by immortality, but the marks remain on his hands and feet.
As you journey through life, you will definitely sustain a wound by someone close to you; be it a spouse, a business partner, neighbour, siblings etc. If you have not sustained any wound by someone close to you, you are yet to know what life is all about.
But Jesus has taught us how to handle all these pressures, pains and misfortunes people might have caused or perhaps they will still cause us and that we may learn how to turn enemies into friends. Peter denied Jesus three times. Jesus could have actually retaliated by punishing him or placed a curse on him when he rose from the dead, but He surprised other disciples by handling them over to him. John 21: 15 – 17 … “Feed my sheep”.
One surest way to have a successful relationship is the ability to turn enemies into friends. There are some enemies that you’re meant to path your ways for good with them, they will always take you for granted and watch your downfall, they claimed to repent, but their intentions are evil still.
I believe so much that if Judas had waited till Jesus was raised back alive on the third day, Jesus would still have forgiven him like he did for Peter, but he was too much in a haste to hang himself on gallows that the scriptures might be fulfilled.
Love everyone, don’t have any soul on your list marked for absolute hatred. Pray for your enemies. Pray for those who brought your greatest wounds, God will turn them over for good to be a blessing and a testimony for you in due time and restore your wasted efforts in the Lord’s Recovery. Paul supervised the stoning of Stephen to death, but He was used to bring the greatest revelation to the body of Christ. See the world through your eyes, turn your pains into pleasure and you will bless the world.
