Relationship Works - GOD Works (Genesis 2:18-24, Genesis 1:26-28, John 17:18-23, Matthew 18:20)

Phil Helfer, September 17, 2017
Part of the Relationship Works series, preached at a Sunday Morning Message service


A new series of messages for the fall called Relationship Works.

To kick this series off, we established that GOD exists as an eternal relationship-- Father, Son & Holy Spirit! When God made humans, He made them in His Image -- male and female to reflect the relationship that He has within Himself. It wasn't good to make one.... Adam felt it that being alone was NOT GOOD. He was made for relationship with Eve and with GOD.

So Relationships are from God, by God, to God and God exists in an eternal relationship! This just sets the table for where we are going in the upcoming fall series around relationships... we hope to see you and learn together as a whole church family around this vital topic -- Relationship Works!

Genesis 2:18-24

18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said,

“This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.”

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (ESV)

Genesis 1:26-28

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (ESV)

John 17:18-23

18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.

20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. (ESV)

Matthew 18:20

20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (ESV)
