Have you ever considered how your friendships can be a witness to the gospel?
“…that they may be completely one, so that the world will know that you sent me…” (John 17:23)
A unified body of Christ is a testimony of the love God has for the world. Jesus’ prayer was for the body of Christ to be a witness of God’s love by our love for one another.
The way we conduct ourselves in friendship is a significant witness to God’s love. Loving our friends, bearing one another’s burdens, working through conflict, and sharing life together all display God’s love, faithfulness, and loyalty to His people. Our friendships are a witness to the sacrificial love of Christ toward His people.
In the same way, if our friendships are marked by conflict, dissension, arguments, gossip, and distrust, we are a negative witness for the gospel. When our friendships look like the world’s relationships, we damage our witness for Christ.
Friendship is an in-depth study on what it means to live in biblical friendship. This study will explore our need for community, the great blessing of friendship, how to recognize and avoid toxic friendships, and how our ultimate provision of friendship can be found in the One who laid down His life for His friends.
