Did you know that God uses other people to build your faith?

In fact, if you feel like you have stalled out spiritually. This could be due to the fact that you don’t have the right people in your life.

Here’s the truth: we need each other to grow spiritually.

This isn’t a comfortable faith principle! We’d rather keep people at a distance rather than bring them in close. When we open our lives up to others, we risk getting hurt. What keeps you 

Before visiting the church in Rome, Paul said the following:

“I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong—that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.” (Romans 1:11-12)

He didn’t even know these people, yet he was expecting God to use their relationship for mutual growth. 

One way that others strengthen us is to tell us the truth we need to hear. They help cover our blind spots, and when we have the humility to listen, we avoid trouble. When was the last time someone said something that made you stop and think?

Consider: Is it time for you to seek new relationships? This isn’t easy! A Christian without a church family is a spiritual orphan. Maybe you need to deepen an existing friendship. This isn’t easy either, changing the way we normally relate to someone is challenging.
