The bible has alot to say about relationships. And today, it is our intention that the bible verses about relationships that we provide here will be a source of inspiration, comfort, and edification to you as the Lord shows you the types of relationships that you should be involved in.

The Lord Jesus is Our Example

You know the Lord Jesus Christ had 12 disciples, he had 12 unique relationships. And these relationships were all entered into by the leading of the Holy Spirit, even the one who would betray Him.

In your relationships, make it an essential part that you follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Not everything that glitters is gold and not everybody that seems to be friendly is your friend. And so the Holy Spirit is your safety net. The Holy Spirit, as He brings inspiration to God's word, is your safety net. You may discover that what the Lord may reveal to you about a person that wants to be friends with you, or have a romantic relationship with you may surprise you!

You see, when it comes even to a marriage, you need to be led by the Holy Spirit who will bring to you the Word of God.

May you Build Relationships With People That See You The Way God Sees You

God's love was poured out upon us for even while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

It is my prayer that you find people, who even when you don't look the part, will extend a hand of friendship and goodness to you! I'm talking about even when you don't fit the status quo and what people would think would be somebody to be friends with.

May they find the goodness that God put in you, the Holy Spirit. May He continue to be all that's required for friendship and may you likewise find people who are led by the Holy Spirit who walk by the power of the Holy Ghost, because it is in this communion that you will often find fantastic, fulfilling relationships! When you drink from the same Source, your common Source will unite you. There's so much here in what I just said, but let's go on.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord…

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement…

God wants you to have good relationships

Good relationships. Whether they are romantic relationships or platonic relationships, they all have to be wrought, or formed by the power of God. Now there are some times that you may want a particular relationship and sometimes that's not what God wants for you. Sometimes, going down that route can lead you into a lot of unnecessary pain and heartache and God doesn't want that for you.

There have been several times in my life when I thought that somebody would be good for me in terms of a friendship, but they weren't the person that God wanted for me in my life. And I had to come to terms with the fact that God knows what is best for me.

God Wants Your Romantic Relationships To Be Good

As a man, choosing your wife is one of these relationships that you need the Holy Ghost to be a part of. As a woman, finding a husband is one of those relationships that requires the Holy Ghost. 

King David was one who had relationship issues. His family relationship on a whole, as a young man, was not that good. 

But his relationship with Jonathan, Saul's son, was a unique and powerful relationship. Scripture says that they loved one another as they loved themselves. And the Scriptures talk about loving one another as ourselves.

Godly Relationships Are Formed By The "Golden Rule"

Here's a lesson: In Godly relationships, the other person considers how their actions will make you feel by first bearing witness to how those same actions would make them feel. Not only that, these relationships are set up on the foundation of Christ. 

Godly relationships are led by the golden rule; as many people put it: Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you know.

It's important that as we look at human relationships, we consider that there is a godly relationship that is above all other godly relationships, and this is the relationship that you have with the Lord Jesus Christ and this is wrought by the Holy Ghost, again. Even a relationship with the Lord is brought about by the leading, guiding, and drawing of the Holy Spirit.

Let the Holy Spirit Form Your Every Relationship

Let all of your relationships be done this way. Because, if the most important relationship that you can ever have in this life requires the Holy Ghost, then every other relationship that you involve yourself in life should involve this Awesome Matchmaker! God wants the best for your life, and the Holy Ghost is the one to give you this.

Marriage Relationships: Godly Husband and Excellent Wife

If you're looking for a wife as a man you are to find in the scriptures in Proverbs 31, what the qualities are of a virtuous wife and a virtuous woman. If you are looking for a husband, ladies, look no further than the qualities that are found in Christ Jesus Himself, for the Scriptures indeed declare that men ought to love their wives as Christ loved the Church.

God wants us to have good relationships because relationships are the wellsprings of life. And so it is our prayer today that you find Godly relationships that will be advantageous to the glory of God in your life. Our scriptures come from both the Old Testament and the New Testament. And again, it's our prayer that you find the relationships that the Lord wants you to be in. God bless you!
