When engaging in life together, sometimes, relationships take a wrong turn. Friendships are wounded. When this happens, we easily slip into our old ways and revenge feels natural and acceptable. Jesus shows us another way, the way of relentless grace.

Martin mentioned the book Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Martin also quoted Bertrand Russell.


An essential part of our Christian faith is life together. Our God is a relational God! Our understanding of life together is rooted in the community of the Trinity, modeled by the heart & ways of Jesus, and it is to be lived out in the heart and ways of His people. This is why Paul tells the entire Thessalonian church: 5:14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
