How to maintain healthy relationships
August 10, 2012
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:7
One of my favorite instruments is the piano. I just love being in church when someone is performing a piano solo. But an interesting thing about pianos—or any instrument for that matter—is that you don’t tune them to each other. The reason for this is that if one is just a bit off, the other you tune it to will be off as well, possibly by more.
What happens when you tune a piano is, a master tuner comes in with a tuning fork and tunes the piano directly to the fork. That way, there is a standard of performance—the tuning fork—to which every piano adheres. And that fork is specifically designed to resonate at a very specific frequency—so an “A”note is the same wherever you are!
It’s very much the same with Christian fellowship. We don’t stay in fellowship just by interacting with each other. No, we have fellowship with the Lord and we tune ourselves to Him. And when we’re in tune with Him, we enjoy harmony in Christian fellowship, praising God together as one!
Perhaps today, you have relationships that are out of tune. One thing to check first is whether or not you’re in tune with the Master Tuner Himself—God. When you are, you’ll discover harmony among the body of Christ that transcends all understanding!
TUNE YOURSELF TO GOD, AND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST WILL BE IN TUNE AS WELL!
