RELATING TO OTHER PEOPLE
 
How does scripture say we are to relate to other people? Romans 12:10 (KJV) says, “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love, in honor preferring one another.” Brotherly love (Greek: phile’o) is the general comaraderie that we share with all other people, like as the kinship of all humanity. We are to see them through eyes of acceptance for who they are and as they are.   This is the “affection” meant here. It does not matter whether you know them or whether they are strangers, nor whether or not you like them, nor whether they are friend or foe.
 
“…in honor preferring one another” means that you should put other people’s “best interest” in high esteem, even ahead of your personal interest. Putting your own interest ahead of others is not only selfish and egotistical, but it also interferes with your interpersonal relationships.
 
It does not mean you do everything for them or that you give them whatever they want or desire of you. The key is “best interest,” that which is good and best for them. Do not let anyone “use” you or control you; that is neither their best interest nor yours. Do not become an enabler. However, be kind and considerate.
 
What about those who are hostile towards you, a/k/a, your “enemies?” Jesus himself said in Matthew 5:44 KJV, “love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you.” That sounds like a hard task; it is contrary to our natural human behavior. It is only possible because of God’s own love within us (Greek: agape). How else could we “win them over” except that way?
 
In fact, Proverbs 25:21-22 (NKJV) says, “If your (personal) enemy is hungry, give him bread (food) to eat. And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. For (in so doing) you will heap coals of fire on his head.” It is a powerful thing when someone does or says something against you and you respond in gentleness and with kindness. Sometimes it can turn someone who is hostile (enemy) toward you into a friend, or at least change their attitude toward you for the better.
 
Jesus desires that we win people, not alienate them.

WHO IS ANSWERING YOUR DOOR?
 
Years ago, I heard a very catchy phrase that has stuck with me. I quote it often. It goes like this: “Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.” You see my friends, faith eradicates fear.
 
II Timothy 1:7 tells us: “For God hath not give us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Fear does not come from God. It comes from Satan. We are all put in positions to “fear” but what we do with it will determine our victory or defeat.
 
In Isaiah 26:3 it says: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” When we don’t trust God, we put our trust in fear. That is a hard pill to swallow, but if you are walking in fear it means that you don’t trust God and his promises. Keeping our mind stayed means to have it “fixed” where it is unmovable. It trusts God and his promises in spite of circumstances. It believes God’s word over anything that Satan can throw at us. 
 
Oh yes, fear will knock on the door, but faith must answer. How do we get faith? Faith comes by hearing the word or promises of God. We also build up our faith by praying in the Holy Ghost (Jude v 20).
 
There is no substitute for faith. You can’t buy it at Walmart or Amazon. It is developed like a muscle, by exercising it. It must be a part of your daily life if you want to be free of fear.
 
The next time fear knocks at your door, let faith answer. No one will be there.

EXHORTATION

In order to enjoy your life and have any significant accomplishments in your PRESENT; And to properly prepare yourself for what’s ahead for your FUTURE...You must FIRST accept and live ABOVE your PAST. It really makes no difference how good or how bad things used to be...It’s now time for you to get PAST your PAST and MOVE on into what’s AHEAD for your FUTURE. Just think about this for a moment...God put eyes in your FACE. Yes, He put them in the FRONT of your HEAD; Not in the BACK of your head or anywhere on your BACK. Why?? Because He knew that in order for you to get anywhere at all in life; You would FIRST have to FACE things...HEAD on. Yes, you’d have to LOOK at them, DEAL with them and THEN...MOVE ON...And not keep LOOKING BACK at what once was. You see your FUTURE is in FRONT of you; So TURN your HAT AROUND and MOVE on DOWN the ROAD of LIFE. You can rest assured that you really do have the God given ability (with His help) to create a great FUTURE that’s AWAITING you just AHEAD on the road of life. Now have yourself a blessed, happy and productive day...And keep looking UP and FORWARDS; For remember your FUTURE is AHEAD of you...It is not ever BEHIND you...That’s called your PAST. So don’t you think that today would be a great day to...BURY your PAST and MOVE on FORWARDS into your FUTURE. It’s THERE that you’ll SLOWLY but SURELY discover all that you were born and blessed to do in your FUTURE that your Father God has just for you.
