SERMON SERIES: HOLD FAST

 

Remember how easy it was to make friends as a kid? Don’t you wish making and having friends as an adult was more like that? ...Unfortunately, it’s not.

So what can we do? How should we go about cultivating healthy friendships that bless us and stand the test of time?

In this series we'll look to three example of friendship in Scripture for answers, insights, and a path forward. 

 

PART 1: WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR

Ever heard of Onesiphorus? Probably not, but he's one friend everyone should know about. ...And emulate.

PART 2: FOLLOWER OR FRIEND

Thanks, Instagram. Social media trains us to measure our relational life by how many friends or followers we have. But Jesus never measured his friendships this way--he had 12 close friends and was mostly concerned with one test of their friendship: would they bail when things got tough?
