GOD-TRACKING IS A TRIANGULAR RELATIONSHIP
1 Peter 4:8
Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins
I always say that I live in a love triangle. In fact, it was at my wedding that the minister who married my wife and me, encouraged us to seek a three-part marriage. He said, “Unless your marriage has three people in it, it will become shaky and have every probability of failure.” Of course, he was encouraging Karen and me to include Christ as the third person in our marriage. Thankfully, we took his advice.
For more than 3 decades, Karen and I have enjoyed each other greatly. We are very much still in love but, as with any normal marriage, ours has endured many storms. There was a time, many years ago, when divorce knocked at our door. I’d given up my job to study for the ministry, which left Karen as the main breadwinner. With two young children and role reversal in the marriage, together with the pressures of fulltime study and financial difficulties, I took my eyes off Jesus and flagged in my devotion to my wife. However, since we had included God as the third person of our relationship, he graciously intervened, convicting me of my wrong attitude and softening Karen’s heart. I’m thrilled to say that our marriage not only survived but has flourished, since.
Every Christian relationship should be a three-part relationship. God-tracking requires that we acknowledge God in all our ways, not least of all, in our relationships. I have discovered that this love triangle is imperative to my marriage: Karen, Dudley and God Almighty. Any triangle comprises 3 sides. However, the most important side of any triangle is its base. Without the base in place, the 2 sides would float about and eventually collapse.
Jesus said, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” The Word of God and the intimate fellowship of the Holy Spirit need to form the base of any love triangle.
God-tracking is a triangular relationship.
Dear Lord, I commit my fight to you. Help me to have grace and strength to stand against my enemy
“Dear God, forgive me for not including you in all my relationships. I choose now to acknowledge you in every relationship I have with friends, colleagues and family. I confess your lordship over my most intimate relationship, and confess you as the base of my love triangle. Help us to always seek first your kingdom principles and your righteousness in ever choice we make. Help us to always seek your Word and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit in our relationship and so build our love-house on the Rock. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
