1. God wants us to love him with our whole being (which involves a relationship with him).
2. If we don’t love others, then we do not love God.
3. What else, according to Scripture, depends upon relationship? edification, discipleship, evangelism, giving, discipline, teaching, Spirit-led life.
Are there other reasons that we should focus on relationship? Are there reasons that we should not focus on relationship?
