There is a spiritual relationship and a natural relationship:
Before we end this study let look at relationship. God is all about relationship, amen. There is a spiritual relationship and a natural relationship. We as Christian have a spiritual relationship with God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We also have a relationship with our family, friends, etc. But first, let us talk about our relationship with God, and the family and friend relationship. Let us consider the scriptures in 1 Corinthians 11:3, “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” There are those who teach that this is a hierarchy of relationships, viz., 1) God, 2) Christ, 3) Men, 4) Women. But you will notice that this is not accurate. It is not “men” and “women.” It is “the man” and “the woman,” singular for each gender. A man to a woman. It is the married relationship, and it is a ranking of a man and a woman. They are separate and individual, but they are also one. God and Christ are separate, but they are also one. In the days of His flesh and until the end of all things, Christ is subject to God (1 Corinthians 15:28). In the marriage relationship, a woman is subject to a man until the marriage union is dissolved by death (1 Corinthians 7:39).
In the marriage relationship, the woman is required to be in subjection to the man. In the relationship of all the saved to each other, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
We are a spiritual family. We are sisters and brothers in God through the Lord Jesus Christ. We were born into a natural family, then we were born-again into a spiritual family through Jesus’ death, burier, and resurrection by faith. (John 6:26-29, 32-35, 48-51, 58; Mark 14:22; Revelation 19:9). Christians are the spiritual Israel by faith, and the Jews are the natural Israel that God recognize, and call to holiness unto Him.
Jesus’ relationship with His mother and His beloved disciple was so important to Him, He made sure they were provided for, even while He was dying for them. Relationship is important to God, especially ours with Him.
