Roles of a Lifetime

Relationships are complex, but they are the connections that allow us to minister to others. By understanding our multiple roles in someone’s life, we can help the hurting, lift the discouraged, and be the blessing God intends.

Commentary from the Turning Points devotional by David Jeremiah, September 13, 2021.

Struggles of Will

genesis 3;16b

Because of sin and the curse, the man and the woman will face struggles in their own relationship.  Sin has turned the harmonious system of God-ordained roles into distasteful struggles of self-will.  Lifelong companions, husbands and wives, will need God’s help in getting along as a result.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Genesis 3:16.

An Entirely New Existence


Believers will experience an entirely new existence in which they will have perfect spiritual relationships with everyone else.  Believers will be like angels in that they will be spiritual, eternal beings who will not die.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Mark 12:25.
