Lead Pastor, Jeremy Flanagan, explores the biblical perspective of a divisive subject in our society.
Are you more likely to follow God’s plan or try something that comes from human wisdom? It’s easy to be swayed by the eloquence of man over the simplicity of God, but His way works. Evaluate how you are making life choices.
Most activism has to do with deconstructing without a plan to fill the void. What can you do constructively to help others succeed?
Lead Pastor, Jeremy Flanagan, will explore how a biblical perspective should impact how we view the subject of truth.

Bottom Line: If the Lord is truly going to be God over all we know, then we need to work hard at following His design for relationships in the family. It is a struggle to keep true cooperation and dedication in a marriage relationship. It is equally important to maintain a Godly model of a vertical relationship between parents & children.
- If married, work to understand what negative direction you and your partner tend to default to when cooperation isn’t found. Push to keep the relationship as mutually submissive, not authoritarian or emotionally distant.
- As parents, are you maintaining a healthy vertical relationship with your children? Be honest about how mistakes now can damage their character development & view of authority (including God).
Colossians 3: 18-21, Ephesians 5: 21-25, 28, Romans 12: 9-10, Hebrews 13: 1, Proverbs 17:17, Ephesians 6: 1-4, Proverbs 23: 12-14, Proverbs 1: 8-9
Pastor Jeremy Flanagan continues the Real Relationships series by examining how we can use the attitude of Jesus to develop healthy, growing relationships with other people. He will challenge us to reevaluate the connection between our view of God and how we treat others.
Understand your views on relationships. First, in what ways do you incorrectly view God? Do you bring Him down to our fallible level or elevate yourself above where you should be?
With others, do you struggle treating them as equal? Do you tend to push others down or do you lower yourself in an unhealthy way? We need humility, not aggressive pride or emotional retreat.
Mitchell Neldon, Pathway's Executive Pastor, sat down with his wife, Carrie Neldon, for this Interview Episode. Carrie shares her story about how she first got involved at Pathway and what was going on in her life at the time. This part of her story shows the importance of obedience and faithfulness in times of disappointment and tragedy.
Through the month of April, Lead Pastor Jeremy Flanagan will be speaking on Real Relationships. What makes them strong. What makes them lasting. What makes them fulfilling. We will talk about relationships within our families, within our church, and our fellowship with other believers. We will dig into our personal view of what we want out of relationships. But first we need to talk about our relationship with God.
God is the God of relationships. He has built us for relationships. He, Himself, personifies the importance of relationships. But before we can truly understand the way to best build strong ties to others, we need to focus on creating a strong relationship with God.
Determine what things are causing the most fear & anxiety in your life right now. Decide what you can do to address them, then pray for God to handle the rest. Let God worry about what He alone has the power to address.
Read Philippians 2:1-11 for direction on how to treat others and a reminder of Jesus’ sacrifice.

Scripture References :: Matthew 13:44-46, Philippians 3:7-9, Ephesians 2:4-10
Next Steps: 1) Read Romans 12 to get a better picture of what it looks like to sacrifice the things of this life to God. 2) Write down all the things that you can think of that stand in the way of God being King of your life. (busyness, comfort, fear, laziness, etc.) Send that list to a trusted Christian mentor or friend. Invite them to help you give up those things.
