What are the 3 Indispensable Relationships Every Believer MUST have?

Do you know what the 3 Indispensable Relationships every Disciple should have?
By fostering them, you will experience exponential growth.

Howard Hendricks, beloved professor at Dallas Theological Seminary who went to be with the Lord in 2013, taught that every believer should foster three relationships in their life:

  • A Paul—an older and wiser believer from whom you can learn
  •  A Barnabas—a friend who teaches, encourages, and holds you accountable
  • A Timothy—a young believer [believers] in whom you are investing

These three relationships allow others to speak into your life, and, at the same time, allow you to speak into others’ lives. Notice the wisdom of Solomon: “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17).
