WHAT TO KNOW JUST BEFORE YOU THINK OF DATING


Welcome to purposeful living today.
The giant in you cannot be limited by your ugly past and present circumstances. Stand firm in who God has made you to be, see what He  says about you in the word. We at Fulfill purpose Blog love and celebrate you.

"Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them"(Isaiah 34:16).


The first step in the process of moving toward marriage through the initiation of or participation in a godly relationship is to evaluate yourself spiritually. Remember, one of our guiding principles here is that we are trying to be (or prepare to be) a godly spouse even as we try to find a godly spouse. All singles who profess Christ and aspire to get married have this responsibility of walking and living in Godliness in all areas of life including relationship. Are you a Christian? If you're already sure of that basic answer, are you a growing and a matured Christian? Are you generally humble and teachable, and do you respect authority? As a practical matter, are you responsible and holy in the way you possess your own spirit, mind and body? Do you live based on kingdom principles or based on the world system?

As you move into the stage of life in which you begin to seriously consider marriage generally or a particular relationship, your first step should be to soberly reflect, before God, on your own spiritual walk and maturity in Christ. If you aspire to be a godly husband or wife someday, what have you done and what are you doing to prepare for that ministry?

"Marriage is a ministry, it is very spiritual and prophetic ".

Secondly, are you at a place in your life at which you are ready and able to marry? Practice and recreation are not good reasons to date. Dating is for the purpose of finding a marriage partner that is suitable for you in fulfilling God's purpose for your life. Dating is having marriage in view doing checks on the personality of the person you will like to be in a relationship with not wasting someone's time, playing with their life and taking advantage of their body to live in immorality. Dating gives you the opportunity to get to know people and see if they match with where you are going in life.

Thirdly, once you decide that you are ready to date, look to God's Word to decide the kind of person to date, and evaluate potential dating partners on those criteria, rather than relying primarily on the world's treatment of ideas like "attraction" and "chemistry."
For you busy singles with time for only one mildly irritating column per day, the summary is this: Pick a potential dating partner with an eye toward godly manhood and womanhood, with an eye toward who would make a good husband or wife, defined by those characteristics God esteems in His Word, not the ones Hollywood likes.

Dating should prepare you for marriage not make you enjoy marriage benefit with Him or Her this is not God's plan. Your relationship should give glory to God.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ and experience His love for you by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
