Gods will for christian dating
Human relationships do matter, but none is nearly as important as our eternal relationship with Jesus.
by Shelley Poston It can be difficult to be clear-headed in a dating relationship.
We should receive our situation in life, whether it is singleness or marriage, as a gift of God’s grace to us. So Eve was created to meet Adam’s need for companionship, and the two came together in the lifelong, sexual relationship of marriage.
We aren’t designed to be on our own, and if we aren’t to be married, whether in the short or long term, we should seek to satisfy our need for intimacy in other relationships. Human marriage reflects the marriage God wants to enjoy with his people forever.
It’s often just assumed that adults will have a partner and that there’s something rather odd about them if they don’t for any period of time.
