Dating and being a 21st century christian
So here I am, worried… yes worried about people close to me, well about their love lives. None of my business? I don’t think so, it is my business to try and make sure my loved ones and neighbours (whom if I love are also my loved ones :D) don’t get off the straight and narrow. Truth be told there ain’t much I can actually do to get them to change their minds but I can try ha?
So sent an email along this gist… just hoping they actually read all this… or any of it… so I told them I was praying that the Lord leads and guides them… and to get a copy of Playing God by Michelle McKinney Hammond… what can I say, it’s real………
Don’t fall into missionary dating, it just ain’t the way to go. wait on the Lord 😀
Why now? Why bring this up now whenI’vee never really said anything before well I have but not along these lines and ’tis not like I have the best track record… lets says have been convicted by the HS to do so… and I’ve been reading a lot on dating and courtship and lets just say I wish the dating morals of people would go back a couple of centuries, well not all of them but most…
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers, for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”2.Cor:6.14-18.
“Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain” (Psalm 127:1)
The thing you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what God wants. Then all these other things you need will be given to you (Matthew 6:33).
It may seem sometimes that you are alone. You are not! Keep your Faith in Christ and the Power of the Cross. Even though as a human we want to try to fix things by self. You can’t. 1 Peter 4;12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you as though some strange thing happened unto you. But rejoice inasmuch as you are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that when His Glory shall be revealed you may be glad also with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the Name of Christ, happy are you for the Spirit of Glory and of God rests upon you.
So what’s wrong with missionary dating? Read this, do read it please, else I’ll come bonk you on the head with a wok!
