We come across many persons in life. We often have so many persons in our lives too. How do we know the perfect person for a committed relationship?
Every relationship should consciously be instituted with the mindset of being committed to each other. We have tried to define what commitment in a Christian relationship connotes in my previous article.
Christian Singles often times could be full of the fear for the right time, the basis for defining readiness, and when to settle in a committed relationship. This fears are mostly due to the following reasoning:
Many Christian brothers miss their opportunities with a lady they love due to inappropriately redefining and progressively specifying their relationship statues. In most cases, many brothers are always patiently prayerfully waiting for the perfect times and the preparedness to settle down as a prerequisite for making this move.
However, Ladies do not only watch and wait for their guys defining words like to ask them out. But they also often have other guys who unfortunately are more desperate and pressing about what they want.
It is an overly assumptions to think that a lady is with you because she is playing along.
While sexual purity is a deliberate choice to refrain from sexual activities outside marriage, sexual impurity is both a conscious and unconscious acts in sexual activities by an individual who is easily overtaken by sexual urge.
One of the greatest vessels for nurturing a man into maturity is the parts played by other persons. God places people in our path and us in theirs so that we might be a blessing to each other. Thus, the purpose in building friendship should be to encourage, lift up, correct and help build the Grace in each other. And to do all we can to assist them in achieving their dreams.
Relationship is very potent for a successful journey of life. As such, the principle of Christian relationship is as well valuable as other common principle like financial principle, academic principle, etc. These we see in the following bible verses that itemize the importance of Christian Relationships;
The bible is replete with who our friends should and what Friendship should mean to us believers. Friendship is initiated whenever two or more individuals acknowledges a sense of (mutual) relevance and developed a sincere respect for (each of) the other. So we have friends even among siblings.
Everyone is in a relationship. We understand this well when we realize the various platforms on which relationship exists and classify them as type of relationship.
Our understanding is also enlightened as we consider the various ways in which these types of relationship played out in the bible.
As such, this article is aimed at outlining the various bible chapters describing each of the various relationships cadre as listed in my previous article.
A retrospection through the fantasy of the pre-adult phase of my life, when I’d often find myself with friends of likeminded rehearsing on who we would love to marry future. Sometimes we even mentioned names; funny memories they are.
More fantasy yet was in my early adulthood. I could still see myself encumbered by the thought of who to marry. I’d have a lot of mind swing. Today, I’m well pleased by Sister
The creation of heaven and earth and all it hosts in a time in eternity; the beginning, is one of the most astounding expression of the Glory of God and a deep mystery.
“You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, the heaven of heavens with their entire host, the earth and all that are on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them and the heavenly host bows down before you.
More astounding Glory still was expressed in the creation of man, who even though he is not the strongest physically, there-in him contained all that is needed to control the other creatures. Indeed, man is the crown of God’s creation and a deeper mystery.
And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creped upon the earth. …
Yet, even more astounding is the creation of woman. The deepest of mystery. God essentially said that man was not adequate, to highlight the high position and ne
SO WHO IS TRULY A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN?
True beauty lies not in looking good, but in being good. To be truly beautiful, the necessary parameters are qualities of love, kindness, joy, peaceable, compassion, forgiveness and honesty. These are not common, as compared to external adornment, and hence are rarer to come by.
A beautiful woman is a woman that is full and empowered in the Holy Ghost. A woman with a life that encourages inspires and empowers others. A confident woman satisfied in her uniqueness and focused in making a difference and leading others in the light of her uniqueness.
There are three virtues that form the pods upon which every lasting relationship is built. They are:
These virtues are all indispensable but not all equally important.
Inarguably, Biblical LOVE; agape love, is the most important because it believes all things and honors others. As we read in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians quoted in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7which reads thus;
While people may lie in relationship for selfish reason, most other times, people in relationship actually lie with the thought to protect the relationship. Yet, it’s probably safe to assume that every Christian wants a relationship that is built on openness, loyalty and trust. It is also safe to assume that one could clearly believe everything that comes out of another’s mouth once it is a Christian relationship!
Giving of gifts in relationships in such senses as a way of expressing love is one of the key areas of irregularities and misconceptions just the same way the concept of love is often misconstrued. The misconceptions about giving gifts in a relationship are parallel with the various misconceptions about Love.
It’d become obvious that advises on making Godly homes are often behoved around the ladies; the women. Why? If half of the marriage counsel the churches gives to ladies are given to brothers, many Christian homes would be a perfect Bliss. In all ramifications, it does seems that the churches doesn’t have enough scheme for the brothers. As such, they make much emphasis on the ladies even in issues that men is a central player. For instance, home making is common with women, but home making is also the responsibility of men too, and even much more than it is of the women.
Love is Christian. Christian is love. Valentine is an English word that mean ‘an expression of love, especially romantic love, usually in the form of greeting card, gift, or message given to a person the object of affection, especially on February
The account of our Lord’s dealings with Mary and her sibling is one with enormous spiritual insights. Albeit, we would only take a toll on the aspects of their relationship to further our knowledge on covenant relationship.
