This is why we want to help unmarried Christians to meet other Christian singles — for a serious relationship, but also for fellowship and spiritual growth.
Jesus spoke about marriage in Mark 10:9: "Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." It shows how much God values marriage.
Sadly, it also shows our brokenness, when we review the divorce rate, even among Christians.
There are some myths out there that people assume to be gospel about dating.
There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.
Nowhere, however, does it say that God picked out a spunky brunette whom he's waiting to spring on you at the right moment. When it comes to God, I'm pretty careful about saying what he does or doesn't do.
Sometimes it feels like his plans are limiting us, and sometimes it's not easy to wait for God's timing.
However, who other than our Creator knows best how we can flourish and fully achieve our purpose?
Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.Christian culture is like any other in that we develop truisms that we accept without verifying.There are things floating around that have little or nothing to do with the Bible.The Bible teaches us that God wants the best for us: "For I know the plans I have for you — declares the LORD.Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Through Jesus we may even call him 'Abba Father'.
