Many Christian singles make this mistake in dating and short-change themselves. As Christians, Ashley and I are united in Jesus Christ.
This means that the same Jesus who lives within me also lives within Ashley.
I suddenly became anxious about not feeling nervous.
I entered the church that evening with God’s peace inspiring my steps.
If you are dating someone seriously, how peaceful do you feel when you think about marrying that person?
They so dread marrying the wrong person that they do not marry at all.
In the midst of these extremes, how can a single adult sensibly decide whom to marry?
This kind of supernatural love creates a bond stronger than that of any non-Christian married couple.
Let me clarify that our marriage bond in Christ does not give Ashley and me some sort of spiritual voodoo. Yet as we respond to the desires that Jesus puts within our hearts, He leads us to love one another in the best manner. Joined together in Christ, Ashley and I share the same wish to glorify God, the same joys and sorrows, and the same Source of love—we are one (Ephesians -32).Therefore, He can help us love one another more deeply.Jesus can love Ashley by desiring to do so through me, sometimes without her having to say anything.Depending upon performance-based human love is like eating chocolate—it may taste good, but it cannot satisfy you.Your heart needs more than romantic affection to survive; it needs unconditional love, which can only be found in Jesus Christ.Thus, it is best to marry someone who understands that he or she is married to Jesus and realizes the importance of depending upon Him for fulfillment.
