Dear Single Christian,
My writing stick is in action as I, once again, question today’s world of dating. Dating is a serious activity most of us participate in to some degree during our lives. Some only date and have no intentions of taking a relationship any further. While others date simply to take every relationship further.
What is your purpose in dating?
What are your dates intentions of dating?
Some reasons I have seen for dating are:
- To gain attention from another for themselves
- To run a self–guided search for that special someone
- To gain a self-worth through an active dating life
- To occupy themselves with something to do
Yes, I have witnessed daters that date with no specific purpose other than themselves.
If you are a regular reader, you know I have a passion for single Christians. So, I will get straight to the point with a few questions for single Christians in the dating world, in hopes they remember that satan is running around the world searching to devour us. And he will attack us as individuals and attack the family by devouring us before the family begins, by devouring the world of dating.
If we don’t know our own intentions, what will we become in response to our dates intentions? Simply a satisfaction to one of those shallow and selfish reasons to date listed above?
If your date is not allowing Christ to lead their dating life and you aren’t either, what is the future outlook?
As a Believer, the concept of surrendering oneself is the beginning of putting Jesus in the center of our lives. Jesus says He fulfills all our needs and we are to take our cares to Him. What does your dating life look like when you trust Him and surrender your dating life to Him?
Does the concept of surrendering your dating life to Him scare you?
