A Christian relationship is meant to be beautiful. However, many people have experienced thorns and thistles along the way. God’s ultimate purpose for every relationship is to bring glory to Him. Whether the relationship is between married couple, engaged to be married, or singles, there are some basic fundamental truths and principles for Christian relationships.
Every relationship will pass through the storms of life, but your survival depends on the foundation you’re standing on. As a single you have the freedom to decide which direction a relationship should take. You can choose to become romantic or just be friends.
God is so powerful that He can allow you to choose and still give you a future and an expected end. God lets us make the decision to love or not to love.The more you love God, the more you know YOU and your purpose on earth. If you don’t know WHO YOU ARE, you might as well not know what you can have, and what you want.When we let others define who we are we let them take advantage of us. The marriage covenant, entered into specifically and actively in faith and love, can completely set fear aside – so both man and wife enjoy complete trust with one another, knowing the faithfulness and commitment of their partner.
Whether it is a friendship or a romantic relationship, it will only thrive when we put in the effort to make it grow.This kind of love is AGAPE. It does not respond to the antecedent value of its object but instead creates value in the beloved. It grows through humble little steps to maturity.In your marriage relationship, you will quickly learn the meaning of selflessness, of picking up your cross, and of dying daily to your own desires. The process involves listening, learning, sharing, sacrificing, giving, accepting, without consideration of ego.True love is an expression for the other’s good.
Is your relationship in a mess? Go back to the drawing board. Find out God’s purpose for your relationship. Marriages require work and time if you want to keep them alive and fulfil God’s purpose.God specializes in making sense and beauty out of the most hopeless and messy situations. The one key that encompasses maintaining a healthy love relationship is spending time together. Life carries amazing moments of joy and a lot of really terrible moments that make us feel bad in our relationships, but we still need to live our lives to the praise and glory of God, and by His grace despite how we feel in the moment, there is always a way out.
