The One Question You Should Ask Yourself To Know If You’re Really Ready For Courtship and Marriage (Part 1 of 2)

She stared blankly at me, absorbing the question and probably thinking of an answer.

I know that this question seems blunt or rather harsh but, in reference to God’s word, I think that this is an important question to ponder on.

If you can confidently say “Yes” to this question, it means that your security is not based on your relationship status nor from anyone else. It means that you do not need a relationship or another person to complete or satisfy you. It means that you are secured of who Christ is in your life.

Dear Discouraged Discipler

I know what it feels like.

You ask them how they are and you try to reach out to them in love, but they do not respond. You wrestle in prayer for them everyday, but they do not even ask how you are. You try to be there for them in good times and in bad, yet they ignore you when things are not going their way. And in your attempt to love them by letting the Word of God speak to them, they take it against you.

But out of Christ’s love, you still protect them, trust them, hope in them and persevere in them (1 Corinthians 13). And out of Christ’s truth, you continue to love them.
