Two of my friends are in dating relationships that will soon be tested by a long period of separation.I can relate to their frustration and dread over the upcoming goodbye, because my husband Andy and I have had to endure being apart for long periods of time twice - once for six weeks when we were dating, and once for five months after getting married.The people of Jesus’ day were no different than I was.Learn all about Christianity at with rich, theological articles, video, and audio focused on the life of Jesus Christ, Bible Study, the Christian church, and Christian living for families.Grow in your faith and walk with Christ as you read about the history of Christianity, salvation, evangelism and discipleship.Use free daily devotionals from your favorite pastors, authors, and speakers as a way to spend daily quiet time with God.
We've been getting really busy lately and would like to find time to get closer to God and to each other as it seems we are drifting farther and farther with all of the daily stresses.
Third, the Word of God truly preached brings us by the power of the Spirit into the presence of Christ. You also want your significant other to have communion with the body of Christ outside of your own relationship. Did you note the developing trend in the four points above?
Finally, we need to hear an outside word that we can't quickly rationalize, twist, distort, or ignore. If your relationship becomes the center of their faith, the main and only encouragement they have in Christ, something has gone wrong. All four stand on their own as solid reasons to be committed to gathering (and being a member of) a local body.
A friend of mine recently got married and said even though her relationship was not struggling, her and her FI (at the time) purchased The Love Dare for their devotional.
