Dating a spiritually immature man
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).
The good news is that as a Christian, you are not alone in your decision-making process. He offers His divine wisdom in every situation so that you don’t have to rely upon your emotions or finite wisdom. ” But we can understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians ,14,16 NLT). He gave you the mind of Christ so you can perceive life from His perspective.
Fortunately, as I dressed in my tuxedo, God reminded me that I had every good reason to marry Ashley and that He would uphold our marriage.For example, I have never enjoyed washing dishes, and Ashley dislikes doing laundry.Therefore, we agreed that I would wash and fold our laundry and she would wash the dishes. Trust me, I know this desire didn’t come from me because I hate scrubbing dirty plates.Yet many times in our marriage I have felt the distinct urge to wash the dishes for her. Jesus created an impulse within my heart to love Ashley in this way.On other occasions, Christ has prompted me to spontaneously clean Ashley’s car, compliment her, or stop what I was doing and hold her after she had had a bad day.
