It’s true that unlike various decades ago, starting a relationship today or ending one completely is far much easier than before. It’s amazing how the whole idea of relationships has completely changed in just a few years due to new strides in the development of the online and other great advances in the telecoms industry. By just a few clicks of the mouse and some light surfing on the web, one can get to meet a large number of people and interact with them instantly wherever they are in the world. As a Christian, it is important however, to understand the true meaning of relationships and realize the great benefits of seeking Christian relationships.
Those who are already in a truly loving, caring and devoted Christian relationship will agree that it is one of the most precious gifts that a true Christian can ever find. The precious question that many eager to experience this joy, tender love, true caring and security ask them over and over again is how to get started. Others who have started a Christian relationship also ask their selves how to keep on keeping or even improving on their relationship and prevent it from reaching the common snags. The first answer to this question is to build a Christian relationship that is centered on having true Christian ideals at the core of the relationship and not just by word of mouth but by deeds.
A Christian relationship built with God’s word at its center is bound to last a long time and weather the storms or any trials that may befall it. It is part of the whole concept of building one’s house on a rock like the wise man instead of developing it on the quick sand like the foolish man that Jesus talked about in the parable. Many young and unskilled adults find it hard to believe that each and every relationship has its own trying moments and it is a strict sticking to Christian principles that is going to hold it together and make it much more maturer and important. Apart from drawing its inspiration and faith from God, a true Christian relationship should also be full of unconditional love for one another.
It’s also true that much anxiety usually grips almost everyone who dares to get into the world of dating and relationships, and much advice and soul-searching is needed to soldier on. Let us pray for this guidance and divine help in landing the right Christian relationship that is meant for us. Our Incredible Father who art in heaven, through your most Holy Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we come to you in deep prayer and great humbleness asking for the forgiveness of our sins and divine assistance in this matter of Christian relationships. It is your desire that we land in connections that glorify you and lift up your Holy Name at all times; hence, we request thee to light up our paths with your truth. Amen.
