    The Courtship Code II

    The Courtship Code II

    THE COURTSHIP CODE It is what you do in the relationship that matters, the semantics about the term; dating and courtship notwithstanding.

    CODE #1: DATING OR COURTSHIP IS NOT A HOBBY Here is how to know if you are going down the hobby lane with dating or courtship;

    A. You choose without thinking or carefully considering: It is important that you carefully consider your motives. B. When you have little or no standards. C. When you have no end in sight: There has to be a timeline to your dating and courtship since marriage must be in view. D. When you only do the fun part: There is an ordinariness that a great relationship has, the ability to just be friends. When you constantly need to communicate in a relationship, it means some things are lacking. You should be able to go about your ordinary life with your partner.

    CODE #2: COURTSHIP IS NOT AN INSTITUTION Even if you have been courting for 25 years, if you are not married, you are still single. Marriage is the institution God recognizes. Marriage is actually a step of faith; you are trusting that, though you might not have known all there is to know about this person, you know enough already to live life together forever.

    If you make an institution out of courtship or dating, you will get into trouble. You must have the boldness to walk away when someone is not willing to make you a wife. You can walk away when you begin to notice character inconsistencies. It's certainly not a sin to break up with a Christian. It's you who is in the relationship. "What will people say?" should not hinder you from making the right decisions.

    How do you know you are ready for marriage? A. Desire: You mustn't allow anyone to force you into marriage, you must desire it. You also need to work on your desire. Many of us have it clouded with fear from failed relationships.

    B. Maturity: It's one step in maturity to know the area in which you need to grow. And you are that powerful to know since you have the Holy Spirit. Who you are outside of a relationship is who you will be in a relationship with.

    The maturity of the relationship is also important. The maturity of a relationship, not the duration is what makes you know you are ready for marriage.

    Attraction Code

    Attraction Code

    Attraction Code!

    Our earliest memory of love is one that is more of a feeling that we rushed into, rather than something we learned. It is only as we grow, that we begin to learn just what love is. Emotions are beautiful, but if we leave them to control us, we will run into trouble. Love is intentional and rational. It is beyond emotions and the aww moments. You might be church smart, but you need to love smart. This is not a game!

    Genesis 2:18-20 - We learned the first principle of choosing right from Adam. Adam showed us that he will rather be alone than settle with the wrong person. You can name and define all the relationships in your life, and it is okay to not settle for those ones if they are the wrong people.

    Adam also showed us that it is godly to be class-conscious. Adam didn't settle for the animals because none of them was suitable for him. Marry people's decisions. When it all comes down to it, marriage follows the basic principles of team building. Leviticus 19:19, Deuteronomy 22:10, 2 Corinthians 6:14.

    Acts 13:1; 15:39 Even as Believers, we have a lot to learn about maintaining relationships. Many believers are prayerfully abusive in their relationships with people. There is still a lot to learn! No matter how supernaturally dramatic a union is, if you don't put in the work, it will still fail. We must be emotionally intelligent.

    One thing that affects relationships is the baggage in our lives. Many of us are hurt by experiences from the past, which is now hurting our present and future relationships. What we need is for us to first find ourselves in Christ and everything He has called us to be, then we gain our confidence and be better - for Christ's sake. So that when we are whole and complete in Him, interestingly, people will begin to see more beauty in us because of our confidence in Christ.

    Heal from that hurt today by embracing all that Christ has said of you.
