Purpose of Relationship The 1st purpose of a relationship is to teach, and to learn about one another. (Love one another) The 2nd purpose is to learn and apply the right principles together. (Love The Lord) What is the meaning of “relationship” to the world? This is easy to do but hard to explain.
Tackling the approach – Getting to know your future partner Find a common ground to start with – Principles! Don’t just focus on what you like and become blind to obvious signs To many, love is feelings – it is not feelings! Even Christians get this wrong.
– Getting to know your future partner Love is a commandment (John 13:34-35) When we are told to love one another, does that involve our emotions? No! The correct definition of love is demonstrated here, Jesus to Peter, do you love me? (John 21:15) Bottom line here is to teach one another and to learn from one another – that is love! Not just one area but all areas of life.
John 13: 34-35 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
John 21 15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah,[b] do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” 16 He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of Jonah,[c] do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah,[d] do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.
– Getting to know your future partner Develop a plan that is real, not just the romantic events or the fun things that you share. If it’s out-of- the-ordinary events that brings you together then the ordinary will definitely break your relationship apart. Life is what you bring to it and for you to cope. Not just to cope but to thrive.
Life is about being fruitful and multiply When you find the right one, less fight, more love! Bringing out the best in another by sharing your inner most being, to that one person. Whom you trust, whom you have confidence in, whom you share your life, your spirit, your future. This is relationship!
1 Corinthians 13 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
The Right One The right one is the one who you thoughtfully, choose to spend the rest of your life with.
