In today's world of numerous dating apps and endless break-ups, heartaches and so on, a lot of people are weary when it comes to dating and matters of the heart.
As a child of God, because of our precious and unique identity in Christ and the Holy Spirit, a lot more than carefulness is required of us both spiritually and physically before we start catching feelings and all what not.
The Bible tells us in the book of Proverbs 4:23 to "guard our hearts with all diligence for out of it flows out the issues of life" and that "wisdom is profitable to direct - Ecclesiastes 10:10.
That is why as a Child of God it is over important that we cross check with the One who holds the manual for your life before giving your heart to your intended special person and saying"I DO".
The Lord tell us not to inequality yoked with unbelievers because bad company corrupts good manners. The House of God is a spiritual hospital where we are all patients.
Moreso, we are to remember that while some are responding to treatment, others are not and unfortunately unlike in a physical conventional hospital the decaying state of one's spiritual state of life is not easily identifiable except by one with a deep spiritual eye 👁️ like your Pastor.
We are not to be deceived, you don't expect Our Holy God to show up and bless a union He was never informed about nor a union He blatantly and clearly refused to sanction simply because you came elegantly dressed to His altar. He has to be fully part of its every process from the first 'HELLO'.
He is not an author of confusion.
