#011: God Centered Romantic Relationships (Part 2 of 2) [PODCAST]

Romantic relationships have the tendency of veering off track. But there is hope. I believe God’s Word can help us initiate strong romantic relationships.

I’ve written a blog about this already. But I thought it would be a good idea to make a podcast about Romantic Relationships and how God plays a role in it.

Today you will be listening to the second part of the talk that I gave at LOFT City Church. The topic I am addressing is “God Centered Romantic Relationships”.

Main Outline

God Centered Romantic Relationships

Main Text: Jeremiah 17:9-10, Matthew 6:21, Psalms 37:4

Talk Outline:

  1. Comparison of Relationship Myths and God’s Word
    • There is only ONE person in this world for you – find them!
    • Find your missing piece – two halves make a whole!
    • Mr./Mrs. Right is waiting for you – act now!
  2. 8 Questions to ask Yourself in order to Know If You Are Ready to Initiate a Romantic Relationship
    • Are you right with God? Does God have the last word?
    • Has God’s Word affirmed this decision? When? How?
    • Do you have your parents’ (or equivalent) approval?
    • Are you ready to put character over outward appearance?
    • Do you have a similar (not identical) calling in life?
    • Have you considered the practical aspects of life together?
    • Are you the right spiritual maturity for one another?
    • Are you encouraging one another to remain sexually pure?

Reflection Questions

  1. Are there relationships myths that you are struggling with or still believe? What are they? How does it line up with God’s Word?
  2. Are you feeling any tension or dissonance after hearing this talk? What do you need to bring before the Lord for guidance?
