Christian point of view on dating married women dating in kolkata
What is it about marriage that is so important to me?The Importance of Marriage to Each Spouse Could it be that God has created marriage, the most intimate of human relationships, for the purpose of refining us, chiseling off our selfish human nature, and making us more “other-centered”?He created others that we might also learn to live with and love those He places in our lives.He said in 1 Corinthians -21, “But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired.” If God is in the process of placing us into the body of Christ (the Church), doesn’t this also mean He places each one of us with the spouse of His choice?Since God places us in relationships we must ask ourselves the question: Why marriage?What is it about marriage that is so important to God?Having a sound Christian perspective on marriage is vitally important today as many in our society are trying to redefine marriage to fit their particular social or political agendas.Created for Relationships Love and relationships are a central theme in the Bible, beginning in Genesis and culminating in Revelation. Augustine made the statement, “our hearts are restless until we find our rest in Thee.” God designed us for a relationship with Him.
Most Christians see marriage as a gift from God and a sacred institution.
Yet, in our experience as marriage counselors, we have found that even mature believers often don’t have a clear biblical basis for their beliefs.
Isn’t this what He means when He says that we are being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ (Romans – “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son ...”)?
How best to make us “other-centered” than to give us a spouse, very different from us, to hone us into His image?
The whole of Scripture speaks of our relationship with Him: how to have it, how to hold onto it, how to rest in it, how to communicate it, how to enjoy it.But, God did not want us to just have relationship with Him alone.
