Signs he is serious dating
And if he is not ready to be a husband, dating him could only have a sorrowful outcome.Marriage is a covenantal bond between a man and a woman where there is dependence—to a certain extent.If you have just spotted some serious red flags in your dating relationship, seek counsel from wise, confidential people in your church community.But remember, the decision is ultimately up to you.Because so often, “Love is blind,” input and counsel from other people around you will be very helpful to spot positives or negatives in a relationship. All of these points, of course, you should prayerfully consider in your own life.If we as women are unwilling to be above reproach in these areas, why should we expect that from men?If there is always that possibility, then you must ask yourself whether this person has the qualities you will need in a husband. Ask yourself these questions: How strong is his relationship with Jesus Christ? How passionate is he about reading God’s Word, prayer, and fellowship with other believers in a biblically solid church? However, in Ephesians Paul compares a husband’s role toward his wife with that of Christ’s role toward His Bride, the Church, “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, the she might be holy and without blemish,” (Ephesians -27, emphasis mine).
He may seem strong and independent, but he may actually be prideful.If none of the following have happened, you may have a serious decision to make and very soon.If he’s still “considering other options,” it’s a good indication that he is not serious about your relationship.You have to be married to this person till death do you part, and you can choose whether your marriage will help you to grow in serving another believer, or will pull you down and bring you much sorrow.Choose wisely, and trust God’s sovereignty if that man has not come along yet.
