This message focuses on the importance of Bible reading, and more than that, the delight of Bible reading. God-honoring relationships should be rooted in a love of God’s Word, since it is God’s revelation of himself and his will for us. What we often miss is the fact that the Bible is a delight! Hopefully this sermon will inspire you to read it and see for yourself.
In this message we look the seven “commandments” of dating. They aren’t actually commands from the Bible, but amount to seven wise practices derived from biblical principles.
The Bible says nothing about dating. Directly.
So how do we honor God with our dating? We discover principles in the Bible that we can apply to dating and relationships. This message seeks to uncover four principles that will guide us.
Mixed marriages are dumb. Not the kind where black people marry white people, but the kind where followers of Jesus marry people who don’t follow Jesus. Mixed dating is dumb, too. If it’s foolish to marry someone who hates your God, it’s foolish to date them, too.
And since choosing a spouse is the second most important decision you will ever make (after choosing to follow Jesus), it’s a pretty important discussion.
But why does one’s religion matter so much in choosing a mate?? This message seeks to address this crucial question.

What is a real man? This message explores this question by looking at 1 Corinthians 16:13 and its commands, focusing on how men can find their place in God’s plan.
Probably the best way appreciate God’s instruction in 1 Corinthians 7:8, 25-35 is to you see yourself as an alien! What Paul the Apostle says here runs so counter to our culture, it is hard to swallow. Singleness is superior to marriage, the Apostle says, because it frees you up to serve God with fewer distractions.
It seems best in a series on relationships to make this our starting point, to remember that marriage is temporary (there is no marriage in heaven, Jesus said) and that this life is preparation for eternity.
