" I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth" (Revelation 3:15-16). This passage used to terrify me. Am I lukewarm? When I was a new Christian, I learned that the only way to fill my inner void was by moving from being in the shallow end to diving headfirst into the deep end of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus wants to fill the void in your life, as He does mine. He longs to give you more than what this modern world has to offer. We cannot experience true joy until we make that jump.
I've been learning more about myself through my relationship with my husband John. The more I get to know John, the more I learn about myself— this is the way relationships work. The same is true for our relationship with Christ; when we dive deeper into our relationship with Jesus, we learn more about our identities in Him.
Dating can be terrifying because there is no playbook. Although the Bible does not talk about every specific dating need, there is a great reminder from Psalm 127 that may help in your dating life. There is a God sourced-purpose to dating.
