Jesus was the most beautiful person on earth. And I don’t mean beautiful as in His appearance, but His heart was remembered as the most beautiful ever. His disciples were in love with the heart of God. That is what drew them to believe in Him. If God is love, He was surely in Jesus Christ.
Something every girl needs to hear - Alyssa Bethke
How would the women of the world be different if they really believed they are spoken for?
The trouble with relationships not centered in Christ is that there are expectations one puts on the other to live up to. When one doesn’t live up to his or her expectations, we set up the other to disappoint us, fail us, or break our trust. Christ removes these expectations that do not allow us to be vulnerable and humble.
Every relationship in the body between a man and a woman who are dating is to be built upon the reality of His presence in them. This way the honor and love is given in this perspective: that whatever challenges are faced, each values the other’s life above their own and seeing the other’s life as a gift given by God, rather than someone who needs to be changed to suit their needs.
Condemnation says I’m worthy of judgement.
Shame says it’s still who I am.
Guilt says I’m not forgiven.
These are anti-Gospel. Tools from hell. Not from Jesus.
