How do You Know When You’re Ready to Date?

Description

Pastor Derwin Gray shares valuable insights into dating.

How do you know when you’re ready to date?

You’re ready to date when:

(1) You love Jesus more than the person you’re interested in dating.

If you’re more infatuated with the person you’re interested in dating than you are with Jesus, that person will become an idol. And whom we idolize, we’ll demonize when they let us down.

(2) You realize that your worth, significance, and identity are found in Christ.

If your worth, significance, and identity are found in the person you’re interested in dating, that person will become an idol. And whom we idolize, we’ll demonize when they let us down.

(3)  You realize that God has placed the person you’re interested in dating in your life for you to bless, not curse.

If you don’t see the person you’re interested in dating through these Christ-colored lenses, you won’t see him or her as a person God has placed in your life for you to nurture in his/her spiritual journey. After you date someone, you want them to say, “I’m deeper in love with Jesus because of you. Thank you.”

Dating is serious business! Dating is not something that we should enter into because everyone else is doing it. People are not toys from Target! I think the divorce rate is so high because we practice divorce in our dating years. This is why your discipleship is so important. The more you love God, the more you will be able to love someone else. You’ll be a blessing and not a curse.
