Some may ask why we have been commanded to tell others about our faith in Jesus.The answer to that question is found in the book or Romans, in Chapter 10 verse 14 where God's Word says, "How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? No matter what I write below, that list isn’t going away for some of guys. Should we be specific about the woman we want to marry? They are characteristics of a woman we want for one night. A few others might include: she likes football, she drinks beer with my buds, and she’s at least a full C. Earlier this week, I wrote the article An Uncrafty Guy’s Guide to Making a Vision Board about keeping you visually focused on your dreams. Most of the characteristics we think we want in a wife aren’t ones that make for a good, lifelong relationship.And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" How can we expect someone to get saved if they have never been told how?How are they suppose to be told how to get saved unless some person tells them?
She shouldn’t be critical of the people who you love and have been loyal to you throughout your life.Sadly, this message needs to be read by some very high profile servants of the Lord who have no problem declaring Jesus to their church, but are silent when speaking to the lost world.The sad thing is, those in the church have heard how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, many of the lost souls outside the 4 walls of the church have not.If you start dating her, much less marry her, you will discover why soon enough. Your future wife should love you just as you are, regardless of anything you’ve done in your past. She should already do a good job of managing her own life.Some questions to ask yourself: Does she care about causes? Does she give change to the needy or buy them a meal? In your eyes, she should be a “10.” When my wife walks in the room, I’m awestruck by her every time. However, I’ve dated “hot” girls who ended up being downright ugly by the time we broke up. Just remember, “charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting.” She should be beautiful down to her soul because that kind of beauty lasts forever. There will be minor adjustments along the way, but if she nags you about your core characteristics, it won’t get any better in marriage. If she’s got loads of debt and doesn’t work, you’re going to be taking all of that on.When it comes down to it, you know what you can handle. Make sure premarital counseling is a huge priority once you find her.Love can overwrite any of the qualities above, but having these qualities will certainly make your lives easier once you are married. Even with this list, both of you are still going to bring some kind of baggage into the relationship. My wife and I did a relationship bootcamp in addition to premarital counseling. Throw everything but the kitchen sink at the most important decision you will ever make.If there’s good reason not to trust her, don’t even go there. She should have strength in character and carry herself with confidence.As a man, you should be the leader in the relationship, but for any dictators who feel justified here; we’re talking servant leadership." - (Romans )I love the interaction in Luke 19 with Jesus and the Pharisees as they were complaining to Jesus about His disciples who were declaring for all to hear His miracles and without shame praising His name!We are His disciples and that is what we should be doing.
