Blurred Lines with Jamey Dickens
When it comes to dating and relationships, are you in constant battle between the world’s expectations and the Word’s expectations? Is “talking” just talking? Does going out on a date suggest you are in a committed relationship? Is sex an important element in testing compatibility and building a “healthy” relationship?
Let’s face it… many of us get lost in attempting to define our relationships according to the world’s terms while we lose focus of the ideas God has already laid out for us. The lines our heavenly Father has drawn are blurred when we try to move them into our world.
We desire intimate relationships with others, whether romantic or not, because we are created in His image—in the image of a God who is interactive, relational and personal. Just as He longs for us to intimately experience Him, He longs for our earthly relationships to reflect Him. It’s time to discover what true relationships look like, step into those blurred areas and allow the light of God’s Word to bring us back into focus. Ephesians 5:8-10 says, “[We] groped [our] way through that murk once, but no longer…. The bright light of Christ makes [our] way plain…. Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it.”
