Now, before we go ahead doing that, let’s explain a needed knowledge about the connecting journey between friendship love and marital love.
It should be noted that the journey between friendship love and marital love will be incomplete without the stage of Courtship.
To start with, God must lead you to who you finally agree to enter courtship with, this is essentially one of the things that makes it better than dating! The stage of Christian courtship plays a huge role in the marital destiny of believers. It’s the stage that open up the couples-to-be to intimacy and opportunity to know themselves better in preparation for marriage. It was mentioned in the previous episode that in case when friendship exist between opposite sex, the gate of intimacy should not be opened so as not to nurture untamable feelings of emotions without any plan or preparation for the consequences which is well covered in the stage of courtship that leads to marriage.
Courtship is the stage that open up the couples-to-be to intimacy and opportunity to know themselves better in preparation for marriage.
Why is it important for believers to value and understand the concept of Christian courtship? It is essential for the couples-to-be to really know each other beyond the boundaries of acquaintances because of the journey set before them. In Courtship, the two planning to become one will have time to pray together, plan, discuss and settle things about their future life together! Compatibility building happens here too! It is expedient for godly sisters to Know their man! As it is also important for brothers in the Lord who has found favour from God on the issue of marriage to make sure the supposed spouse must become their friend before walking her down the aisle. This will help them make a better couple and understand God’s will for their lives better. when this stage is well prepared for and settled, then marital love can fully be activated through the graduation from courtship to marriage.
Sisters, Know your man! Brothers, marry your friend!
Marriage is regarded as the strongest form of emotion as it runs very deep amongst lovers. Marriage institution is a concept divinely instituted by God Almighty Himself for companionship, reproduction and as a means of building a godly home of Christ on earth. In this Kingdom of Christ our Lord, marriage relationship must be entered strictly through guidance from God Himself. God our maker knows the best for us and therefore must be contacted to relay the information that surrounds our happiness in our marital destiny. Any alteration from this, any human efforts of believers to go against this ageless principle of seeking the face of God before embarking on marital journey will lead to tears, agony, confusion, and many other things we see in the bad marriages of today.
