Before marriage, there is a process we go through when we meet someone we are attracted to. You may feel an instant connection which helps the conversations to begin to flow. We feel an eagerness to see one another, so you begin dating and spending time together. If everything works out you fall in love, your passion grows, and eventually you get married. Getting to know them is vitally important to any successful relationship. We are in that beautiful dance with Jesus! We are betrothed in marriage to Him and should be faithful to Him as we wait upon His return to us. We have entered into a formal agreement with Him and should only be seeking to connect with Him alone. He has gone to prepare a place for us in His kingdom, so don't be foolish and pursue other loves while He's away. Instead, do everything you can to learn about Him and be ready for His return.
"Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning...You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect." Luke 12:35 & 40
