Principles of God’s Word govern relationship (-13, 4:1-10)6.Purity till marriage (; saving its blessings till the covenant commitment) Resources for Further Study: Audio (GCBC website version of these notes have hyperlinks to online messages): Rick Gregory, “Dating, Courting & Biblical Relationships for Young Adults” (GCBC BUM Conference, 2009)Rick Holland, “Ten Principles for a God-Centered Relationship” Pt 1 and Pt 2 (Grace Community, 9-2005)Mitch Lush, “Dating & Courting Seminar” – very good and balanced series (Trinity Baptist Church in NJ 1999)Jim Newheiser, “Courtship and Dating” message (Grace Bible Church, Escondido, CA) Steve Fernandez, Parenting series: “Principles of Biblical Dating” (Community Bible Church, Vallejo 2005)Jeffrey Smith, “A Biblical Approach to Dating” (Covenant Reformed Baptist Church, South Carolina, 1998) Print Bibliography (helpful contributions to the subject)Elisabeth Elliott, Dating – 20th century Western cultural, casual, or recreational “going out,” generally as follows: - often begins among young, teen school-children nowhere near marriage and with no intent of marriage (up to 10 yrs or so before average marrying age) for fun, feelings, fulfilling youth’s desires- based largely on outward attraction, and if interest is mutual, the two may quickly skip friendship stage to boyfriend / girlfriend stage or “going steady” relationships which consume life, energies, focus, time (taking him/her away from family, serving, church, etc.), often idolatrously [see Col.-26]- guided mostly by self, youth cultural norms and expectations, with little to no parental involvement, insight, oversight, approval or even advice sought early and during the relationship, though at least meeting and minimally interacting with father and family may occur, often after the couple already has progressed romantically, emotionally, perhaps even physically to some degree- eventually when (if?) a young man settles down to commit to his serious girlfriend, and is at or near marriageable age and the next stage of life, he prepares to propose, and a girl’s parents finally at this point may be informed of his intentions at the end of the process, asking at least for token approval- with little to no input from godly mentors or church leaders sought previously, as the couple makes arrangements for the wedding, final plans include finding a pastor so they can get married, leaving a little time for premarital counseling as a formality since some pastors require it to perform a wedding – a mature relationship of man and woman both under the headship of Christ and the daughter ideally under the loving headship (provision, protection) of her father until given by him at a wedding, at which point her covenant headship and loving leadership is transferred to her husband:1.
So in this message, we will study God’s Word to discover God’s view of work, expose some misconceptions about work, highlight some major pitfalls Christians fall into about work, and, most importantly, uncover what a believer’s purpose is in the workplace and how we can be successful in it!
The Bible speaks more clearly about these spiritual gifts than you may think!
