- About Me
A college friend lead me from atheism to Christ, and he is now the pastor of our small church that currently meets in a house. We are a group of believers who have been touched by Jesus and have a hunger to experience everything we read in the New Testament.
To me, being a Christian means:
A relationship: seeking Jesus, loving Him, enjoying Him, and being a blessing to others. Not rules or religion. Not acting. It has to be real.
My favorite Bible passage and why:
Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not been made known. But we know that when He appears, we we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. (1 John 3:2) I have sometimes felt discouraged and humiliated when the Holy Spirit has exposed my sins to me, but this verse is an awesome, encouraging promise: that we will be like Him!
Personally, I'm a bit on the quiet / introverted side, but I love to serve others in practical ways and hope to always have an open door to hosting other Christians. I'm not too big into traveling or overseas missions because there's such a great need of people unreached by the Gospel here in the Boston area.
What I’m looking for:
I'm attracted to a girl with a deep longing and a burning passion for Jesus. She should be able to say with the psalmist, “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” The overflow of this love should lead to a genuine love for people, a hunger for His Word, a desire to spend time with Him in prayer and fasting. A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised!
And, I know this may sound a little old-fashioned, but if God gives us children and enough money to support them, I would like for one of the parents to be with the kids full time.
Also, just out of practicality, I am looking for someone who lives locally in short driving distance from Boston so we can get to know each other without the time and energy strain of traveling long distances. I'd also prefer to start out meeting my future wife in our usual social context: in church / small group / prayer meetings, etc. I think that could reduce the awkwardness of meeting someone from the internet.
I recently received an email with the following advice that applies to any Christian who is looking for marriage. It was written by a man I have met, the fruit of whose life and marriage is evidence that he is a real man of God, so I want to take his advice seriously.
ADVICE FOR A HAPPY MARRIAGE
By Zac Poonen
Here is some advice for a happy marriage:
First of all: Remember that your wedding day is less than 1% as important as your marriage itself. So concentrate on your marriage, even if things did not go exactly as planned, on your wedding day.
All your married life:
- Put Christ FIRST always. Put each other second; your children third; and parents fourth.
- Husbands: Never give up the leadership of your home as its head.
- Wives: Esteem your husband always and allow him to be the leader
- Never get discouraged – especially when you discover that you are not perfect and that your partner is not perfect either.
- When you slip up (as you both will, many times), be quick to ask forgiveness from God and from each other, immediately. And don’t condemn yourself.
- Be quick to forgive each other; and then put the event behind you.
- Never remind each other of past mistakes.
- Remember past kindnesses, and don’t ever forget them.
- Be thankful to God for the good things you see in each other and for all that your partner does for you. And express your gratitude to your partner as well.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with Christ-like love for each other (Romans 5:5).
- In provocative situations at home, die to Self – and react as Christ would.
- Seek to eliminate murmuring and grumbling from your home completely – as otherwise, it will slowly destroy your marriage.
- Use money and material things – but don’t love them, because that will ruin you.
- When God blesses your home in some way, give Him alone all the credit for it.
- Develop the habit of gentleness in your conversation with each other.
- Don’t gossip about people’s failures in your home, but learn from their failures as warnings for yourself.
- Be absolutely faithful to your partner. Never compare your partner with anyone else, even for a moment. Be faithful to each other, even in your thoughts.
- Remember that God has ordained the physical union of your bodies to be an expression of your pure and faithful love for each other. Keep it that way always.
- Trust God to see you through every difficult situation.
- Value fellowship with God’s people in your local church.
- Remember that the path to a good marriage is a long one. But “the journey of a thousand miles is made one step at a time”. So keep going forward always.
- Remember that the Lord is always on your side – and He is ever ready to help you.
This is not a complete list. But it can help you to make a good beginning towards a glorious Christ-centred marriage. May the Lord encourage you to press on towards perfection.
