So you may not be married yet. But you do want christian dating advice for the search to become husband and wife. The best thing a single christian could do is get advice from someone who has been there. I am glad you have come to us for your date advice.
When I was in search for my wife I heard a lot about how I should go about it. So many people have said to me "Just wait and let God bring her to you". In fact that seems to be the mantra for most christian dating books. I can tell you that line of thinking is VERY flawed.
Why would I say such a thing and go against years of christian teaching? Simple, I have been there and I know better. Sure you could spend your life waiting on God to rain manna from heaven into your lap. But why wait for that when He has already sent it into the field and you just have to go get it?
Let me tell you the advice I have learned. Faith is a great thing. It is filled with much promise. You just have to know how to use it. That's right, I said use it! Remember faith without works is dead. So simply believing God will deliver a husband and wife to you without doing anything about it is dead faith.
After praying one night again for the last time asking God for a wife He stopped me. He said to me that His word would direct my path but I had to walk it. In short He said I needed to start looking.
It is the same as every story in the bible about a husband and wife. They all had to be searched for and won in some way.
With all that said I want to tell you christian dating is different than what the world thinks dating is. Christians date for the purpose of finding their spouse. It is not just for a fun night out with someone. There is a lot you need to get to know about the other person.
It may be the oldest line in the book but you REALLY need to be yourself. That is the best christian dating advice you can get. I say that because when you put on a show you can not keep it up forever. One day they will know the real you like it or not. Save yourself time and pain by being honest.
