I’m currently living in Germany as a part of my study, which I’m really grateful for. Not only because of the awesome opportunity, but also because of what had previously happened prior to me being able to go here.
“Why would I date if I don’t want to get married yet?”
That’s the question we need to ask ourselves isn’t it, why do we really date? Do we need to get romantically involved with everyone that we find attractive?
And as I uttered that question, my parents told me that it’s not the right mindset to keep. I appreciated their response and decided not elaborate further. I assumed that they thought that from my point of view, I feel the need to marry the girl I date.
I have been reading some harsh accusations against some famous Church leaders since the past year. Personally, I don’t know for sure which is the truth. However, this I believe, that men makes mistakes. Hence, it’s illogical to lean completely at someone with the hope that they won’t disappoint us. I’m not even sure about my own judgment since I may make a biased opinion.
But this is the main point, that we shouldn’t focus on the human, but on the God they’re living for. What I’m trying to say is that Christianity isn’t about the men who lead God’s people; it’s about God Himself – how we’re being changed by God’s freely given grace as someone who receives His love with the desire of being conformed to the image of Christ. Being a Christian isn’t about living to be that pastor who seems to be living a sinless life (which isn’t true), but that we fully surrender to The One and Only Sovereign God – that we may live as Christ had lived.
