How to Glorify God in Your Relationship
Is marriage the coveted arena where each and every sexual fantasy comes to life? Is marriage a crude medium to satiate our base and carnal desire for something that disgusts God i. Is burning an inconvenient reality that both God and man must shamefully and reluctantly endure until heaven?
Glorifying God begins with agreeing with everything He says, especially about Himself. In Isaiah , God declares, “I am the Lord God. I created the heavens like an open tent above.
There is a wide-spread, and withal a popular, idea that there is no such thing as an occult teaching in connection with Christianity, and that “The Mysteries”, whether Lesser or Greater, were a purely Pagan institution. The very name of “The Mysteries of Jesus”, so familiar in the ears of the Christians of the first centuries, would come with a shock of surprise on those of their modern successors, and, if spoken as denoting a special and definite institution in the Early [Page 2] Church, would cause a smile of incredulity.
It has actually been made a matter of boast that Christianity has no secrets, that whatever it has to say it says to all, and whatever it has to teach it teaches to all. Its truths are supposed to be so simple, that “a way-faring man, though a fool, may not err therein”, and the “simple Gospel” has become a stock phrase. It is necessary, therefore, to prove clearly that in the Early Church, at least, Christianity was no whit behind other great religions in possessing a hidden side, and that it guarded, as a priceless treasure, the secrets revealed only to a select few in its Mysteries.
But ere doing this it will be well to consider the whole question of this hidden side of religions, and to see why such a side must exist if a religion is to be strong and stable; for thus its existence in Christianity will appear as a foregone conclusion, and the references to it in the writings of the Christian Fathers will appear simple and natural instead of surprising and unintelligible.
As a historical fact, the existence of this esotericism is demonstrable; but it may also be shown that intellectually it is a necessity.

Glorifying God in Our Dating Relationships
Share on Facebook This is a throwback to a previous post. The idea is to look for love in the right places. This does not mean that we should serve because we might find love. God is not ultimately honored with that kind of self-serving service. Get involved in a community like that, serve each other, and look for God to open doors for dating. The trajectory of all truly Christian romance ought to be marriage, so it should not surprise us that our dreams and expectations, our hearts, race out ahead of everything else.

Do you ever find yourself wondering how to do this every day? What does studying, art or sport have to do with the glory of God? God created us so we could play sport, run, jump, dance, amongst other things. God intricately made our bodies so that we may be able to perform these actions. When we use our bodies to do such things, we can glorify God. God worked to create the world and when He saw His hard work He said that it was good. Be wise about our work, making sure we are using it to glorify God.
This might look like deciding to be honest, friendly and on time in school, our workplace and other commitments. It also means taking opportunities to share the gospel. Taking time to rest, reflect, pray and read the Bible glorifies Him. Resting gives us the opportunity both to remind ourselves what is most important in life, and then re-energise ourselves to live out life in a way that shows God is our King. Think about some of the activities you have done today, and consider how they glorify God.
Biblical Dating: How It’s Different From Modern Dating
Subscribe today to get FamilyFire emailed to you each week! So far I have addressed the foundational marriage principle of loving God more than your spouse , which is rooted in being chosen and loved by God, long before our spouse ever chose us or loved us. Out of this reality, Paul gives us four commands. Each command is directed at drawing us into relationship and creating intimacy. This final article will focus on an overarching, guiding principle for your marriage.

Is there an ever-flowing fountain of compassion deeper than warm holiday feelings that pass with the season? In the first two chapters of Luke, it is striking that the Holy Spirit is mentioned seven times. His work is cited in the lives of the unborn John the Baptist 1: Are we alert to His promptings and eager to obey? Will we allow His warmth and love to fill our hearts and flow through our hands?
Today, the presence and power of Christ remain with us through the Holy Spirit, who is the true, eternal Spirit of Christmas—all year long. Let the fullness of Thy Spirit Fall upon us here this hour. How we need a new anointing Of the Holy Ghost and power. Blessed is she that believed: Yes, it is the performance that is so often lacking, because the faith is not forthcoming on our part.
We are caught in the Slough of Despond, and never see the steps of promise, all ready there to guide us out. How much simpler our lives would be, how powerful and free from care and worry, if we only believed that in Christ there is all we need to satisfy every longing of our heart, to make us thoroughly happy and useful and holy. What are they to God’s Word, to bodily gifts: Or what are they compared to spiritual treasures?

In the fullness of time, the Savior was sent from heaven to earth to heal humanity of sin, evil, and death. Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of the Father said yes to the plan first.
He became Incarnate Mercy because humanity desperately needed a Savior to heal the infection of original sin transmitted from our first parents, Adam and Eve. Also, the yes of another person would be required. Absent original sin she was chosen to be the New Eve. Humanity needed a new Eve because the original woman of the Garden of Eden said no to God instead of yes.
Saying no to God is never a good idea. The consequences are real and serious. With her cooperation God made her the Mother of Incarnate Mercy. Born of a dual yes, the Church is the hospital of divine mercy.
