I'm In A Relationship: Who Are You Committed To - God Or Your Boy/girlfriend?

Man was created by God and he once had an intimate relationship with Him before the fall. The relationship was great that the devil became so jealous of it. After the fall, which the devil was happy for, he left God and every means he sought to find happiness, satisfaction and acceptance in life resulted in futility. All relationship he entered into resulted in a shipwreck of his life.
.
Now the devil celebrates more as he see people live their lives without God because he knows their end.
.
In recent times, quite a lot of singles are becoming more conscious of the pleasure that they derive from their relationships with the opposite sex without considering the place of God in their lives. This has led more to the occurrence of relationship issues in their lives. Hardly would you find someone in life who hasn't experienced issues in their life and relationship.
.
Meanwhile, issues are inevitable but the consequential ones are avoidable when you involve God in your life and relationship with others.
.
Who are you committed to in that relationship: God or your boyfriend or girlfriend? When you're committed to your 'friend', two things are involved: you'll suffer more consequences and your hope of success in life and eternity is bleak.
.
What would your life be when you gain the whole world of pleasure with your boyfriend or girlfriend? Yet, you suffer loss in the major relationship that matters in life?
.
A relationship without God will expose you to bitter consequences such as deception, heartbreak, premarital sex, unwanted pregnancy, abortion, unprepared motherhood, wrong marital choice and a bad marriage, sexual immoralities and degradable sexual passion. Because most people don't get committed to God in their relationship or acknowledge Him first or make Him a 'spare tyre', God gave them over to vile affections to do those things that are unseemly.
.
Why would you live your life without God seeing that He created you and wants the best for you? There's no better life that you can live or enjoy without God, it might seem rosy now but in the long run, you'll be faced with untold issues.
.
But when you get intimate and committed to God first before anyone, He will give you all the wisdom and guidelines you need to have a hitch free relationship. He'll make your life better before He gives you someone that would become beneficial to your life and destiny.
.
From His wealth of wisdom, He will give you direction on what you need to do or know as touching that relationship so that you don't end in destruction like those who don't revere God in their lives.
.
Because God is all knowing, He will guide you on making the right choice when it comes to choosing a life partner, provided you depend on Him. The best any man can find for himself without God is a 'good' partner. But when He leads and guides, He'll give you a suitable partner that would fit perfectly into your life and destiny, both now and in the future.
.
Why would you journey life and that relationship without God? God is real. He appears real to those who come closer to Him, but when you're faraway from Him due to ignorance and negligence He'll become abstract to you.
.
Do you know the beautiful part of it? God is ready to accept you into His family once you're ready for Him and now should be the time. Regardless of how terrible your sins are or irrespective of the past life you have lived, he will accept you the earlier the better. If he can accept the prodigal son or Saul, the persecutor of the early church, He can also accept you in spite of your shortcomings.
.
All you need to do now is to repent: turn over a new sheet of life; confess your sin: tell Him how sorry you are with sincerity of heart; ask that Jesus comes into your life and confess Him as your Lord and savior. It's that simple!
.
Then break off that immoral relationship with your boyfriend or girlfriend. It's difficult though but it's the best decision you will never regret in life. Why the break up? So that you can have an undivided attention and cordial relationship with Him because He's a jealous God. He wants to be the first and last in your life and not the spare wheel.
.
Meanwhile, just as you use to do with your boyfriend or girlfriend during those immoral years of ignorance, talk to God more often in prayers; hear His voice through personal study of the Bible and fellowship with a bible believing church where you can learn and grow in faith.
.
Remember, you have absolutely nothing to regret in life when you're committed to God in life and relationship because He will be committed to you. But you have much to regret when you get committed to your boyfriend or girlfriend without the One who made you.
