Break That Triangle.

In Geometry, a triangle is a plane object with three angles at opposite ends. Some maybe equilateral, obtuse or isosceles. I hope you can relate with this? Anyways to me, I love simple mathematics but the likes of calculus, polynomials and other complex mathematics, usually gives me headache. Thank God, I escaped it at the university! Do you love it?
.
Don’t worry, I’m not writing about mathematics so you won’t give me that sad face. Now, let’s look at the triangular movements most singles make that keeps them single for so long.
.
There are some kinds of single brothers and sisters, all they do is move in this cycle: CHURCH, HOME and WORK. They go on with this cycle for months and years, yet they complain that they are still single or do not have suitors. How will you meet the right person even if you have been praying since 1930? Biko, break that triangle.
.
Some single brothers and sisters attends church regularly but do not mingle with anyone. Immediately after the grace, the pack their Bibles and baggage, zoom, and they’re off! Who dey pursue you? Will your marriage partner disappear from heaven or it is angel Gabriel that will bring him or her to you? Sister Nkechi and bro James, please break that cycle!
.
Or you are the type that "churchianity" has made you believe that God only exist in your church and that other denominations are going to hell? Haba? Who has made you believe in that fantastically wired lie, O ye brother and sister Galatians? 
.
If your pastor tells you it is called ‘church adultery’, then you need to grow and stop being brainwashed at this age. Every denomination in Christianity all constitute to form the Body of Christ. You and I are the church. Likes of RCCG, MFM, DLBC or DCLM, WINNERS, AG, BAPTIST, ANGLICAN ati bebelo are places of worship. 
.
Christ built the church based on revelation and not on denomination. Your singleness go get award if you only think say na only your church Mr or Miss right go dey.
.
What if God says your wife or husband to be is from another denomination and you felt you are doing yourself good to be an ardent church member? See, you will only earn Master’s degree in singleness. Destroy that erroneous belief in your head before it becomes too late.
.
How do I break that triangle, you may ask? It’s simple. Be single and ready to mingle. Mingle? Am I carnal to use that word? No sir!
.
I do not mean that you go clubbing because you want to mingle. I do not mean you turn out to be a slayer or a womanizer. In mingling, do not be equally yoked together with unbelievers. Instead of just going to church, work and home in that cycle, join a department in your local assembly and serve God. Who knows whether that is where your Boaz will notice how diligent you are in serving God or He will use His servant to bring your Rebecca to brother Isaac?
.
Believe me, it is never a crime to attend other churches. Christianity is not a CULT or an OCCULT group. If I am a REDEEMER, there is nothing wrong from attending programs in WINNER or MFM. There is nothing bad in going for singles’ program organized by other denomination. Learn to interact and be social. As long as we both call on the name of Lord and worship God in Spirit and in Truth and we believe in the Holy Bible as the Word of God and commune with the Holy Spirit, then we serve the same God.
.
Being social isn’t sinful but engaging is social vices and the abuse of it makes it sinful. How do you think Jesus would have been able to win sinners if He had restricted Himself only to His disciples? Now, do not go about dating unbelievers because you want to mingle. Make godly friends. Enrol for programs in and outside your church if it would help you grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
.
Break that cycle! Christianity is not boring as many has made it seem. You can be a Christian and be social. In fact, you can be very social, yet spiritual. Being social doesn’t have to do with becoming worldly in your dressing or appearance. Being social and spiritual doesn’t mean it is a crime to go to cinemas and watch latest movie. It is not bad to attend other church programs if it would contribute your spiritual growth and development.
.
See, what you need to get straight is this: let your motive for mingling be godly. Be single and interact with other godly believers and don’t go social at the expense of your walk with God. There is a time to be secluded and separated unto God in communion and fellowship and there is another time to mingle with friends, families and other believers in the Body of Christ.
.
Have you been praying for God to connect you to your marital partner, who knows whether he or she is just a step close by? Break that triangle. Think outside the box. Deliver yourself from denominational bondage and taste the liberty wherein the Spirit of God is. Remember, the kingdom of God is not meat and drink but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
.
Selah!
