TLC has launched a show where people meet online, are together for 90 days, and in the end they have to get married or break up. Check out the show here: http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/90-day-fiance. So the question arises, could you meet someone and marry them in 90 days?
Marriage is a big deal! But also a big deal for some singles is the need/desire to be married…and soon. Some singles are facing a biological clock to start a family, while others are just tired of being alone. But, most of the people on the show are missing one key relationship in their life. A relationship with Christ.
A relationship with Christ makes us whole. It puts together the broken pieces of our lives.
God gives His only Son as a payment for our sins. It is sacrificial love we don’t deserve but is freely given to us to accept and have a relationship with our Creator. So, the question then is why do you “have to get married in 90 days?” Why is there such a rush to fill a void in life when Christ has already done that for those who have accepted him.
Single adult Christ-follower, hear us. Do not make a life-long decision based on a short-term relationship.
It is not the 90 days being engaged on the show that’s the problem, it is the years behind it that make a marriage. Be Complete in Christ. Let marriage be the icing on the top of the cake instead of the whole cake. When you approach dating with this mindset, then you will make good decisions empowered by prayer that will lead to a life that honors Christ.
Can you find a spouse in 90 days? Sure, but is that what God wants you to do?
