Before making a decision about a relationship you need to ask yourself some important questions. Do I know who I am in Christ? Do I define myself by Christ? Does this person I am engaging define themselves by Christ; do we have a similar sense of call and are we moving in the same direction? Have I allowed the Spirit of God to redefine in me what true love is?For a sound and solid relationship, the first thing that should be considered is the identity of the individuals who were created in the image of God after His likeness. It begins with their identity and then it goes to their compatibility. The Bible says that when God created Eve, He created her as one who reflects Adam. In other words, they have a sense of compatibility. They can see something of themselves in one another. They recognize who they are as individuals and they recognize that they are really good together; that there is something about their chemistry. They see God in one another, and they see an element of themselves in one another. And it’s not just the man and the woman loving each other, it is ultimately God hovering over that relationship. Then it will be godly and it will be sound.
