4 ways to have a Christ-centred relationship
The following are 4 simple things you can do to keep Christ at the centre of your relationship.
I believe that those who pray together will stay together. And while prayer might be one of those things some view as a private act, I’d encourage you to open up and start praying with whoever you try to deepen your relationship with.
Take the opportunity to not only pray for your relationship with each other, but that God himself will guide both of you to personally reflect an example of His love.
“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” -Mother Teresa
Whether it be in a local church, food-pantry or homeless shelter, I’d recommend you and your significant other serve together in one way or another. Not only will you be able to see each serve in ways of selflessness, but it will be a great opportunity to see each other get used by the hands of God.
“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” -Galatians 5:13
Whether you are at a local church, conference or sitting in your living-room, worshipping God is available no matter the circumstance. Take time to worship God through words, writing, music, or even prayer. Allow yourself to freely express your love for God with your significant other. Come together in this time and selflessly place your heart in the hands of God.
“I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.” -A.W. Tozer
Read The Bible Together
If you want to have a Christ-centered relationship, there is nothing better than studying the Bible together! Get yourself a devotional or Bible study-guide, and make it a point to unwrap the beauty of God’s word as a couple. Not only will this deepen your personal relationships, but it will always help you and your significant other grow closer to Christ.
“A Bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.” -Charles Spurgeon
