Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Two sinful people are united into one and they commit to each other in everything. When you hear about Christians living in sexual sin they are false converts and not truly saved. If you get into a relationship with an ungodly person they will slow you down. I know it hurts, but God uses this situation to work in a believers life to conform them into the image of His Son and build their faith. ” Sometimes we are not ready financially, spirituality, in maturity, or it’s just not God’s will yet. It shows how Christ loved the church and laid down His life for her. No one besides the Lord will come before the person you are going to marry. You have to say no to everyone else when it comes to your spouse. Do you listen to His conviction or do you do what you want to do? Run to Christ and whoever is keeping up with you introduce yourself. God will replace the person He has taken away with someone better.
