Dating engagement marriage and god
You’ve mentioned that your boyfriend is “warming up” to the idea of spiritual things.
You’ve even thought at times he might be on the verge of conversion.
Beware of your heart, which is prone to lie to you (Jeremiah 17:9), and of the butterflies in your stomach that often flutter louder than the Spirit within us.
Until you are absolutely sure that he has also been born again by the same Spirit alive in you (John 3:5), heed the warning and conviction the Spirit brings (John 16:8).
Because I love you and care about your future, I feel compelled to speak now rather than to hold my peace, knowing full well how you might receive my “peace.” I expect that, if you’re honest, you may have your own reservations about the upcoming ceremony.
I hope you will heed those reservations and reconsider.
Despite his warmth toward you, any attempt to have God on his own terms is an attempt to reject the true God over your life and heart.
If he has no interest in the things of Christ now, what makes you think things will change after the wedding?
I know far more stories that did not play out like ours.
The Bible gives us more stories like that (Exodus ; Ezra 9).
