Commitment…then Intimacy

Chew on this…

Commitment produces intimate relationships, in that God-given order.  The order God established is not an intimate relationship then commitment.  God shows Himself to you in different ways and allows you to choose Him.  Before there is a solid commitment you do not enter the Holy of holies, into the most sacred dwelling place with our Savior, into communion with His Spirit.  You are not intimate with Him until that most significant step is taken: commitment.

    A bit late on this, but I just found the blog!

    I was just talking to a typical high school girl this week, who couldn’t fathom that I didn’t want to date and did want to marry (how will you meet a guy??). She told me that she had dated guys, and thought they were really great, then kissed them and immediately found that she no longer like them. I commented that it appeared to me that the kiss without commitment had the exact opposite affect as a kiss with commitment. She looked like a lightbulb had just gone on in her head.
