“Just because a man calls himself a Christian doesn’t mean a thing about his spiritual condition.”

Hitler probably professed to be a nice guy. What really shows a man’s faith is action —not trying to get you into bed until you are both wearing a ring; initiating his own personal relationship with God and encouraging yours as well; and especially holding his feelings back in the relationship to allow God to lead. God’s choice of a mate for you is going to be a godly man, and if you listen, God will tell you through an active prayer life and the counsel of other godly influences whether this is the one He has picked out for you. (Julie Ferwerda, from Crosswalk.com article “9 Lies Women Tell Themselves About Men“)

Personally, I think this is good quote for sisters to keep in their minds especially given the fact that there are more single women in the church than single men. There’s probably a temptation for sisters to rationalise on who a Christian man really is and ignore  the need for a real examination of who the man ‘ on the table’ is.

I hope you find this helpful.
