4 Ways To Have A Christ-Centered Relationship

PRAY TOGETHER

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

SERVE TOGETHER

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 hand’s 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

WORSHIP TOGETHER

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

  1. Jarrid I really loved this post. I loved it so much that I am going to quote post it on my blog for my readers to see. I truly believe these are 4 solid ways to have a Christ-Centered Relationship. Thanks for your wisdom in your posts. I hope to meet you on day.

      1. This is what my boyfriend and I do. Being teenagers living in different states and rarely getting to see each other in person, we use skype to worship God together. On occasions he will read the bible to me when I’m trying to sleep. We have devotionals were we will plan out entire discussions to talk about and go to God with our problems, so he can guide us. On occasions my pastor will give me devotionals for us to do together, but skype is the best thing to use.

  2. I’ve always wanted a Christ- Centered relationship, but I’m still single and im a 17 year old teenager :P But I have been praying that God will lead me to someone who is awesome and who also serves Him…. all i have to do is be patient and pray my guts out. cuz its like Psalms 37:4 “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.” :D

    1. I would like to recommend a book that really helped me. It’s called Get Lost: Your Guide to True Love by Dannah Gresh. It’s about falling in love with Jesus, not so you’ll get a relationship with a boy out of it, but because He is your “One True Love” and He wants to have a relationship with you! This book led me to get lost I’m Christ, whether it is in His plan for me to marry or not. He is my true love! And He will remain so even if I do marry.

    2. You remember me praying keep praying beacuse it worked for me I remember asking for a man that loved him as much as I do and he answered my prayers but be patient remember it will happen in his time and that timing is perfect.

  3. I couldn’t agree more. I always remind myself that “God’s presence cannot go where He is not present.” The best way to have God’s presence in a relationship is to keep him present in all that we do. I think the four points you’ve shared are excellent and great ways to keep him at the center of any dating relationship and friendship. Thanks so much for sharing this today!
