Consider Your Ways: Question 7

For whose salvation will you pray most fervently this year?

I have been having some really exciting conversations with one of my friends. We originally know each other from work but got to know each other better as we studied for postgraduate exams in a little group.

She is in a difficult situation. She lives with her boyfriend and has done for a few years. They love each other...but he won't marry her. Apparently, he will only marry a Christian. Now, if he is a Christian (I don't know what his own understanding of this is), he has got himself into a terrible situation - he should never have started going out with her, never mind living with her. But she loves him and wants to marry him. So she has tried to read the Bible but got stuck at Leviticus and gave up. At the same time, she is quite scared about reading the Bible - what if all this Christian stuff is really true? What if she has to become a Christian!?!

Now she has been asking me questions as she knows that I am a Christian. She is going to read through the Gospels and then we are going to meet to chat about them. As you read this, please just take a moment to pray for her and her boyfriend that they will both be drawn towards God, that he will rededicate his life to Christ and that she will come to know God for herself. Please also pray that I will be kept faithful in prayer for their salvation and be a faithful witness to her as we discuss the Bible and the Christian faith.

My word...shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11

How strange that he calls himself a christian, will live with her, sleep with her but not marry her? It sounds as though he should be studying the scriptures more and asking who really needs to change their life. I'm not judging but he sounds so harsh, surely he should have thought much harder about whether he was acting in a Christlike way with the lady before deciding when her beliefs would become important.

I definitely agree with you! He has treated her terribly! Please pray for them both in the mess that they are in and that, in some strange way, they would both come to know and love God.
