Being equally yoked in dating
Whether in business or relationships Christians are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers.
Starting a business with an unbeliever can put Christians in a terrible situation.
We no longer participate in our old, sinful lifestyles.
Valuing the Same Spiritual Legacy From the foundation of their spiritual identity, an equally yoked couple has a mutual vision. They plan to make an impact on the world for the kingdom of God, leaving behind a spiritual legacy of truth and love.
This might not seem like an issue in the “honeymoon” stages of a relationship, but quickly becomes one as the challenges of life arise.
In the difficult moments of child rearing, pain, sickness and loss, it’s imperative that a couple stand on a unified foundation. Our spiritual identity is something we accept when we embrace what Christ did for us.
This is why choosing a spouse is such a weighty decision, to be done prayerfully, carefully and with the wisdom of God.
Pursuing the Same Spiritual Goals When two people are unified spiritually, they pursue the same goals. Their inspiration for life comes from the Spirit of God in their hearts.
This is an important theological concept to grasp, because when only one half of a relationship believes Christ is God, only that half of that relationship will uphold His values.
