Some people prefer to meet their spouse through friends, family, or in a chance meeting out in the world, and many do just that.
But others believe they are limited in the people they meet because of their profession, the size of their city, or the nature of their activities.
A Christian man should take the lead in relationships and making sure their relationship glorifies Christ in all things.
A Christian woman should let the man take the initiative as the leader God made him to be.
As in all decisions, we should ask God to direct us clearly.
It can be difficult to meet single Christian men and women, especially if most of our friends have already married.
God uses our choices, other people, and sometimes even modern technology, to bring about marriages.
Before a Christian single considers any of the “newer” methods of finding a spouse like using a Christian dating service, it’s helpful to consider whether we may be engaging in any self-defeating behavior.
Before beginning any of these methods, we should begin in prayer, asking God whether it is the step He wants us to take.Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.There should be a balance, as we remember that God is perfectly loving (Ephesians ; 1 John -18) and perfectly sovereign over every situation, desire, and need (Psalm 1; Romans -39).Internet dating is currently the most popular alternative way to meet singles.There are several Christian dating services as well as secular services that allow users to limit their searches to Christians.
