If dating is for marriage, then how should we actually date? (Delivered at a dorm night at Nipawin Bible College.)
Being a disciple of Jesus isn't something—as in, something we add to our lives or hold alongside of other relationships or loyalties in our life. Being a disciple of Jesus is everything. Jesus takes it all, and every other relationship or loyalty falls under His Lordship.
We don’t want to be like the Pharisees, who stayed in their holy huddles and never got close to anybody they saw as dirty or bad. We want to be like Matthew, who got up and followed Jesus, and then invited his fellow patients to join him at the wedding feast.
