What does it take to live your life under God?

I am confused with the whole GOD situation. my bestfriend. a boy. is extremely religious he is going to school next year to become a youth pastor. and I look up to him a lot and I have actually fallen semi inlove with him

but I dont believe in god or am not sure

I am surrounded by people that dont believe in god and who have bad habbits.

I want to know what the deal is. what does it take to live your life under god

and is it wrong to fall inlove with someone who lives their life under god while I dont.

any advice?

Answer #1

My advice would be to read the Bible - maybe start in the book of John and seek to find out who Jesus Christ is - as far as marriage is concerned, the Bible teaches that a Christian should not be ‘unequally yoked’ - in other words, not married to someone who doesn’t have the same beliefs/core values…Hope this helps !!

I’m with amblessed and silverwings!

If you really think God is calling your name, and He is, and you want to know Him and enjoy His presence forever, have your friend lead you in praying the sinner’s prayer and really take it to heart.

He is always calling your name and singing over you as stated in Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Jesus has a simple message for all who follow Him–HOPE!

If and when you pray the sinners prayer and accept Christ Jesus into your heart, that is your new birthday. And you need to tell someone that you have, it will be remembered from here on. And the best part…as all the angels in heaven are anxiously awaiting your decision…they are about to throw a huge party just for you.

As you pass from this life, they (and Jesus, of course) will throw open the door of heaven welcoming you because your name will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life!

I will be praying for you!

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus…And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.” Philippians 3:14-15.

May God Bless you, toedancer as you take those baby steps by growing in the Lord!

I’m rejoicing, already!

Answer #3

toedance, I admire your honesty.

It takes a great deal of committment, for a person to serve God, in the capacity that this young man is planning to. He will be in and around the gospel, all the time. You would need to have the same love and committment that he has, in order to be happy and content in this relationship. I am not saying that it can’t happen, just telling you how important it is, for both of you, and for everyone that he would minister to.

This path requires much devotion. I would urge you to proceed with extreme caution.

If you desire to know God, and to learn about him, you will need to be in the presence of like minded people. If you continually spend your time around unbelievers, you will have an extremely hard time, in believing. Faith, has to be nurtured. We have to grow in it. We start with belief, and move toward committment.

I hope and pray that you truly find God, on your journey. He is well worth looking for. And I wish you the very best, with your choice of a mate.

Answer #4

you must believe in Jesus as your personal savior.. Love, wecan,t always chose who we fall in love with If you realy love you will do what it take to have him, Love Will change things..

Answer #5

I have a feeling that your love life will work itself out when your friend goes to school next year. For now I think the most important thing for you is to associate with people who have good habits - whether they are believers or not. Morality is the first step in leading a happy life and you can find good, moral people in both camps.

Answer #6

God says, “Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, they shall be filled.” Try Praying a little and possibly reading from the Bible. This friend seems like the perfect person to help you find the Lord. But make sure you want to find Him for yourself, not because of your love for your friend. God will help you if you truly want to know Him.

Answer #7

God doesn’t ask anything impossible…as Amblessed said..learn some about him. One of the hardest things to deal with is people who want to act big always putting you down..but love is a very powerful thing and God is patient enough…I’m glad you’re asking this question though. Good luck to you and I hope you find your path to him.

Answer #8

I was not raised with religion either. I always wondered how people who were not told about God or the bible able to get into heaven. Or people who can’t even afford a bible in third world countries. It couldn’t hurt to believan God, I suppose. I don’t believe anything, unless I have proof or it agree with my common sense.

Answer #9

Well if you believe in god or you at least understand it you will know that relationship will not work nor are they right under the eyes of the lord. You can say your goddly and run around being a good person but to be one of gods child you have to have a relationship with him. You shouldnt be hangoing around people that arent of god because your not going to get any were even if they are your BFF and wud never hurt you. It not rong to show them the love of god though.

Answer #10

Better find someone else to fall in love with. You may have been raised not believing in God and that will cause some problems with the two of you. Do you know if he is in love with you? He would possibly try working out the God part for the both of you if he cares to but in the end you say you have trouble believing so that is going to be really hard for both of you. I would treat this like the problem of having two different religions. In your case “beliefs”. Good Luck, Mama K

Answer #11

It doesn’t take any thing to believe in God ,I have got friends who are muslims but they would give anything to be christians.its easy try to read the BIBLE!!!
