Matching Courtship with Romance

Do you know who wrote the books I Kissed Dating Goodbye and Boy Meets Girl? I heard another sermon from him this morning, actually I listened through the net...I downloaded his preach regarding love and relationships entitled Romance Revisited: The NECESSITY of Biblical Conviction.
He said that these are the six key points to remeber when dealing with Romance in a way that it matches the Wisdom of God. Here they are:

1. Study God's Word - and the only book that has God's words is the Bible. You have to respect his words and apply this to your everyday lives...he enumerated some passages about love and passion:
a. Philippians 1:9 to 11 - And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God

b. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 - it is my motto in my page...heheh...

c. Colossians 3:5-17 - Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. (just a part, mahaba kasi)

d. 1 Thessalonias 4:1-8 - For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit (magandang part)

e. 1 Timothy 4:12 - Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity

f. Romans 12:9-21 - Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality (magandang part)

2. Pray for the Holy Spirit's Guidance - prayer is a powerful right; exercise it! :)

3. Humbly seek wisdom and counsel - it is said in Proverbs 15:10 that he who hates correction will die; seek not only the wisdom, but also the correctness

4. Read some 'help' books that would help you to understand God's word that can help you to apply the biblical truth to your life - one example are the books I mentioned above

5. Isolate the value of the fruits of your decision - Examine the results of the choices that you made.

Actually antagal ng sermon na ito...but since I'm a fan of Joshua Harris; nakakatuwa siyang pakinggan each time he discusses about romance and relationships...hope this helps, just wanna share lang! :) and don't be like this picture, parang nahihiya/undecided yung guy, kaya parang intimidated yung girl...hehehe...
