How should men and women treat each other?

Can you be attracted to someone of the opposite sex and still treat them with complete purity?

Be a trustworthy man and woman who treat each other with honor and purity. Trust your Father to bring special connections along the way. As you are committed to walk in purity, the Father will point out to you a potential special relationship. Trust him.

Explain how church relationships function best.

As Jesus is the model for your relationships, what did Jesus do to love his church?

Are you willing to become nothing - a complete servant - totally submitted to your Father in your church relationships?

Ask God to highlight relationships in your life where you are not following his ways. As he convicts you, spend some time repenting and turning to follow his ways. Make action steps to make your relationships right.
