A FEW GENERAL
POINTS
DEVOTE
YOURSELF TO JESUS
ARE YOU
GROWING IN CHRIST?
JOHN 15:16 16 YOU DID NOT
CHOOSE ME, BUT I CHOSE YOU AND
APPOINTED YOU SO THAT YOU
MIGHT GO AND BEAR FRUIT
—AND SO THAT WHATEVER YOU
ASK IN MY NAME THE FATHER WILL
GIVE YOU.
DOES THIS PERSON
TRULY LOVE JESUS?
PSALM 37:4
TAKE DELIGHT IN THE LORD,
    AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE
DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.
FAST AND PRAY
DON’T HAVE STUPID
IDEAS
HAVE HIGH
MORAL STANDARDS
14 DO NOT BE UNEQUALLY YOKED
WITH UNBELIEVERS. FOR WHAT
PARTNERSHIP HAS RIGHTEOUSNESS
WITH LAWLESSNESS? OR WHAT
FELLOWSHIP HAS LIGHT WITH
DARKNESS?
WORK
TO THE GLORY OF GOD
23 Whatever you do,
work heartily, as for the
Lord and not for men,
24 knowing that from
the Lord you will
receive the inheritance
as your reward.
17 And whatever you
do, in word or deed, do
everything in the name
of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God
the Father through him.
Develops: forward
thinking, planning,
diligence, hard work,
self-esteem,
confidence and
attractiveness.
TAKE
WEAKNESSES SERIOUSLY
GROW AS YOU
ASK MARRIED PEOPLE
ABOUT MARRIAGE
FAST AND PRAY
WHO SHOULD I
AVOID?
UNBELIEVERS
LIARS
PLAYBOY/GIRL
ADDICTS
PEOPLE WHO DON’T WORK HARD
NARCISSIST
ABUSIVE PEOPLE
BABIES
CONTROLLERS
IF YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD,
DON’T SELL YOUR SPIRITUAL
BIRTHRIGHT BY MARRYING
SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T
DESERVE YOU.
WAIT FOR
SOMEONE WHO
LOVES JESUS
