2017 Relationships Talk- Paul and Samm Poteat

Paul and Samm Poteat give us perspective on the need to see God as greater than all things, even in relationships. God has made us for something greater and we were not meant to be satisfied by anything other than him. They then give two main ideas for dating:

  1. Community is your context for your relationship

  2. Let the gospel be what grounds you

Paul and Samm also give some practical ways to fight for holiness in your relationship:

  • Make your life about knowing Jesus and His gospel

  • Develop strong friendships with your gender

  • Develop strong relationships with the opposite gender, especially in group context

  • Seek council

  • Initiate/respond accordingly

  • Seek council again and continually
