D.T.R.

How many of you have seen or heard this as it relates to relationships with the opposite sex? Usually, it is the woman, most times, who is asking this question, unfortunately. (Truthfully, I wish I had asked this question in several relationships I was in prior to wasting a lot of time and energy, but I digress!)

For those who may not know what D.T.R. stands, it means Define The Relationship, where one or both parties express his or her level of commitment and where things currently stand.

What would happen if Jesus, not another human, asked you this question today? 🤔

Or better yet, does He even have to ask you this question?

I recently started reading “not a fan” by Kyle Idleman and it’s been so good! He talks about the difference between a fan and a follower as Jesus, taking the place of many of us as women in a relationship with a man, is now posing this very same question to us.

If He is, in fact, asking us this question, this may be a problem.

Shouldn’t it be evident by our lives (not what we merely profess) that we are in a relationship with Jesus?

Shouldn’t everyone know this?

He is very upfront and clear about His desire to be in a relationship with us, going so far as to be put on display on a Cross for the world, and you and I, to show how much He loves us.

When we enter into a romantic relationship with a man, we want to announce it to the whole world (well some of us do) or to share it on Facebook, IG, and every other social media platform known to man.

So why do we hide the fact that we are in a relationship with the most important Person on the face of this earth? Why isn’t it known to everyone that we encounter?

To D.T.R. with Jesus will no doubt affect all your other relationships (as it should). Just remember that He said,

Everyone who acknowledges Me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before My Father in heaven. But everyone who denies Me here on earth, I will also deny before My Father in heaven. ~Matthew 10:32-33 NLT

Don’t Deny The Relationship you have with Jesus, but Define it, not in what you say, but in how you live day by day.

He is the One Person worth everyone knowing I am in a relationship with.
