local church is not built by one man, or even a few men, but by every believer being actively involved in ministry through evangelizing the lost people in their lives and serving their fellow Christians. A quick glance at the practice of the New Testament church reveals that they thought very little about programs and very much about relationships. Consider the disciplemaking that would naturally take place in the life of a local church if every believer would practice the loving, one-another ministry that the early churches first read about in the instructions they received from the apostles: 1. Be devoted to one another (Be devoted to one another (Rom. 12:10). 2. Give preference to one another (Rom. 12:10). 3. Be of the same mind toward one another (Rom. 12:16).

what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit —fruit that will last— and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other.

own interests and comforts for the sake of another. In discerning for a brother suitor:  If you are confused whether a brother is courting you or not, ask. Unless the brother states his intentions, do not assume. Ask what his intentions are. If he can't say, then don't entertain him as a suitor.  Why this person? What are my motives in considering him?  Do I know him well enough as a brother, friend, and co-worker in God's vineyard?  What do I like about this person? Are these what God wants me to look for in a future partner?  Am I ready to discern this person to be my future spouse? Do I see this person as someone who can possibly be my partner in building a Christian family? During courtship:  Discern if the brother suitor is the one prepared by God for you. Discern if he can be your future husband, not just a boyfriend.  Be honest with him, tell him where he stands. Treat the brother with respect and don't ignore him. Through discernment, if he is not for you, have the courage to say no and tell him right away. Don't leave him hanging.  Be courted at home, not in the streets.  Be mindful in receiving gifts from the brother suitor. Don't give false expectations by accepting extravagant and extra special gifts.  Reveal yourself to him, so he'll love the real you.  You can still entertain other suitors if there are any as long as you've not committed to a brother suitor.  Get guidance from someone who has moral authority. If he's a gift from God:  He must be something special.  You don't have to force God, He will freely give you to him in His time.  Allow him to pursue you. He might be the one and might slip away.
