Sometimes Christians are not sure if they are following God and the question pops up: Am I a real Christian? Does just because I’m a good person make me automatically a Christian? Will my life be easy if I follow Christ? Here is some great guidance for Christian singles who want to actively follow Jesus in their daily lives.
Dear Jim: Am I really a Christian?
It’s easy to fall into the assumption when one writes for a Christian dating site that all reading the articles are Christians. God has provided an awesome gift available to all – but not all have received it. Allow me to share some thoughts in how I believe this is the ultimate experience.
You’ve met someone special on a Christian dating site, you’ve sent messages, spent hours on phone calls and now it’s time for the first date. What should you do and what to expect from those dates? Some great tips from Dr. Jim to make sure that your first date is successful.
Dear Jim: Do you have any tips for singles who met on the Internet and are planing a first date?
Have you head the expression ‘things always look good on paper’? There is an element of this that is true for those who meet others on dating sites and want to begin a relationship.
Although I do hear of some singles that flatly out lie on their profiles, I believe that most profiles are completed in honesty. Let me ask you a question? When you completed your profile, did you finish the task wondering whether or not you had really done a complete and good job? If you are like most, you wrestled with whether or not what you had put done was exactly what you wished to project.

One of the most influential Christians of our time, C.S. Lewis is known for his great Christian quotes and insightful and encouraging words for Christians around the world. Known by his closest friends as Jack, Lewis was a Christian writer who enchanted the world with books such as “The Chronicles of Narnia”, “The Great Divorce”, “The Screwtape Letters”, “Surprised by Joy”, and “Mere Christianity”.
Back in 2006 in the book “Bono, In Conversation with Michka Assayas”, Bono openly talks about Jesus and what Jesus means to him and who He was. Later on you will read another insert with Jim Daly (from Focus on the Family). This is a great way to evangelize youth and young adults using the words and beliefs of a great singer and humanitarian.
This wasn’t the first time Bono “came out” as a Christian, as their songs have frequent Biblical content and themes. It is quite inspiring to hear the lead singer of U2 talking about Jesus and what He has done for us all. These are inspiring interviews and are worth duplicating here. Please leave your comment below, and let us know how Bono’s words inspire you.
Here are some inserts from the interviews and what Bono had to say about Jesus:
Joanne Ellison writes about how we should trust and wait for God’s timing, as waiting makes believers stronger.
Isaiah 40:31- But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
