One of the most important questions a single person contemplating marriage can ask is:
“Who is truly right to be a potential mate?”
the foundational biblical principle that whenever one Christian single marries another Christian single, they have married the exact person that God has for them, and you can be absolutely sure that their marriage has been destined, designed, and developed by creator God, and is perfect. This principle is true, but it does not narrow down the process of identification. To move toward getting the right answer to who is truly right to be a potential mate, we are going to need to carefully apply further righteous judgment that is based on the word of God.
This leads to the first point. A right mate can be described in a certain manner from the Scriptures:
Foremost, a right mate is someone that God has made right.
This is the starting point. Let’s think about this as a foundation for the choice. I want us to consider that for someone to be right before God, that person’s old un-right nature (which is the reproduced image of the first man, Adam) must be crucified with Christ. Then Christ’s righteousness must be imputed to the person. This spiritual action, in Christ, describes a real, miraculous, change. It is how someone is regenerated. Whenever someone is regenerated in Christ, they become the righteousness of God in Him. This is important because a right mate choice must be a choice of a righteous mate. It is not that the person makes their self right. It is not that they merely think that they are a good person or something like that. It is that God has already made them right as a miracle work He has accomplished. Scriptural insight into the prerequisite for the making of a righteous mate is seen in a declaration that I want to make. It is based upon Galatians 2:20, and 2 Corinthians 5:17-21. Read carefully, because this scriptural declaration is vital for choosing the right mate:
Christians have been crucified with Christ and though they live, it is no longer they, but Christ living within them; and that life they now live in the flesh, they live by faith in the Son of God who loved them and gave Himself on their behalf. Therefore if anyone is in Christ, that one is a new creature, old things have passed away and all things have become new. All this is because God has made Him who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we would become the righteousness of God in Him. (cf. Galatians 2:20, and 2 Corinthians 5:17-21)
What I have just shared is totally Scriptural. It is the miracle. In other words, God wants single Christians to pursue marrying a miracle. We must not settle for anything less. I want us to especially be mindful of the important punctuation about becoming
“… the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
The miracle is able to be recognized because the person is in Christ to begin with. So first we must recognize the premiere starting point: A right mate is someone that God has made right through Jesus Christ.
Next, there is another thing that is tightly bound to that one. Essentially, a right mate is someone God has chosen. In other words, it is God who determines who is to be right and He relies solely upon His own counsel for His choice. So, a right mate is someone that God has made right. And a right mate is someone that God has chosen. The apostle Paul put it this way:
“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world … he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will … In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will” Ephesians 1:4–5, 11
