● How do you know if he/she is the
“right person”...or “the one”?
● If you have heard Sunday’s message,
what is one idea that really stood out
to you? Why did this idea grab your
When I was a child, I spoke and thought and
reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put
away childish things.
1 Corinthians 13:11 (NLT)
Childhood stories always END with
happily ever after. Children’s stories
END when the prince and princess
finally get together. The assumption
being that once they met, the rest was
easy! That’s how children think. But we
are adults, it’s time to grow up, to quit
thinking like a child. It’s time to focus on
what you are becoming rather than
simply who you are hunting.
Meeting the right person, without first
becoming the right person, is a recipe for
an unhappily ever after ending. To get
there, you have to change your approach
and become the person that the person
you’re looking for is looking for.
1. Created for Relationship
● Psalm 37:4
● Matthew 6:33
● Genesis 2:18
● Genesis 2:24
When it comes to finding the right
person, the Bible isn’t much help. But,
when it comes to becoming the right
person, there is lots of help. This should
come as no surprise because God
created relationships and you for
relationships. You were created with a
desire to be loved/desired/wanted
respected/cherished. Our first and most
important relationship should be with God,
then with people.
● Where are you in your relationship
with God? i.e. non-existent, strong,
it’s complicated, etc..
● Explain your previous answer.
● What are your personal relationships
2. Created for Love
● 1 John 4:7-11
● 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV)
You were created to hear: “I love you with
all my heart. I think you are the greatest.
I’m so attracted to you. I wouldn’t do
anything to hurt you.” The phrases could
go on and on. When we understand that
love has to first come from God before we
give it to others, we find our person-to
person relationships can stand the test of
time. Let’s take a closer look at what Godly
love looks like:
● Love is patient. (Not pushy. Love waits on the other
person. Love pushes us to give other more time for
stuff than we planned on.)
● Love is kind. (Considerate)
● Love does not envy. (It allows the other person to
shine and isn’t threatened by someone else’s success,
but can celebrate it.)
● Love does not boast and is not proud.
● Love does not dishonor others. (It does not behave
disgracefully, dishonorably, or indecently.
● Love doesn’t do anything that would cause the other
person to have regrets.)
● Love is not self-seeking. (It’s not on the lookout to get
what you want.)
● Love is not easily angered.
● Love keeps no record of wrongs. (It doesn’t bring up
past mistakes over and over again.)
● Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth.
● Love always protects.
● Love always trusts.
● Love always hopes.
● Love always perseveres. (Love is committed to working
things out and going the extra mile.)
1. Can you remove the word “love” and put
your name in its place in the statements
2. For those statements that are not true
about you, do a Word search and find
scriptures to help you grow in that area.
Pray and ask God to help you. Find
someone to be accountable to.
