Courageous Christian Father

A Christian Blog about the Bible, Theology, God, Jesus Christ, Christian Music, Christian Movies, Family, Cats, Odd Holidays and much more.

I talk about the True Love Waits, abstinence purity covenant that you make before God. I talk about what True Love Waits, why do it. I talk about adultery. I even mention that I am committed myself to True Love Waits and I am 39 years old. I also challenge others to commit too.

I have something that has been laid on my heart and I wanted to share with you via a blog post. I want to talk about “True Love Waits”.  Our church is going to do the True Love Waits again with the youth very soon. I think with this one it is called Silver Rings. But, this has been on my heart again, so I wanted to update this some and re-share it with my readers. I first published this April 7, 2013. I am republishing this on March 12, 2013. Piedmont Baptist Church did the True Love Waits on April 17, 2015, with the middles school youth, high school and the college and career youth.

True Love Waits Rings

The Above True Love Waits image by Oriel94.

True Love Waits is a way to show your promise before God and your future spouse that you made a vow or a covenant before God to abstain from sex until you are married. To keep abstinent, to stay pure. This movement came from LifeWay. It helps to keep to the Biblical standards of keeping pure and abstaining from sexual activity until marriage. Most who sign the covenant wear a type of promise ring. This ring is used a visual reminder of the covenant they made before God. Other’s have used necklaces or other types of jewelry. The image to your right is an example of a True Love Waits ring.

The planning of True Love Waits started in 1987 and by 1992 was presented to LifeWay. In 1993 the first set of youth sign the True Love Waits. True Love Waits continues to grow and spread it’s message world wide. In the first year of the campaign, over 102,000 young people signed the pledge.

The True Love Waits Pledge

Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment to God, myself, my family, my friends, my future mate, and my future children to a lifetime of purity including sexual abstinence from this day until the day I enter a biblical marriage relationship.
