Bring Your Love Life Under God's Control

A year ago, when one of my friend suggested me to read a book entitled "Passion and Purity" by Elisabeth Elliot, who is known as a popular seminar speaker, radio teacher, and best-selling author. In this book, Elisabeth share her love story with Jim Ellito, "to serve as an evidence of reality", a love life under the authority of Jesus Christ. Passion and Purity show some principles that teaches us the need to commit daily to our Lord Jesus Christ all the matters of our heart and to wait upon Him.

On Jim and Elisabeth love story, we will see and know how they go through into temptations, difficulties, victories, and sacrifices of two young people whose commitment to Christ takes priority over their love for each other.

Passion and Purity contains of forty three (43) chapters that give directions in such areas:

  • singleness or marriage

  • putting God’s desires ahead of personal desires

  • what men look for in a woman

  • virginity and chastity

  • the man’s and woman’s role in relationship

  • dating

As you go along reading this book you will encounter relevant Biblical teaching that emphasize, help and remind you that putting our human passion and desire under God’s control, is the way to purify our love.

“Putting God at the center, is the only way to have a successful relationship.”
