Threesomes aren’t allowed in the Kingdom of God

threesomesThreesomes aren’t looked upon very favorably by God. God expects us to have a monogamous relationship with him. Yes, we all know that we cannot serve two masters, but I want to talk about the concept of threesomes in a little different light than what we’re used to hearing.

When I use the term “threesome” I’m talking about attempting to include a third person into the dream and/or vision God has given you for your life. This takes place time and time again in marital relationships.

When three are not one

So God has called you to be a missionary. You’ve felt this calling on your life for as long as you can remember. As you begin to make plans to go on your first mission trip in a years’ time, you unexpectedly meet the man of your dreams!

For years I allowed myself to get frustrated because my wife couldn’t grab hold of my vision. I took for granted that my vision would be her vision. Well once again, threesomes aren’t allowed in the Kingdom of God.

Life couldn’t get any better for you. As your dating relationship grows more serious, you broach the subject of your new bow serving side by side with you on the mission field. He responds with a resounding NOT! He has no plans of ever leaving the country. In fact, he wants to open up an Auto Repair shop downtown next year.

Try as you might, your attempt to make a threesome out of your monogamous relationship with God falls flat on its face. You leave the relationship baffled as to why God brought someone into your life who doesn’t share your vision.

Well fortunately for you the relationship ended. Many times couples in similar scenarios as the one above go on to marry with foolish hopes that their spouses will change and become threesome partners in fulfilling what God has called them to do in life.

No Threesomes Allowed

The calling that God placed on your life was personalized just for you. The ministry office / gift may be the same as someone else’s, however simply by virtue of the fact that you are a unique individual, the calling God placed on your life is unique. We as individuals have no right to be miffed because the person (or people) in our lives don’t share our vision.

No extra room in my two-seater life

I’ve always been sure of what my lot in life was. The vision of what God has called me to do is pretty clear. But for years I allowed myself to get frustrated because my wife couldn’t grab hold of my vision. I took for granted that my vision would be her vision. Well once again, threesomes aren’t allowed in the Kingdom of God.

Now please understand that I’m speaking in a general sense here. Husbands and wives sharing the same vision while working together to fulfill a calling of God on their lives do exist. But these types of co-operations are definitely exceptions and not the rule.

When God brings someone into your life who has a completely different vision than yours, learn to admire and appreciate their relationship with God as you maintain your individual relationship with Him.

Support one another while acknowledging that it’s completely possible to serve God in two completely different capacities as opposed to trying to create a threesome within your household.

Avoid becoming bitter because he or she doesn’t share the vision that God created in you. Understand that the monogamous union you have with God is more than enough to make your ministry a success.

    That's an interesting view. I know explaining intimacy with God to some people would be hard, but I understand completely. I never thought of it that way. It's like Him being a jealous God. Thanks for the input, I'll try to look at other people's relationships with God differently.

  2. Never thought about this topic in this manner, but it makes sense./
