Basic principles christian dating
Watch out for the “might be” snare, as in, “He ‘might be’ flirting with me and so I’m going to get carried away thinking about every possible place [read: marriage] that could lead.” It is entirely possible to honor God, yourself, and a brother in Christ on a date. Be able to walk away from a dating relationship with your whole heart intact so that your future husband is not robbed of part of it down the road.
Don’t elevate him or the relationship to the place that God alone should hold in your heart. Prayerfully consider what, when, how much to give away.
The end goal of Christian dating is marriage, and you should have this in mind throughout your dating period. Christians date in the search of a life- long partner, and not for the sake of it.The Christian journey is not an easy one and you need someone to hold your hand when times get hard.Dating a non- Christian only makes it harder for you to stick to your faith. These are such simple words to say, but they have the most deep and resounding impact on our souls if we would just believe.We must repent of our pride, our shame, our obsession with our looks.
