Christian relationship dating clearwater
He needs to stay central for us regardless of whether we’re single, dating, or married.
Relationships flourish when Jesus and His kingdom are the priority of both people, but falter when they aren’t.
When we start dating, however, it’s common for many of us to slowly channel the energy that we’ve been investing in our relationship with Him into our newfound love.
But Jesus isn’t our relational back-up plan, someone we put first until someone better comes along.
More than likely you or someone you know is "messin’ around". Some call it premarital sex; others call it marriage out of wedlock. However, what seems right in the heat of the moment is not worth its cost in the end.
When you have sex with anyone other than your spouse, things happen, bad things.
If what they are saying is consistent with His Word and spoken in love, then imagine His mighty hand gently tapping your shoulder, prompting you to turn from your plans, and take a better path.
Consistent concerns are red flags God has lovingly placed in your life to warn you of trouble up ahead!
What I mean is this: if fighting in your dating world means hitting, pushing, shoving, name calling, yelling, manipulating, or anything rude that occurs on a consistent basis then, of course, turn walk away. In bad relationships, bad things happen and will continue to happen if you let them. Wisdom always does now what brings satisfaction later.
Those who have taken to heart even one or two of these principles have told me that it has had a dramatically positive effect on their life, and has helped immensely in the process of controlling their negative sexual habits and impulses.
It’s easy to give Jesus priority status when there’s no competition.
If it’s true that you don’t want to look back someday after the romantic feelings subside (and they will), and regret you lost (amongst other blessings) valuable time.
Then, ask God for discernment as you listen to others’ advice. “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? Therefore honor God with your bodies.” I Corinthians -20 …you are living together.
