Questions to ask about christian dating
I’m not saying that your dating relationship is, in fact, everyone else’s business to the point that too many people are giving you unsolicited advice on every tiny detail of your life. I’m saying that you should involve the godly people you trust the most.
The kind of folks who will ask you the tough questions about maintaining the spiritual health of your relationship.
Without these kinds of questions, motivations start to slip, guards come down, and the hypnotizing lure of sin can quickly creep in and poison a godly dating relationship.
A couple in isolation is a couple in danger, so surround yourselves with godly men and women who care about you and care about Jesus. Do you ever feel like society offers an imbalanced perspective on singleness?
The beloved model in the book of Titus is that older women should teach younger women how to live and love. In reality, the teaching and learning amongst women in the church does not always meet our anticipations, does it?
All relationships – including mentoring relationships – require time, effort, and a certain amount of chemistry to develop and thrive.
If you’re under the impression that Jesus wants you to conform to some ridiculous mold that sucks the fun out of your dating life, it’s time to rethink who Jesus is and start to form a renewed mindset about what His desires are for your life.
He wants you to enjoy dating to the fullest, and He wants you to begin to lay the foundational groundwork now so you can build upon it as time moves forward in your dating relationship.
The Christian life is always meant to be experienced in the context of community and fellowship with other believers, and a couple should never date in isolation.When we begin to separate ourselves or break away from the pack, so to speak, a number of bad consequences start to creep into our lives.Our three enemies: the world, the sinful nature or “flesh,” and the Devil, can easily gain a foothold and influence our decision making in a negative way.Regardless of the situation, when a Christian compromises, and settles for someone who doesn’t have a passion for Jesus, tough spiritual times lay ahead.If they are going in opposite spiritual directions, it can be very harmful/hurtful to both parties involved if it’s not addressed early on.
