Dating in the bible
Try to find anything about dating in the Bible, you will not find anything. Not only are you to lead each other by the way you live your life, but you have to worship together. You will start saying maybe I’m too this, maybe I’m too that, maybe I need to start looking like this, maybe I need to buy that. Nor will you find anything about courtship, but we do have biblical principles to help you when seeking a Christian relationship. Marriage is probably the greatest tool in the sanctification process of a believers life. In a relationship you both are going to learn from each other, but the woman takes the submissive role and the man takes the leadership role. Is he living in godliness and seeking to obey the Word? Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Two sinful people are united into one and they commit to each other in everything. If you’re going to be a leader you have to know the Scriptures to teach God’s daughter. I am not saying that you should not be attracted to the person who you are dating because you should be. Is God working in his life and making him more like Christ?
Non believers date for fun, for the moment, for a good time, for sex, to not be lonely, to impress people, etc. If you don’t think that you are going to marry this person and if you don’t feel like God has possibly brought this person into your life for marriage, then stop wasting each other’s time. When you hear about Christians living in sexual sin they are false converts and not truly saved. Run to Christ and whoever is keeping up with you introduce yourself. You must keep your eyes on Christ and pray for His peace and comfort when you are single because you will kill yourself if you are constantly thinking about it. Confess your sins to the Lord, don’t go back, In relationships you are to lead each other to Christ. If you get into a relationship with an ungodly person they will slow you down. God will replace the person He has taken away with someone better. Sometimes we are not ready financially, spirituality, in maturity, or it’s just not God’s will yet. Sometimes God uses singleness to drive you in prayer and He wants you to keep on knocking and one day He is going to say look, you want it? be blameless, not arrogant, not hot-tempered, not addicted to wine, not a bully, not greedy for money, but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, righteous, holy, self-controlled, holding to the faithful message as taught Has she surrendered her life to the Lord? I know it hurts, but God uses this situation to work in a believers life to conform them into the image of His son and build their faith. What you must not do is become bitter and say everyone around me is in a relationship why am I not?
