Dating love marriage and sex in the church
I have found that the main challenges facing Christian girls (and the ones I struggled with HUGELY) are dating non-Christians, not having sex before you’re married, and the christian relationship myth!
I’ll briefly touch on these three things from what I’ve learnt in my own experiences. Dating Non-Christians To start, the Bible pretty specifically tells us we should not be having relationships with non-Christians: Your mission to share your faith with non-Christians doesn’t extend to dating them.
But again, I’ve done this wrong before, and believe me if you have a non-Christian boyfriend, sticking to this is a whole lot harder, and it causes huge amount of heartache and hurt.
God set this rule for a reason, and it’s too clear in the Bible to try and argue your way around it (me and my friends tried that one too!
There isn’t a constant stream of sunlight around us. But God is faithful, and prayer that he will sustain you goes a long way.
Some days, love will be a choice, but that proves that it’s real.
There is always enough grace, God’s love does not alter when you have sex: The Christian Relationship Myth Finally, an actual Christian relationship is really not what you’d think!But honestly, the main lesson I’ve learnt is a difficult one: it’s frustrating and easy to pretend it’s not true, but God’s way is the best way, like it or not. There is good reason for this instruction, but I remember in my youth groups and with my Christian girl friends we would find so many excuses to ignore it, because we liked guys that weren’t Christian and wanted to justify ourselves!It’s so easy to do, but I have dated a few non-Christian guys and in my opinion, it’s not worth it.Whenever I am thinking on or praying about relationships, mine or other peoples, this verse is always an excellent foundation.God makes things work for your good, and that includes your dating life.
