Dating advice for christian men
When it comes to making up, don’t misunderstand me.
It’s such a common thing that either you’ve heard of it or are caught up in it yourself! It is the seemingly endless habit many couples have in which they will fight and makeup on a regular basis. It makes for great movies, but what works for a 90-minute Hollywood hit is a no-go in the real world.
Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. Ever turned on the television or radio to catch a sermon, song, or message seemingly written specifically for you? If you’re a believer dating an unsaved person, your date has not only rejected the Lord but also the Lord living in you. Read and learn from those such as Samson of the Bible, and do now what you’ll otherwise wish you would have done later.
Anyone ever crossed your path leaving a comment or two that spoke directly to your heart? Are family and/or friends at all iffy about your decision to move forward with the one you are presently dating? Are you dating someone who does not have a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ? There are no guarantees in life, and this includes the salvation of your current date.
Her Sunday school teachers taught from a very popular book about how dating was unbiblical, and how a truly righteous young Christian man would initiate a courtship with marriage as the goal, working in tandem with the girl's father and the pastor and others in the church body.
The heroine of our story observed that as these things were being taught, the level of romantic involvement among her peers at church, not very high to begin with, shrank to practically nonexistent.
Rather, I’ll cut to the chase and zone in on those of you caught up in one of the more deceptive, yet prevalent sin in the dating world. It feels so right, and you have every excuse in the world to continue.
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.
Some of the popular Christian books were talking about not dating at all, and just being friends, until God had made it clear that the guy she liked was the right one for her.
…you doubt the person you are dating is “the one” you are meant to marry and fear keeps you from breaking off the relationship. Draper wrote, “Doubt never means yes and always means no or wait a while: God does not lead through doubt. Don’t go so far as justifying staying in a relationship you’ll wish you had abandoned later.
If you can’t get peace, that is an answer.” When God opens the door for marriage in your life, you will know that you know you are with the right person. Here’s why: in the dating world, thoughts like, “I can’t break up because…,” mean that doubt has given the keys to fear which will drive you down a rough road containing potholes of confusion and bumps of anxiety.
If you aren’t 100 percent certain that things should progress, you’d better take a time-out from the relationship and pray for God to clearly confirm His will! If that’s not enough, your joy tank will eventually read empty.
If travels down doubt path have you pondering whether or not to proceed in your current dating relationship, allow me to throw out a sign for you which reads, “faith and peace mean go; doubt and fear mean NO!
