Dating with god
1 Corinthians reminds us that no matter what it is we’re doing; it can be used as a means to glorify God.When it comes to dating, I think we could all benefit from relaxing a bit about searching for hard and fast rules, and learning to apply Godly wisdom to every single part of our lives.
And what’s more, how do you become the right person to date? In today’s world, most dating starts with eros: passionate or emotional love that comes and goes.But though the Scriptures are filled with foundational life-changing truths, there are plenty of topics the Bible doesn’t specifically speak to.Not only is there nothing in the Bible specifically about dating, but the concept of dating didn’t even exist in biblical times. If you are playing the waiting game right now, be patient. In the fairy tale, it’s a waiting game for both of them.Finding a mate functioned a lot more like a bartering system than dinner and a movie.
In most aspects of modern life, God doesn’t provide cookie-cutter answers or formulas.
But be encouraged, though He may not always provide us with the direct plan, He always gives us everything we need to get where He wants us to go.
Though the Bible doesn’t talk directly about dating, it does speak volumes about relationships, godly interactions and principles that can be applied to how you date.
According to the Word of God, neither of you is truly showing love to each other. If he really loves you, he will want you (not just sex) and will be willing to wait until after the wedding.
Type the word “dating” into your Bible search tool and what comes up? When I was single, I remember wishing there was an entire book—or even just a chapter—of the Bible dedicated to the topic of dating.
If you commit to follow the progression God has planned for a meaningful dating relationship, you will not be led astray.
