God centered dating

Relationship building with the opposite sex is risky, but in the created order of God's universe two become one (Ephesians ).

However, this will never happen for you personally until you, as a man, accept your God-given role.

Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Two sinful people are united into one and they commit to each other in everything. When you hear about Christians living in sexual sin they are false converts and not truly saved. If you get into a relationship with an ungodly person they will slow you down. 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. ” Sometimes we are not ready financially, spirituality, in maturity, or it’s just not God’s will yet.

It shows how Christ loved the church and laid down His life for her. No one besides the Lord will come before the person you are going to marry. You have to say no to everyone else when it comes to your spouse. Do you listen to His conviction or do you do what you want to do? Run to Christ and whoever is keeping up with you introduce yourself. God will replace the person He has taken away with someone better. 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. Sometimes God uses singleness to drive you in prayer.

Hang around Christian singles long enough and you're sure to encounter a certain emotion. Women, on the other hand, are frustrated because they want men to take initiative, to lead. Don't believe everything you hear; Christ-centered women still believe that God assigned respective roles to the sexes. Stepping Up I'll say more about this later, but for now I'll just blurt it out—it takes a man to be an initiator.

Men are frustrated because they don't understand what women want from them; and if they do have a clue, men feel the expectations are too high. How should Christian men and women move toward deeper friendship, possibly even engagement and marriage?

Clearly it is Christ who initiates the relationship—“We love because he first loved us” (1 John ).

YOU want to make things work but you just cannot figure out how to turn off that switch. Do you think that God doesn't look at ya'll playing around with the SAME destest?! SO stop being all sexual as you sing & dance a beyonce song to your guy.

As a practical matter, are you responsible and holy in the way you possess your own spirit, mind and body?

As you move into the stage of life in which you begin to seriously consider marriage generally or a particular relationship, your first step should be to soberly reflect, before God, on your own spiritual walk and maturity in Christ.

And trust me sisters, I have BEEN there & DONE all that.

I dated as a Christian but was STILL all up in the world & I courted God's way-- where my husband and I didn't kiss until our wedding day.
