Sermons on dating relationships tags online dating
You need continual encouragement to trust and obey the Lord. How will you encourage him or her daily if he or she does not trust the Lord? The world says that if you feel it, it must be legitimate. If you feel it and it is within God’s will, it is legitimate. You can think at the beginning that you can stop yourself short of marrying an unbeliever.This is an important commitment that you must make as a Christian to see God’s blessing in your life in this area. I have heard Christians say, “I am only dating an unbeliever, I won’t marry him/her.” The Christian who does this is playing with emotional fire.However, being a Christian, does not guarantee he or she has the qualities necessary to make a successful marriage.Proverbs is very clear that men are to find women who have godly characteristics in their lives.
You have defrauded that unbeliever by allowing him or her to develop a desire to marry you when you know you can’t marry him or her.This verse gives the focus God has revealed in the Scriptures.The Bible focuses on finding the right kind of wife or husband.What will that unbeliever think about Christ and Christians after his painful experience with you?You say, “but there are no Christians around who want to date me.” That may be the case, but that does not change what is God your Father’s plan for you.
