Obedience to Jesus is the filter through which every action must pass. Christians Pursue God’s Wisdom When it comes to dating, God’s wisdom is desperately needed.
If we are committed to obeying Jesus, than that necessarily rules out dating unbelievers. There are so many issues which aren’t explicitly addressed by Scripture, and therefore require wisdom.
And here’s the kicker: believe it or not, the Bible doesn’t actually say a whole lot about dating/courting relationships.
When we place our above Biblical principles, it’s a recipe for disaster.
Keep the lust in check and the touching to a minimum (Matthew -29). Since dating may eventually lead to marriage, we probably should not begin dating too early or date one person too long, unless we are ready to commit to a lifetime relationship.
Christians pursue Jesus, pursue wisdom, pursue purity, and pursue community. The practice of these principles will look very different in each relationship.
Life has so many hues, and each person is so different.
Wisdom is an essential component when thinking through this issue.
Christians Pursue Community This principle applies to dating couples, just like it applies to every other Christian.
As Christians, we are part of God’s family, and we allow other believers to speak into our lives.
