He points me to Christ, shares wisdom, prays for and with me, encourages me when I am feeling doubtful and fights with me to hold firm to my faith and the values we share.My experience, my getting-it-wrong, has taught me that you might not like what God’s telling you to do, but doing it WILL be what’s best for you. Not Having Sex Before You’re Married I don’t know what you’ve been taught about sex, including maybe by your church, but I’ve found that often the focus is on young women’s purity, and it’s imagined that you will simply have to deny and fight off men’s advances. You will also want to have sex, and just because your boyfriend might be a Christian, don’t imagine that the temptation won’t be an issue.There isn’t a constant stream of sunlight around us. But God is faithful, and prayer that he will sustain you goes a long way.
Dating people who are not Christian is not a bad thing it’s just not traditional, but these days what is.
This is the issue we have in the world today: everyone wants a perspective that makes them feel good.
I imagined that when I did meet and fall in love with the guy God had for me that it would be easy, that I’d be a fantastic girlfriend and that he would never let me down.
That’s not the case, the only perfect love is the love God has for us.
Ella is currently a student at Cardiff University in Wales studying English Literature and Religious Studies. If you’re in a relationship and having sex outside of marriage, and scripture has made an impression on your heart. Listen to what God says and stop having intercourse until marriage.
She grew up on the south coast of England with 3 younger siblings and loves reading, singing and chocolate brownies. You can have a meaningful relationship without sex.
Whenever I am thinking on or praying about relationships, mine or other peoples, this verse is always an excellent foundation.
God makes things work for your good, and that includes your dating life.
Heartbreak is not impossible for Christians, and the first guy you try to date in a God honouring way might not be the guy, there might not even be a guy (there’s an excellent post on singleness here, sooooo worth checking out), but Relationships are both wonderful and testing, but the best way to do them will always be God’s way, whether we like it or not.
Your relationship with Jesus is ultimately far more important, but dating and marriage is a gift from God and if you listen to and follow what He says about it, it will be worth it!
I’ve found that women having sex before marriage is often treated for some reason as a sin worse than others, it’s not.
