Dating between christians and non christians
A: 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 of the bible dedicated to the topic, or at least even a chapter.
I know I’m not alone in this frustration, because as a professional counselor and dating coach, I get get emails from hundreds of singles across the country, looking for some guidance when it comes to this crazy little thing called dating.
We are holistic beings, and in order to truly connect, we must find someone with which we can connect on every level. If that describes you, it’s important to remember the reason for the waiting.
God knows the difficulty that comes with making two into one, and He encourages His children to be “yoked” together with someone with whom they can become fully one- physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It’s easy to grow weary in waiting, and attempt to jump into love with someone that you may connect with physically and emotionally, but not spiritually–believing that this is as good as it gets, and settle for less than best.A God who gave His own life to teach us how to give of ours.Our relationship with God binds us together spiritually, but it also enables us to love unconditionally- something we could never do on our own.Being married and opening yourself up to this kind of binding love gives the person standing before you the ability to hurt you in a far deeper way than anyone in this world could, and there are times that hurt happens.Being married myself, I can attest to this reality.
