Christian Dating Rules You Should Follow

Christians believe that they are saved for all eternity by virtue of what Christ Jesus has done for them. Since we have been redeemed by grace, there is a standard by which all aspects of our lives must be guided by – the Bible.

In 1 Corinthians 6:20, we read that as Christians, we “…were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.” Our lives are no longer ours. We have given up the control and direction of our lives for God’s purposes. This then leads us to the primary principle that those who claim to be Christians must be guided by – that we are to glorify God in our dating. Here are some rules and guidelines on how we can do that.

1. Spend daily time in meditating on the Holy Scriptures. We all need a fresh outpouring of the Lord’s grace in our lives. We all need to feed ourselves spiritually so we will mature and grow. This is one of the best preparations we have to become the best partner we can ever be to the future partner we will marry, if that is God’s will for your lives.

2. Avoid occasions to fall into temptation. We are to take precautions to safeguard ourselves from occasions where we might be tempted to compromise. We are to actively plan ahead so as to avoid types of situations such as being left alone and being without any personal accountability. It is suggested that in planning your dates, plan your activities accordingly and do so in public places.

3. Keep your heart and mind pure. Avoid being exposed to media that persuades you to be someone who lives in way that is contrary to what the Bible is teaching. Be careful of what you allow yourself to think and believe. We read in the book of Philippians that we are to think of things that are pure, noble, excellent and praiseworthy.

4. Your end goal in dating should be a commitment to a lifelong relationship. God is the creator and designer of marriage. He intends that two people commit to love each other unconditionally, through both the good and hard times.

5. Believe that God has a plan for you and you can trust His heart. We learn from the book of Jeremiah that God knows the plans He has for us and they are to prosper us and not to harm us, to give us a future and a hope. If that includes being married sometime, somewhere down the line, it will come to pass. Continue to pray for God’s guidance as to His provision and choice of a lifelong partner for you.

6. Pursue relationships that will draw you closer to God. God intends to sanctify us and make us holy. He is not as concerned about our happiness, as He is about our holiness. That does not mean that He is a cosmic kill joy. In the area of dating and relationships, in order to know whether a relationship is worth pursuing, we have to direct and live it in such a way that it results to both of your being drawn closer to God.

God wants to fill our lives with joy and fulfillment if only we will look to Him and His Word in all areas our lives.
