Christian dating covenant
What was driving you most in those brief moments before you let your lips touch?For me, every first kiss was driven more by my own desires than by God’s desires for me.When God unites us, death is the only thing strong enough to separate us.
Intimacy makes us vulnerable, and sin makes us dangerous.
“The pursuit of marriage” was a warm and justifying pullover to wear over my conscience when things started to go too far physically and emotionally. That simple equation would have saved me and the girls I dated all kinds of grief, heartache, and regret. Think about your last first kiss in a relationship (if you’ve already kissed someone). You knew you were risking something, that this wasn’t the safest way to give yourself to someone.
We want to share life with someone of the opposite sex who will be involved and invested in what we’re doing and what we care about.
In a Christ-centered , those same risks do not exist.
We are together — in sickness and health, in peace and conflict, in disappointment, tragedy, and even failure — until death do us part.
