hey everybody I’m mark from apply God’s Word calm a place where we apply the Bible to your life what does the Bible say about Christian dating as I’ve mentioned many times before on this channel the Bible doesn’t say anything directly about Christian dating however the Bible talks a lot about honoring God in every area of your life therefore although the bible does not talk about christian dating directly there are many Bible verses that should be directly applied to dating by Christians who want to honor God in their singleness and in their Christian dating relationships so in this video I’m going to give you five of the most important Bible passages to help guide you in your season of dating again there’s no blueprint or direct law in the Bible on how Christians should date but regardless of what dating approach you do take the Bible should guide that approach so these Bible verses are just a small sample of how the Word of God can directly shape your season of Christian singleness and dating the first Bible verse that should directly impact the way you date is 1st corinthians 7 verse 39 which basically says do not marry an unbeliever it says a woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives but if her husband dies she is free to marry anyone she wishes but he must belong to the Lord one of the most important truths in the Bible that should guide Christians in dating is the command to not marry an unbeliever the Bible is not overly restrictive on how on who you should marry marriage is really not a command it’s actually a biblical option therefore it really shouldn’t be a surprise that God gives us lots of personal freedom in our decisions about who we marry however one guiding law that should shape your dating approach is this command to not be unequally yoked again in 2nd Corinthians 6:14 it says do not be yoked together with an unbeliever for what do righteousness and wickedness have in common what fellowship can light have with darkness I’ve talked about I’ve talked a lot about this topic of being unequally yoked and I actually have a whole playlist if you want more information on those topics the second Bible passage that can help you in Christian dating is Ephesians 2 verses 8 through 10 it says for it is by grace you have been saved through faith and this is not from yourselves it is the gift of God not by works so that no one can boast for we are God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do this is such an important Bible passage to help you in Christian dating because it captures core truths to salvation if the person you want to date cannot articulate the truths of being saved by grace and through faith this is not a good sign you don’t need to have the exact same theology as the person you date or end up marrying however if you want to marry a Christian you too will need to agree on core Christian truths Ephesians 2:8 through 10 is a great place to start if someone loves the gospel of grace this is a good sign the third passage of Scripture that’s really helpful for Christian dating is second Timothy 2 verse 22 it says flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness faith love and peace along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart this is a great Bible verse to guide you in Christian dating for at least three reasons first off it tells all Christians to leave youthful evil desires behind you Christian dating therefore should not be done like the world’s version of dating it should be done in a mature and pure way second 1st Timothy 2 verse 22 commands all of us to join with other Christians who call on the Lord out of a pure heart by obeying this Bible verse in singleness you will be creating the type of environment that will most likely lead to meeting someone too most Christians meet their spouse through mutual friendships and by being a part of the same Christian Sokol social circles which is exactly what 2nd Timothy 2:22 commands all Christians to do to join with other Christians thirdly this Bible verse gives us some traits to look for in a mature Christian righteousness faith love and peace when you see these traits in an adult they are most likely in a season of life where they where they’re ready for marriage number 4 1st Corinthians 6 verses 18 through 20 it says flee from sexual immorality all other sins a person commits are outside the body but whoever sins sexually sins against their own body do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit who is in you whom you have received from God you are not your own you were bought at a price therefore honor God with your bodies while all the commands for righteous living should help guide you in Christian dating Bible verses about overcoming sexual temptation will be especially helpful dating has an element of danger in it because it awakens desires in us that are only to be expressed in marriage dating that lasts too long without moving forward into marriage usually results in sexual sin so 1st Corinthians 6:18 through 20 teaches us that no matter what you’re dating approach being intentional about resisting sexual temptation is a must and finally number 5 James 1 verse 5 it says if any of you lacks wisdom you should ask God who gives generously to all without finding fault and it will be given to you there are so many more helpful Bible verses that can help you in singleness and in Christian dating but if you want to honor God you must obey his word at all times sometimes however it can be a challenge to know what is honoring to God in each specific situation this is why we must always seek God’s wisdom whenever you don’t don’t know what to do God has called you to call on him James 1 verse 5 is a bold promise that if we seek God for direction and wisdom he will provide it could infuse in is not a matter of if in Christian dating but simply a matter of when so when you’re confused in Christian dating seek God for wisdom and he will provide it proverbs 3 verses 5 through 8 says trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight do not be wise in your own eyes fear the Lord and shun evil this will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones so comment below with
