hey guys welcome back to my channel in keeping with the February theme I’ve been doing of singleness dating relationships for today’s video I want to round up the best sermon series and podcasts on Christian dating and relationships that I personally have listened to I love listening to this type of content and just gleaming wisdom from it and the resources I’m going to be sharing in today’s video are the ones that have really influenced me the most in terms of how I view all these different stages how I view singleness dating a marriage and really what the purpose of each of those things are what the goal should be in it and so I have learned so much from these resources and I really hope that you do too and then also if you are more of a reader I am gonna be sharing at the end of this video the top five books I have read on this topic including my all-time favorite that I really just think everyone should read regardless of relationship status if you’re new to my channel I do all sorts of faith related content I love doing Bible study videos and just addressing different topics from a biblical perspective and then I also do some lifestyle videos and I’m planning to start to get more into that side of things as well so please be sure to hit the subscribe button if you haven’t already also I wanted to mention that all the resources I’m going to be talking about will be linked below in the description box if you do want to check those out without further ado here are the 7 best sermon series and podcasts on Christian dating and relationships number one is the love ology series by Bridgetown Church in Portland Oregon this one is done by John mark comer and I love it because it takes a look at what the Bible has to say on all things love sex romance and marriage and it’s really looking at the theology of each of these things as they say it is a look at what the Bible has to say on the never ending story of male and female number two is the IDI free Fullerton sex love and God podcast my favorite part about this podcast series was when the Pastor Mike Erie unpacked the Song of Solomon to show how it can actually give us a guideline of three things to look for in a spouse and I love this because it’s not something I would have caught in reading on my own but he really unpacked the historical context to help us understand what the passage is saying about what is to be valued in a spouse number three is the series hashtag relationship goals by transformation church in Tulsa Oklahoma this one is by Pastor might Todd and it is just filled with so much wisdom and so many nuggets to glean one thing that stood out to me about this series is an analogy that he gives on God’s design for sex within marriage I feel like I’ve heard a lot of these different analogies within Christian culture but this one was really just so powerful and it really stood out to me and it was so so good number four is a series by Ben Stewart called single dating engaged married and I really don’t even know where to start with this series there’s so much goodness packed into it I love that he addresses really the purpose of each of these things what is the purpose of singleness the purpose of dating the purpose of marriage and I think understanding that purpose really brings a lot of clarity as to how to approach those different things and so he covers a lot and then he also just provides a lot of biblical wisdom on really practical things like who should we date and what should we look for in a person we date and what our biblical principles of wisdom we can apply to the dating process that we can just pull from these different Bible stories number five is the dating series by the porch the porch is I believe a young adults group from a church in Texas and they actually have a ton of different relationship series but the one I want to highlight is one I listened to recently and it’s their fantasy series so they’ve got a sermon on the fantasy guy the fantasy girl fantasy marriage and fantasy love and really what it is for each of those things they’re taking a look at different Bible passages that can be applied to sort of give us a really clear list of those things so what to aspire to be in a godly guy or what to look for in a godly guy and then also for girls what to aspire to be in a godly woman and what to look for in that if you are a guy and then for a love and marriage it’s taking a look at what the Bible has to say on what the quote-unquote fantasy version of that should be or what the ideal version of that should be and so there’s a lot of wisdom in those series number six is the date ology podcast and this one’s actually really cool because it is done by some people out of reality San Francisco which is a church near me and I love this one it’s really unique because like all these other series we’ve been talking about it does address all these different aspects of dating singleness relationships marriage all this stuff but it comes at it from a very unique perspective because the two people who run the podcast one is an MFT so she’s a licensed therapist and then the other is a pastor at a church so it’s kind of coming at it from both a theological perspective and then also a psychological perspective it’s just so interesting and then they also go into some more topics that are a little bit unique from the other series like family of origin or childhood wounds or how all that stuff kind of affects what we’re bringing into a dating relationship or marriage and so there’s lots of good stuff in this one as well and then last but not least number seven is the new rules for love sex and dating by North Point Community Church out of Atlanta I believe and that is done by Andy Stanley if you have ever heard the phrase become the person the person you’re looking for is looking for this is where that comes from and so I love this series because it kind of approaches it from this idea of instead of focusing so much on our list and what we’re looking for we need to make sure that we’re actually ourselves living up to those same standards and so it focuses a lot on us growing more into the image of God us growing those qualities that we want in another person and how that is ultimately going to lead us in the right direction in terms of building a good relationship all right so those were my top sermon series and podcasts now I’m going to quickly go through some of my favorite books on this topic so first up we have got swipe right by Levi lusco let’s go am I saying that right but this one basically kind of just debunks our current dating culture and really brings a biblical perspective to that as you can tell from the play on words it is talking about dating app sort of but really just a lot more than that and this one was super good number two love ology this is the book that that very first sermon series I mentioned is based off of the love ology series by Bridgetown church and so again this is really going into the theology of all things God love marriage and sex and there’s so much biblical wisdom in this book I mean it’s gianmarco myrrh so really that tells you everything you need to know he’s great number three is the sacred search by Gary Thomas he also has a book the sacred marriage for those of you married couples out there I’ve heard that one’s really great but I’m just going to go ahead and read this subtitle it says what if it’s not about who you marry but why and so I really loved this book because it goes into the purpose of marriage which in turn really informs how we date in who we date and so this one has really practical wisdom as far as the dating process number four single dating engaged married again this is the book version of that sermon series I mentioned by Ben Stewart and he is with passion city church and see I believe I just love Ben Stewart he has a really unique way of being able to pull just really profound insights from Bible stories that I think are really easy to miss and just reading over them or in being super familiar with them and so he just pulls out a lot of that to provide super practical wisdom for dating now for my all-time favorite it is none other than Tim Keller this book is so so good I first read it back in college for a theology of marriage and family class I took and again it’s kind of going into the purpose of marriage that I think sometimes we overlook or don’t realize but it is honestly so applicable for just the Christian walk and kind of just talking about how God works in our life what that journey looks like of walking with him and so this book honestly regardless of your relationship status I really really think any Christ follower should read this can’t recommend enough so there you have it a plethora of resources on Christian dating and relationships I hope that this helps just point you in the right direction if this is something that you are wanting to learn more about or grow in I would also really love to hear from you if there are sermon series or podcasts or books that I didn’t mention here that you really love that have impacted you and so leave a comment down below if
