Setting boundaries in a christian dating relationship
You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. If you are not married yet, sex will hurt your relationship and your discernment process for marriage.Premarital sex will hurt the marriage, not help it.Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? This may sound harsh, but sexual sin is a serious issue.God doesn’t want you to see how close to the line you can get. The man needs to bring this up and the earlier the better.Setting Christian boundaries is the loving thing to do. As Christians we feel a constant pull to do what other people want, yet in giving in to them we give up something else.
Because of this, when you sin sexually – you sin against God’s temple. “The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
To help us further understand this point, I want to look to scripture.
The Bible tells us that our bodies are God’s temples.
We all have difficult people in our lives, yet God calls us to love them well.
To do this, make all your decisions based on what will best promote the other person’s spiritual and eternal good. These are questions we have to answer if we ever hope to live and love well.
