Non believers date for fun, for the moment, for a good time, for sex, to not be lonely, to impress people, etc. For men this is one of the things that tells you if you’re ready to seek your wife. If you don’t think that you are going to marry this person and if you don’t feel like God has possibly brought this person into your life for marriage, then stop wasting each other’s time. Have faith and love, and enjoy the companionship of those who love the Lord and have pure hearts." It is unwise to date someone who doesn't love God. "Don't be teamed with those who do not love the Lord, for what do the people of God have in common with the people of sin? And what harmony can there be between Christ and the devil?How can a Christian be a partner with one who doesn't believe?There was a time when I wouldn't admit what a sinner I was.But my dishonesty made me miserable and filled my days with frustration. My strength evaporated like water on a sunny day until I finally admitted all my sins to You and stopped trying to hide them. Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come. She makes and sells linen garments; she delivers belts to the merchants.
Nor will you find anything about courtship, but we do have biblical principles to help you when seeking a Christian relationship. Marriage is probably the greatest tool in the sanctification process of a believer’s life. When you hear about Christians living in sexual sin they are false converts and not truly saved. If you get into a relationship with an ungodly person they will slow you down. God will replace the person He has taken away with someone better. You must keep your eyes on Christ and pray for His peace and comfort when you are single because you will kill yourself if you are constantly thinking about it. Sometimes God uses singleness to drive you in prayer. However, a woman should be careful to guard a man’s heart as well. Christian men and women are guilty of playing around with the opposite sex until they feel that they are ready to get into a relationship with that person. It is damaging to show interest in a woman, pursue her for a while, and then pull back.
Her husband is known at the city gates, where he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes her own bed coverings; her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Two sinful people are united into one and they commit to each other in everything. Run to Christ and whoever is keeping up with you introduce yourself. You will start saying, “maybe I’m too this, maybe I’m too that, maybe I need to start looking like this, maybe I need to buy that.” That is idolatry and of the devil. He wants you to keep on knocking and one day He is going to say, “enough, you want it? If she grows feelings for you she is going to be hurt if you decide that you never really liked her.
It shows how Christ loved the church and laid down His life for her. No one besides the Lord will come before the person you are going to marry. You have to say no to everyone else when it comes to your spouse. Do you listen to His conviction or do you do what you want to do? Not only are you to lead each other by the way you live your life, but you have to worship together. Never entertain a relationship just to have something in the meantime.
