And trust me sisters, I have BEEN there & DONE all that.
I’m not very emotional, but that night there was a steady stream of joyous tears signaling I was finally free!Most of my Christian buddies had girlfriends, and certainly all my fraternity brothers did. I carried this heavy load of rationalization around with me through the fall semester.She and I finally got enough courage to bring up the subject, talk and make a decision.I've been working in youth ministry in some capacity for roughly eight years, and this is one of the most common questions I've fielded from young Christians: “How can (insert boyfriend/girlfriend) and I have a Christian dating relationship? ” As often I've heard it, I still love the the heart behind the question.A couple of youngins' get to dating, and they want to “do it right.” They realize that God is concerned with every aspect of our lives, including our romantic involvements, so they've resolved to have a “Christian” dating relationship and sought guidance. Should we buy a devotional and go through it together? ” If the young man's of a theological bent, he shows up with a potential 10-week preaching series already outlined. As I already mentioned, couples often get this idea that to be truly “spiritual” they should start interweaving their spiritual lives into one.
