Christian dating long distance relationships
What advice would you have about dating online and long distance relationships?The development of any relationship is challenging – but long distance does add some unique aspects to consideration. Only you can make this choice but I would speak favorably of the consideration.One Lord, one faith, one baptism — and a billion different dating tips.The first rule in dating is the first rule in all of life: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark ).
Each of you should be genuinely seeking Him – separately and together. Allow me to provide some further counsel from my experience and in relating to many Christian singles. You must decide before you go on the date what your limits will be. It’s too difficult to think when passion overtakes you. You can resist temptation if you put on the whole armor of God (Eph. If you find yourself or the other person moving quickly into ‘I love you’ or the topic of marriage comes up in the first couple of months of dating – you are moving too fast!!!
I earnestly believe that no one can know all that they need to know about another to make this choice at such an early stage.You will not truly love anyone else if you do not love God first and most.And no one will truly love you if they do not love God more than they love you. If you are dating someone who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Christ, you are playing with fire. Don’t let the relationship progress to a physical point and then hope you can cut it off later. You need all the help you can get in today’s world. Do you depend on Him to meet your needs of love and security?
