After spending lots of time with a person, you get to see what they value and where their heart is.Jesus says in Matthew: “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” If Jesus isn’t their everything, then you should probably reconsider the relationship.
But, the authority of Christ needs to take precedence over your physical drives. If the social, emotional, spiritual dimensions are missing or lacking, you are out of balance.
Physical touch should be in the context of a meaningful relationship, not reduced to satisfaction of personal need. Both partners should take responsibility for setting limits. 7) Is there too much physical and too little other?
Physical touch/intimacy should correspond with commitment. This doesn’t mean anything goes if you are engaged. What is your motivation -- power and control, gratifying your own ego, meeting a selfish need, or genuine affection?
If you feel convicted of certain behaviors, stop doing them.
Sadly, if a person doesn’t have the love of Jesus abiding in them, they will be filled with spiritual darkness and tension in the relationship will grow greater and greater. As cliche as it is, couples that pray together stay together and also have the most satisfying relationships!
As Christian singles and Christians in general, prayer is the single most important thing you can do. Without communion with God being a prominent part of our daily existence, we can literally accomplish nothing!
For .” This includes pleasing God and bringing Him glory with your relationship.
Praying together is an amazing way to get closer to God and closer to each other at the same time.
The more time we spend with Him, the more He conforms our character to be like His. Some people learn this right away, but many never learn it!
If you dive into a relationship thinking that a person will change their ways after being with you for a while, think again!
Deep down this is usually a case of somebody taking matters into their own hands instead of trusting and waiting on God!
