Boundaries in christian dating relationships
If there’s anything that could have protected us a little more from heartbreak, it’s probably a different set of Christian dating boundaries. It’s such a broad subject, and everyone seems to have their own special interpretation of it.
Boundaries aren’t selfish, just as taking time alone to reboot isn’t selfish.Without these things, we lose ourselves and become fueled by other people.No God-chaser should want to work only for the happiness of other people – that’s a goal that turns into a dead-end in no time.Answer these questions and then talk to a spiritual leader in your life who knows you well. God has forgiven your pasts, so I am not trying to bring back guilt. (Do this separately.) But if you have a past full of sexual experiences, a long intimate hug could cause you to stumble. If this continue to happen more than 2 or 3 times, I would end it. You want to set boundaries together and you want to both constantly fight for them. But you have to both want purity and want to fight for it.If your boyfriend is following Jesus, he will want to protect your heart and purity. You can do this without sharing details of your past that don’t need to be shared yet. If one doesn’t want to fight as hard, he/she will pull down the other.
Finally, (and most importantly) ask yourself: Does this honor God? God cares about your purity and wants you to flee from temptations. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
