Love, Courtship and Marriage
When the physical intimacies finally give way to sex, there is nothing more for them to experience no more thrill and that usually is the beginning of problems in their relationship.
Has its roots in friendship. Brings out the best in you and the other person.
Has commitment and is respectful of the other. Emphasis is on giving. Love wants what is best for the other person. Love is willing to wait. Has a positive behavior and is unselfish selfless Recognizes faults. Controls physical contact.
Often brings approval of family. However you cannot make someone love you as love is always a choice and cannot be forced upon a person. You need to ask first whether you are the right person. Seek someone with the same faith and love for God.
Check to see if your parents approve of the person. Seek the counsel of godly people for they often can offer insights that you do not have. Do you feel peace and joy in your heart from knowing that person? If there is more than one person to choose from, pray for wisdom to decide on the best match for you. How do you know whether the person is the right person? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? This is where the issue of compatibility comes in. A man seeks to marry a woman and NOT a man and vice versa.
The draw of a woman more often lies in her soft, gentle and kind nature and demeanor than for her looks even those that is important too. Most of the time because these two questions are either never asked or the answer not followed it is disastrous. The world and our society endorses dating. Shop around, play the field.
Premarital sex is expected. You are not a real man unless you attract women and have one hanging on your arm. You're not a real woman unless you can attract a man. If anyone can find anywhere in the Word of God that dating as we understand it today is scriptural I would like to see it. It is not. That does not mean you can't meet and get to know members of the opposite sex. But for you men the Word is clear that you treat women with respect and as sisters.

You don't decide you like her and drive off to Lookout Point even if she wants to. Trust me. You don't want the girl that is willing to break her vow before God and you are doing the same. In fact, if you really love and respect her, you would never put her in a place where there could be even a hint of sexual immorality.
The devil is a lair and the accuser of the Saints. He does not care that nothing has happened between you and her. He will slander her and you if you give him the chance. A Godly husband protects his wife; a Godly man protects his sister. He does not take his sister out and then make out with her. Same goes for you women. Do you want a man who is willing to break his vow before Almighty God because he is more interested in a cop and feel?
What makes you think all his great, loving statements and vows to you are true? If you have to use your body and how far will you go to keep him around, you don't want him around.
Give both him and your insecurity the boot. If you are not to the point in your Christian walk with the Lord Jesus Christ that you have purposed to sacrifice your will and have chosen to follow His then you are not yet mature enough and the results of your self-willed actions will be disastrous for both of you. To put it bluntly, if you have not already decided to follow God's Word Christ you are in for one hell of a life, because you will reap what you sow. Both now and forever. IF you are a Christian, that means you have voluntarily chosen to be measured by a different ruler.
It's called the Word of God, not what the world thinks is right. Our society for the most part condones premarital sex. God does not; He condemns it. Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Galatians The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery.
Ephesians But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people.
Colossians Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Jude In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion.
They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. Being led by your feelings is just plain foolish. Feelings come and go, feelings change. Don Francisco sang a song that said "love is not a feeling, it's an act of the will" and that is true. Jesus did not go to the cross because He felt like it. He went because it was the Father's will; He went because He loved us. This does not mean you won't have feelings for each other but true love is not feelings alone.
It is a commitment. We as Christians are commanded to be led by the Holy Spirit, not by how we feel. Romans So that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit].
Romans For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.
Romans Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].
Romans But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you]. But if anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does not belong to Christ, is not truly a child of God].
It all begins here. If you are truly His son or His daughter you lay down your life and your desires and accept His will and His desires. This is for every area of your life. God has a plan for you that He started before the world began and it will go on for eternity. Ephesians 4 Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy consecrated and set apart for Him and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.
God created you and He knows your wants, desires and needs. He knows what is best for you no matter what you think is best for you.

Trust Him. My definition of what dating is today is "experimenting," and experiments of this nature can easily get out of control. You go looking for what your limited human understanding and flesh wants and thinks will make you happy. God knows every fiber of your being and character. He knows what you will be like one, five, ten, twenty years from now. You do not, and He knows His plan and what will make you truly happy.
There are plenty of things a brother and sister can do together to get to know each other without giving the devil a chance to accuse you. Remember, Satan is evil, not stupid. Try doing things together that advance the Gospel of Christ since that is the will of God for every Christian.
Point being for as long as you are left on earth your purpose is to reconcile the world to Christ and you do that His way by following His will.
Relationships, jobs, schooling, He knows the full plan, not you. His will is that His sons and daughters meet and form Godly relationships and Godly marriages. God is not done molding any Christian alive on earth today. We have no idea to what form He is molding us to.

If a man and a woman are called to husband and wife they will be molded together. The question is are you called to be married? God does not play the dating game. Most people find a spouse by playing a selfish form of spin the bottle and the result is broken relationships with all the hurt and pain, and that goes for the married and unmarried. The gift of sex is for married couples, that they may express in the physical the love God gave them, for each other to be shared between them and God alone.
Ecclesiastes And though a man might prevail against him who is alone, two will withstand him. A threefold cord is not quickly broken. Meeting the right person and getting married is a gift from God every bit as much as being single such as Paul's gift. When it is time to receive that gift and God knows when it is time let Him bring that person across your path that He has for you. You trust Almighty God with your eternal salvation but you can't trust Him to bring you a mate?
God says He will give you the desire of your heart. He can say that because He is the one who gave you the desire in the first place. When it is time for you men you will have to have some maturity in the Spirit of Christ for it takes that to give up yourself for her and at the same time take headship as Christ did for the Church and you will give an account for her.
What you saidhow you treated her, everything. Remember she is God's daughter and you had better believe He is watching over her.
For you women it's the same for it takes a maturity in the Spirit of Christ to submit to your husband as the Church does to Christ.
In some societies marriages are arranged by parents and in some cases Courtship was not casual, it was somewhere between steady dating. Courtship, dating and marriage. 1. 1. P D A T I N G V C T J L C 2. R M A R R I A G E F O O E 3. E E H T A L C A R E V U 4.
Jesus is perfect, your future husband will not be but you are still called to stand by him and help him, to build him up not lord over him. First I would pray that the Lord would reveal to you what it is to be a Godly husband and for you women what it is to be a Godly wife. Let Him put you through the refining fire so that you are ready to take that position. To be called to be married is to be called to an office, a ministry to each other.
Learn the responsibilities of the office.
You will have to give an account. The Word states that when you get married you "shall have trouble in the flesh" -1st Corinthians
