There is a reason for that

Dating tips christian teenagers

My fear is that many single Christians think about dating, relationships, and marriage just like the world. As I taught this passage I made applications to teenage dating and relationships.

You both feel the attraction building up. But, the authority of Christ needs to take precedence over your physical drives. This is why kissing always lead to more intense kissing. Their dating lives often hinders the mission God has called them to do. Many Christian teenagers are known more for who they date than for their love for Jesus.

You place yourself

As a result many teenagers go from boy to boy looking for something that only Christ can give. Teenagers who are sexually charged with hormones as it is, put themselves at risk when they pair off and isolate each other. You are subject to parental authority. However, here are my reasons.

Rather than spending their evening in prayer with the Lord, the spend it texting their girl friend. Dating handle wrongly can hinder your witness as a missionary. This is another good topic to get advice from your pastor on.

Christian Teenagers are missionaries. From love comes self-control. Don't team up with those who are unbelievers. Your primary focus should be on your relationship with God. Their behavior outside of the church building reveals their true nature.

You place yourself into unnecessary temptation and sin. It is like playing with fire. We live in a culture that idolizes romance.

As a result, we can be deceived to idol worship if we are not careful. Teenage dating is unwise because it can damage you when you refuse to guard your heart and find your identity in Christ. This passage describes a distinction between the people of God and the unbeliever. Dating is a very new practice in the history of humanity.

Operate in love, not lust. There is a great failure of building our thinking about dating on the Word of God.
