Talk about a freedom and holy intimacy that brought to our relationship.
Or maybe you’re single and want to know how do things right when you do start to date.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but whatever season you find yourself in, here are three ways to pursue purity in a dating relationship: 1.
Once we got the revelation and agreed on the vision that “I show that I love and care about you more when I deny my flesh and chose to honor your body and the Lord” it took the physical pressure off the relationship.
The purity issue isn’t so much that you want to be sexual, it is more tied in to your need and desire to feel loved.
The truth is that you really show your boyfriend/girlfriend more love and affection by not crossing physical boundaries.
This perspective shift was a game changer for my wife and me in our dating relationship.
But purity doesn’t always need to have the most of our focus and energy. Get a New Perspective on Love If you are a physical touch person, and have the motto: “The more they touch, the more they love me,” then you need to get a new perspective on love.
If Jesus is truly front and center in the relationship, and both parties live each day to worship Him, the purity issue will often become an non-issue. The lie of the world is that you have to be physically intimate to express your love to your partner.
Have you ever started a new dating relationship with every good intention to pursue sexual purity, yet within a few weeks you cross a line you promised you never would?
