The first step in initiating a Christian relationship is to establish intentions. It is important for the man to make his intentions clear and explain why he has started or is starting the relationship. To build a successful Christian relationship, both partners must have fully surrendered to Jesus Christ. If you are not familiar with the story of Joseph the Dreamer, it is important to note that he rejected Potiphar's wife's advances not out of fear of her husband, but out of fear of sinning against God (Genesis 3).
When it comes to dating, it is important to make sure that you know enough about the other person before progressing beyond friendship. Ask yourself questions such as: Are they Christians? Are you generally going in the same direction in life? What state does this person plan to live in? These types of questions can be answered through friendship and should be answered before dating. In a Christian relationship, kissing is not necessary to demonstrate love for your partner. It is important to remember that a spiritual imbalance can prevent the development of a healthy and godly Christian couple relationship.
A healthy Christian relationship should be everything you have ever dreamed of since you were a Christian teenager. Although it may seem difficult to build a godly Christian relationship before marriage, it is still possible. Before dating, ask yourself if you are ready to fulfill what the Bible says a Christian husband and wife should do for each other. If the answer is yes, then you are ready to start dating.
