Christian dating affection
“Every rung represents a new physical act you share in a relationship. The higher you climb, the more physically satisfying and intimate the experience will become.However, with each step of the ladder, it becomes increasingly more dangerous.” Rungs 1-4, Illian explains, represent activities that are permissible and can be beneficial—holding hands, hugging and cuddling, kissing, French kissing.
There is a difference between desiring your sweetheart and lusting after him or her.
If you are experiencing a sexual response to your closeness with each other, you need to set your physical limits more broadly.
If you find that you and your sweetie are struggling in this area (and if you are, you are in good company – many are), find a faithful friend, pastor, or mentor to hold you accountable.
It is for your good and for your future spouse’s good (even though it may not seem so now).
The worlds of dating and Christianity can be two difficult worlds to merge. Even couples who take responsibility for their actions and trust God to help them stay pure want to know when they’re crossing the line.
God knows what you are going through and He is pleased when you seek to honor Him.
