Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a feverish search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.
There should be a balance, as we remember that God is perfectly loving (Ephesians ; 1 John -18) and perfectly sovereign over every situation, desire and need (Psalm 1; Romans -39).
So here are 7 points to consider when it comes to online dating as a Christian single. It’s About Who You Date and Then Marry God isn’t concerned with how you go about meeting a prospective spouse.
It says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”At this point, I’m just trusting that God will guide me (through His Word and the wise people around me) in the direction He wants me to go. Don’t get online out of fear or a lack of trust in God. It can help differentiate the intentional from the non-intentional. By going online you will have many more potential options. Online dating sites are well known for matching guys and girls up according to personality, religion, and preferences, etc. Online dating is often for the purpose of finding your lifelong match. Seek to trust in Him with ALL of your heart and He truly will make your “relationship path” clear.There are also great Christian ministries (that I highly respect) who hold very different views.On one hand there’s Leslie Ludy who is totally against it and on the other hand we have Boundless who is very much in favor of it.We get dolled up and put on our best behavior to hopefully win an engagement proposal.Consider this: as our culture has gotten more experienced or “better” at dating, it seems we have gotten worse at marriage.
