Our life is about Jesus now — his love for us and his plans for us — whether we’re single or married, sixteen or sixty.
God has so much more in store for you than any relationship can offer.
That’s not what the Bible teaches, and it’s not what God’s design for man and woman is. There is something else to know about sexuality, and we know it from experience. Namely, one of the most powerful forces in human life is the awakening of a peculiar happiness and desire that comes from being liked by a person of the opposite sex.I have watched otherwise strong, wise, and seemingly mature Christian young people completely lose their moral bearings when they find out that they are liked — that they are attractive to an unbeliever.It’s as if every switch on the mainframe of their moral life gets turned off while one massive desire button is alive and well.I think the Bible settles the question of sexual relations for us clearly — namely, sexual relations are for marriage.Paul says in 1 Corinthians 7:2, “Because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.” In other words, sexual relations are for the marriage covenant, not for the engaged couple and not for casual dating relationships.
