(I am always assuming that you and the guy you are dating/courting are both fully committed to Christ as Lord of  everything in your lives. There should be fruit from God’s Spirit in both of your lives (Galatians 5:22-23). There should be nothing that either of you are putting above Christ in your hearts. You […]
