What Does Intimacy Look Like in a Christian Relationship?


Intimacy in a Christian relationship

In a world where intimacy often gets tangled up with physicality, exploring what this concept truly embodies in a Christian relationship is refreshing and essential. Intimacy, in its purest sense, is about connection, understanding, and deep emotional bonding. It's the glue that holds relationships together through thick and thin. But how do you cultivate intimacy while staying true to your Christian dating values?


Spiritual Connection

At the heart of a Christian relationship is a shared love for God. This spiritual connection is the foundation for building every aspect of your relationship. It's about praying together, discussing scripture, and encouraging each other in faith.


Emotional Bonding

Intimacy is also about being vulnerable with one another. It involves sharing your hopes, fears, dreams, and failures. It's about being there for each other, offering support, and understanding without judgment. Proverbs 17:17 says, "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity." Being that type of friend in a relationship creates a deep emotional connection that is both comforting and empowering.


Intellectual Sharing

Never underestimate the power of intellectual intimacy. It's about respecting each other's opinions, having meaningful conversations, and exploring new ideas together. By challenging and stimulating each other's thoughts, you grow individually and as a couple. Proverbs 27:17, which says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another," embodies this beautifully. Your relationship should be a space where both of you feel encouraged to learn and evolve.


Physical Affection

Yes, physical intimacy is also a part of the equation, but within the boundaries set by your faith. It's about showing affection in ways that honor God and your relationship. Song of Songs 8:4 warns not to "awaken love until it so desires," reminding us to respect the sacredness of physical intimacy and reserve it for marriage. Until then, finding appropriate ways to express love and affection is super important in maintaining closeness.


The Journey Together

Building intimacy in a Christian relationship is a beautiful, ongoing process. It's about continually seeking ways to connect on a deeper level across all facets of your relationship. Remember, intimacy is not just a destination; it's a journey you embark on together, hand in hand, with God leading the way. By fostering spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical connections within the context of your faith, you create a bond that is not only strong and fulfilling but also pleasing to God.

Many people will justify their action, many Christian’s will laugh at you for wanting to abstain from sex as an adult. I had a Xhristain friend tell me he didn’t want to have sex , but every time he was with his gf they had sex , my advice was “ if you don’t want to have sex, then don’t put your penis in her virgina. If you are to weak , then just don’t have a relationship

Have you even tried it? I’ve been using it for awhile and it’s the exact same access you’ll find on Tinder. So you can still swipe and match and chat for free. Now of course if you want to see who likes you, then yeah you have to pay. Just like Tinder.
