What was the high point of your week?

REVIEW

Song of Solomon 1:7-2:7

Key Points:

If you want to build a strong Foundation for marriage, focus on faith and friendship.

When are you ready to start dating?

1.   When you have you’re own faith

2.   When you don’t have to compromise your faith in any way to be with them

God says sex is for marriage. Everything prior to marriage is about developing friendship because in marriage the Foundation of friendship is what keeps the fire alive.

If you want to build friendship and not compromise physical boundaries when dating, spend time in public places.

He makes her feel special because:

1.   They like each other, they aren’t just using each others bodies

2.   He is spending time listening to her

3.   Her faith is not compromised

A Godly man and a Godly relationship will be very different than what you find in the world or what is considered normal.

They bring out the best in each other.  The right person should give you inner peace and bring out the best in you.

If you have to hide things it’s not good. Healthy relationships have nothing to hide and are devoid of shame.

Their focus on friendship leads to sexual desire and attraction.  If you are married and lost the fire, focus on dating again and building friendship.

Sex is great but it needs to be awakened at the right time. Enjoy it at the right time and it will add to your life but enjoy it at the wrong time and it will wreck you.

APPLY

What is the normal way to do relationships in our culture? What does our culture value in relationship?

How is this different than the Picture God’s word gives of what healthy relationship looks like?

Why is it so important to build a healthy Foundation of friendship before marriage?  How does this help you in marriage?

Jordan said the right person will bring out the best in you.  What does that look like? How do you know if someone is bringing out the best in you vs. compromising you?

If sex is good and created by God, why did He create boundaries around it? What happens when we respect those boundaries? What happens when we disregard them?
