The Bible says in 2 Peter 1:3-4 “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence, by which He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire” (ESV).There is power in God’s Word – power to transform lives!It is good for dating couples to spend time reading the Bible together, but just as there are physical boundaries in dating, there necessarily are spiritual boundaries too.Think about it: when you get married and you and your sweetheart settle in at night for a couple’s devotional time where you snuggle, exchange prayer needs, read the Bible together, and then pray together (and for each other), will you want to visualize him or her having done the same intimate spiritual bonding with previous boyfriends or girlfriends?Here’s a rule of thumb: if its spiritual bonding you wouldn’t do with a friend, don’t do it with a boyfriend or girlfriend.I love my friends, but I’m sure I won’t find myself cuddling with them at night and reading a couple’s devotional on the Song of Solomon (whoa… On the flip side, I doubt you would be upset visualizing your sweetheart having read the book of James with a classmate (guy or girl) in a public library or café for the purpose of studying God’s Word and not emotionally connecting.So, under what circumstance is it appropriate to read the Bible with a boyfriend or girlfriend? Reading the Bible together sounds like it would be the safest activity in the world, but don’t be fooled. empty house, secluded room of a building, etc.) while dating can invite unnecessary temptation into your relationship.Remember, no matter how much you fill your mind with God’s Word, you are still a young person with hormones, and he or she is also a young person with hormones.
With the above being written, I’d recommend reading together during the day.Nighttime, even if you aren’t physically together, has a different feel to it.I can still remember talking on the phone late into the night and those conversations in the darkness were often more open and heavy.I probably told a lot of secrets about myself during those hours that would have been better left unsaid.
