In relationship, it is what we sow that we reap; if we sow in the flesh, we reap in the flesh and if we sow in the spirit we reap in the spirit. Have you ever wondered why most believers have an ungodly relationship with the opposite sex? This is as a result of their heart not aligning with the will of God in opposite sex relationship. Their discussions and actions don't even reflect the image of God which they are. They don't allow God to be at the centre of their relationship; their desires are.

The following are some  scriptures that have been helping me build a healthy relationship with the opposite sex, my feelings not withstanding. I know these are  not all the scriptures there is to this topic, you can please share yours with us in the comment box.


Here they are:

1. “Do not sharply censure or rebuke an older man, but entreat and plead with him as [you would with] a father. Treat younger men like brothers; [Treat] older women like mothers [and] younger women like sisters, in all purity”(1 Timothy 5:1-2, AMP).

2. “Let no one despise or think less of you because of your youth, but be an example (pattern) for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity”(1 Timothy 4:12, AMP).

3. ”Shun youthful lusts and flee from them, and aim at and pursue righteousness (all that is virtuous and good, right living, conformity to the will of God in thought, word, and deed); [and aim at and pursue] faith, love, [and] peace (harmony and concord with others) in fellowship with all [Christians], who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart”(1 Timothy 2:22, AMP).

4. “Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own. You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body”(1 Corinthians 6:19-20, AMP).

5. “1 My son, keep my words; lay up within you my commandments [for use when needed] and treasure them. 2 Keep my commandments and live, and keep my law and teaching as the apple (the pupil) of your eye. 3 Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart. 4 Say to skillful and godly Wisdom, You are my sister, and regard understanding or insight as your intimate friend— 5 That they may keep you from the loose woman, from the adventuress who flatters with and makes smooth her words. 6 For at the window of my house I looked out through my lattice. 7 And among the simple (empty-headed and emptyhearted) ones, I perceived among the youths a young man void of good sense, 8 Sauntering through the street near the [loose woman’s] corner; and he went the way to her house. 9 In the twilight, in the evening; night black and dense was falling [over the young man’s life]. 10 And behold, there met him a woman, dressed as a harlot and sly and cunning of heart. 11 She is turbulent and willful; her feet stay not in her house; 12 Now in the streets, now in the marketplaces, she sets her ambush at every corner. 13 So she caught him and kissed him and with impudent face she said to him, 14 Sacrifices of peace offerings were due from me; this day I paid my vows. 15 So I came forth to meet you [that you might share with me the feast from my offering]; diligently I sought your face, and I have found you. 16  have spread my couch with rugs and cushions of tapestry, with striped sheets of fine linen of Egypt. 17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 18 Come, let us take our fill of love until morning; let us console and delight ourselves with love. 19 For the man is not at home; he is gone on a long journey; 20 He has taken a bag of money with him and will come home at the day appointed [at the full moon]. 21 With much justifying and enticing argument she persuades him, with the allurements of her lips she leads him [to overcome his conscience and his fears] and forces him along. 22 Suddenly he [yields and] follows her reluctantly like an ox moving to the slaughter, like one in fetters going to the correction [to be given] to a fool or like a dog enticed by food to the muzzle.
23 Till a dart [of passion] pierces and inflames his vitals; then like a bird fluttering straight into the net [he hastens], not knowing that it will cost him his life. 24 Listen to me now therefore, O you sons, and be attentive to the words of my mouth. 25 Let not your heart incline toward her ways, do not stray into her paths. 26 For she has cast down many wounded; indeed, all her slain are a mighty host. 27 Her house is the way to Sheol (Hades, the place of the dead), going down to the chambers of death”(Proverbs 7:1-27, AMP).


The prove that you fear God is your desire to do His word - your feeling and desires are subject to His will.

6. "I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or by the hinds of the field that you stir not up nor awaken love until it pleases" (Song of Solomon 3:5, AMP).

7. “How shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed and keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to it]. With my whole heart have I sought You, inquiring for and of You and yearning for You; Oh, let me not wander or step aside [either in ignorance or willfully] from Your commandments. Your word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You”(Psalm 119:9-11, AMP).

8. “And have clothed yourselves with the new [spiritual self], which is [ever in the process of being] renewed and remolded into [fuller and more perfect knowledge upon] knowledge after the image (the likeness) of Him Who created it”(Colossians 3:10, AMP).

9. ”Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper]. Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven you, so must you also [forgive]. And above all these [put on] love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness [which binds everything together completely in ideal harmony]” (Colossians 3:12-14).

These scriptures when meditated on,  prayed with and we submitting to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit will empower us to fulfill God's will in our relationship with everyone opposite sex especially.


You can't say you love God and you are not expressing His love to others.

Do have a great day.

If you don't have a relationship with the Lord you can do that now, He is the only guarantee of the abundant supply of love, joy and peace  in your relationship.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ and experience His love for you by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen.

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
