He will be faithful to forgive us (1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness).
A quick personal note – I’ve made the mistake in my past, years ago, of moving in with my girlfriend and justifying it because we got a 2 bedroom place, and it saved us money because of bills including rent.
Jesus is the bride-groom, and the Church is His bride.
The unique, committed setting of marriage is also the place God designed for the expression of sex.
In the midst of living together, you are also opening the door to even more temptation between you two, and hurting any testimony you may have of following Christ as you proclaim that it is a God glorifying thing to live together before marriage.
You are also in danger of leading others down a similar path towards sin because of your example (Romans -22).
Let me also encourage you if you had this situation in the past, that you are forgiven in Jesus Christ.
Living together before marriage doesn’t reflect the commitment that God instituted and ordained. He wants to have a relationship with us, and no situation or sin is too great for Him to forgive.
The good news is that it is never too late to make a change. If we want His forgiveness, we must stop committing the sinful act (1 John 3:6 – No one who abides in Him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen Him or known Him) and ask God for forgiveness.
Given that the idea of non-sexual “shacking up” is a relative novelty, we should certainly reexamine the issue taking into account this new perspective.
Does the lack of sexual intimacy shed new light that such behavior is appropriate from the perspective of Scripture?
