The Biblical Boundaries Series
Establishing strong, Biblical boundaries is one of the hardest, yet most important things for a betrayed wife to do. Unfortunately, it’s a task that leaves most of us wondering where and how to even start. Many of us have spent our lives believing that unconditional love looks different than the Bible actually describes it. But God sets strong boundaries with us, and He makes it clear in Scripture that we are to do the same in our relationships.
As followers of Christ, our goal is to become like Him. For that reason, there is much we can learn about what healthy boundaries look like based simply on how He makes boundaries with us. Here are 5 principles we can learn by observing His example in Scripture.
Building on the five principles we learned in the previous post, we’ll continue to look to the boundaries God enacts throughout the pages of Scripture in order to better understand what healthy boundaries look like.
We’ve been spending some time learning about Biblical boundaries. We’ve already defined and laid out some Biblical principles surrounding the establishment of good, healthy boundaries. In this post we ask, what’s a boundary rule, and what does the Bible say about setting them?
It’s time to take what we’ve learned and figure out how to practically apply it. We’re answering the question, “How do I actually set Biblical boundaries?” It’s time to come up with a strategy for laying out our borders, building our fences, and installing our gates.
We’re going to wrap this series up with a quick reminder of who’s in control. What it’s so easy to forget in the midst of all the chaos of life is that being obedient to God in this area (really in any area) allows us to step out of the way and Him to do His work. Setting good, Biblical boundaries puts God in control!
