You may have said it once. “Oh I’m not dating anyone. I’m dating Jesus. (Which secretly means – I’m using Jesus as a ploy to hide the searing pain and insecurity I feel about not having a boyfriend.) Jesus is my boyfriend.”
No He’s not. Jesus isn’t your boyfriend. The boyfriends I know dating young girls are still figuring out how to treat them properly and usually like dry humping them behind closed doors. That’s not Jesus. Jesus treats girls well. Jesus does not dry hump.
Equating your relationship with Jesus to a relationship of that of a boyfriend is like saying, “Jesus is thinking of dying for me, I mean, we’ve talked about it, a little. He’s not sure he’s ready for the commitment though.”
The only symbolism that stands is Jesus as a groom. He has already committed, died for and chosen His church. You could also pull some symbolism of a Lover out of Song of Solomon and a Jealous Husband out of Hosea – but not a boyfriend.
Jesus is not your boyfriend.
