Being Single. Part-Three.

Right Attitude.

The Apostle Paul was very wise in this subject, some people find his letters in the New Testament of the bible difficult to understand or they feel he is being contradictory.

This is not so and far from the truth, what he is saying to us is ‘I would like you to be single, as I am, but if you fall in love do the right thing and get married. But if you choose not to get married that is fine to as long as the other side is not hurt.

Basically don’t be single or get married with a selfish heart, attitude. Do not allow sin to enter your choice.

1 Corinthians 7:32,  35-36,  Psalm 55:22.

Being Single. Part-Two.

Not when Married.

It would be wrong to think that when we are married we can try to be single, this would make the partnership of two break and that is not the will of God. God does not want to split couples up or to strain relationships, the problems of living our daily lives does enough of that already.

If you are single stay that way, unless you fall in love then you will have the condideration of getting married. With the Apostle Paul both are viable alternatives. So no matter which way you choose to go, you will still be doing the right thin.

1 Corinthians 7:11, 34.

Being Single. Part-One.

Not for Everyone.’

In todays society it is almost a dirty word to say that you want to remain single, to not be in any relationship. Everyone wants to do what they want to do, be promiscuous and one shold loose their virginity as soon as they can.

Join in the crowd is the new peer presures being placed on young people, enjoy life. But the Apostle Paul wanted the single and the widows to remain as they are and there is nothing wrong with that.

1 Corinthians 7:8, 26-28.

Spreading Out. Part-Two.

We have work to Do.

Our Testimony may not seem much to us, but to a lost world and the societies around us it is a God send. All kinds of people today around us are living in despair and darkness and many want answers to what ‘is life all about?

Jesus is the only answer and we who believe in Him should know this and want to share it with the outsiders. Witnessing ones faith is easy, we can talk about what God does for us every day in the simplest of things.

John 4:23,  Acts 26:18,  Colossians 1:6.
