Being lifted Up. One.

Encouraged to Persevere?

One can not say that to have faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus will make us friends of the world? We may be called to serve in the world, but we must never think that Gods ways will be tolerated by the lost!

Everyday Christians are under strains from the daily pressures of life and this can be the same wither we are married, single of celibate. At times it can become unbearable, that we give in and compromise, but thank God we can repent and ask for Jesus forgiveness and get back on track once more!

As believers we have a Spiritual armoury, not of weapons that world uses to kill each other, but to counter all those arguments, questions, jeering and rejection that the world throws at us in their attempt to undermine the power of God!

2 Corinthians 10:4-7,   Job 5:11,   Psalm 138:6,   Romans 12:2,   Philippians 2:1.

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.
