Celebrating Singleness


Celebrating Singleness

Few things can bring more joy than a good marriage. A marriage partner can be one of God’s greatest blessing. But what if God is calling us to something else? What if God is calling us to singleness?

For many, singleness is a result of not finding a spouse or perhaps the result of losing one. But what if God wants us to actually choose singleness? What if God wants singleness to be a choice rather than a consequence?

In this message, I am going to open God’s Word and share some counter-intuitive statements that Jesus makes regarding singleness and our reason to celebrate it. If you would like to come prepared, please read Matthew 19:3-12.

Celebrating Singleness - Part 2

God values singleness. And that’s good because all of us, no matter our current marital status, will be single in the future ages. Over half of us will end our days on this earth as a single person. Interestingly, one of the things that separate Christianity from other faiths is the high esteem given to the single life. Judaism, Islam and of Mormonism all call their followers to marriage. Only Christianity affirms and even encourages their followers to this status.

Nowhere in the Christian Scriptures is this subject covered more thoroughly than in 1 Corinthians 7, which will be our text for this message. In this passage, we will discover three primary benefits that God has for us in singleness.
