The heart of her husband trusts

If you can remain single and be devoted to the Lord in purity, do it. Also, seek the counsel of those who know you well, especially your parents. Paul mentions at least two advantages for the person who is gifted to remain single. For her worth is far above jewels.

If you want to guard your moral purity, plan not to get yourself into tempting situations. While God accomplished much good through these dedicated men, their families suffered great harm.

If you do marry, it should not be for the purpose of self-centered fulfillment and personal happiness. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. Any strong opposition from parents should be weighed very carefully.

But our ever-changing culture faces challenges due to sin. You can use your time as a single person to sit around feeling depressed and lonely.

Wagner says that while he spends time with his family, Stott is writing another book or planning another conference or traveling to another country. Our focus should be on the Lord and His kingdom. It might be healing or a home. You should be able to accept the person as he or she is, without major remodeling. Every Christian can be pure in thought and deed.

If you do marry it

We all know that the bottom line is that Christians must only marry Christians. Apparently, in reaction to the sensuality of the culture, some in the church were saying that all sex is wrong. Then joyfully serve Him together. Many Christians put pressure on singles, especially those getting along in years, to get married.

You know firsthand that single men face unique spiritual and moral struggles. If you are single and find that fighting sexual temptation is a daily, constant battle, then you need to pursue marriage.

This is perhaps a word that needs to be spoken more often in our day. Since the singles among us have had to listen to me talk about the family for the past couple of months, I thought we owed them a message that addresses many of their more direct concerns. In one of his books, Peter Wagner mentions that John Stott, the well-known British pastor and author, is single.
