Biblical Man- & Womanhood – Singleness (1)

Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: “Singleness” – 1 Corinthians 7:1-9

  1. Some have a gift for singleness. (“gift of self-control”)
  2. Some don’t have the gift of self-control, but they’re still single. (“gift of suffering”)
  3. Principles for moving from singleness to marriage:
  • Before you are concerned about who you should marry, you should be concerned about who you are.
  • Know what you are looking for.
  • Know what you are getting into.
  • Seek a spouse in a community of brothers and sisters.
  • Seek a spouse in the context of authority with the guidance of wise people.
  • Seek a spouse with an eye to compatibility (e.g. only Christians, theological
    agreement, mutual attraction)
  • Seeking must happen in the context of purity.
