Always remember, as long as believers are physically alive they exist in two different worlds. One is material and still under the influence of the satanic world system. The other is supernatural, eternal and the real world which is under the authority of the King. Whether you intend it that way or whether you even are aware of it, you are influenced by the society, culture and traditions of this natural world in which you live as much as you are by the political, economic and educational systems.
The society in which we now live (which is of the natural world) thinks if you are single and not involved with anyone, then you are not normal. This thought has been planted in our subconscious minds from the time we were children. Most of the time people aren’t consciously aware that is how they think. In this society, pressure to get married or shack together is very much on the rise. But don’t be influenced by this world system. Seek God’s direction for your life. You can do that through prayer and constantly reading and studying the Word. Remember, singleness is the first state in which God made you, and marriage is for those who are able to carry it out in God’s context; and this is according to Jesus. For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it.”
This world system and foundation is built upon lust and self-gratification. The question is: What is God’s context? His plan and His context for marriage is most definitely permanence. Not everyone is ready for marriage, according to Jesus. The King made this statement? …He said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.”
Now can you handle that?
