Jesus and Paul were on the same page, in essence, that marriage is permanent; therefore, marriage is only for those who can handle it. Jesus' words about being able to live alone as a single person implies that this is a "gift".
But He said to them, "All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given". I must say, if it hadn't been for my loving wife, I wouldn't be the man and husband I am today. I am living proof of the King's Word working to change your life to the individual you are to be. Please note you do not have to remain unmarried in order to minister and preach the Kingdom. Read what Jesus stated: 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".
But men, if you are married, never deprive your spouse of her necessary needs; for it is love, affection, embracing and intimacy that is part of securing your marriage. Now, having said that, marriage in God’s context means making choices when you do not feel like it. True love is not a feeling, it is a choice, it is a choice and a decision. Paul stated it this way in God's Constitution: "Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of control".
This is why it is so important to keep reading and studying the Word of King Jesus. Remember what Isaiah stated concerning the state of mind on Him. You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You. Because he trusts in You.
