In Your Singleness . . .


1.   Do not seek out a mate. (1 Corinthians 7:27)

·        Don’t rush into a relationship; rather find your identity in Christ as a son or daughter of God.


2.   Fully devote yourself to faithfully make much of Jesus for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 7:32, 34-35)


3.   Daily surrender yourself to God’s plan rather than seeking to implement your plan. 


4.   If you’ve never been married, humbly acceptyour singleness as God’s gift. (1 Corinthians 7:7)


What You Need to Know Before You Marry . . .


1.   Don’t invest in dating if you are not prepared to marry.


2.   Marriage is a gift from God.  (1 Corinthians 7:7)


3.   Cohabitation is not God’s pre-marital plan.

o   Commit yourselves to purity.


4.   Because marriages are for reflecting the glory of God and displaying the gospel of Christ, it is imperative that your future mate is a follower of Christ.

5.   Marriage is for life.
