Making Peace With the Single Life - Bible Study


Singles embrace the biblical truth found in Genesis 2:18: “The LORD God said, ‘It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’” At the same time they recognize some are destined to remain celibate for the kingdom’s sake (Matthew 19:12). Most singles are living somewhere in between. Are we supposed to suppress our desire for marriage? Or, should it fuel our efforts to find a spouse? What about wholeheartedly committing to living alone for God? This study addresses these questions as singles seek God’s will for their lives.
