Join us at Brisbane Central as we continue our current series, One Anothering. This week Pastor Neli talks about the theme of singleness within the context of relationships and Christianity. You can move beyond the idea that marriage guarantees happiness and fulfilment. We should shift our focus towards prioritising the Kingdom of God and righteousness, as not everyone is destined for marriage. You can embrace singleness as a valid and meaningful path. Are you fulfilled in Christ and are earnestly seeking Him in what season you are in?
I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord. – 1 Corinthians 7:32-35 (ESV)
