My pastor of preaching, Ryan Fullerton, recently went through the topic of singleness in his Sunday morning preaching. We as a church have been going through 1 Corinthians on Sunday mornings. Recently Ryan went through 1 Corinthians 7. Because of the number of single people in our church Ryan took the time to do a mini-series on God’s vision for singles.

I have heard and read a lot of things on singleness. Some of it was good and some of it was bad. It seems like every generation of the church has to figure out what to do with the singles. There is either the tendency to drift to longing for singles to stay single and do kingdom works or, in the generation I am in, to push them toward marriage. Things are “spiritually” romanticized to where the perfect match is suppose to fall into your lap or their is so much push that the idea is communicated that one can drive any relationship to a marriage with enough initiation. People run to courtship for the answer. Others run to dating.  Suffice to say that there is a lot of rocking on this ship.

Ryan, however, did a superb job digging into the text and construction a biblical vision of singleness. On a ship that is being tossed to a fro much balance was given in these messages. I would commend theses messages to you. If you take time to listen to them you will not be disappointed.
