He knew us all in Adam. He pulled Eve out and Adam was delighted. Everyone has a mate. The kingdom of heaven was designed that way. There's no marrying in heaven. We're already paired up and perfectly fit together from everlasting to everlasting. Adam and Eve, Joseph and Mary, Keith and Melody, the apostle Paul and whoever his wife is, etc.,etc.,etc. It's about redemption. We are male and we are female. We will never be angels. Marriage is forever. Sex is forever. May everyone have sex only with their mates. Thank you Jesus! But God knows it is indeed a wicked and adulterous, end time mess of an apostate church-world in which we live.

Praise God for your life, Keith! This is timely for me. You are a blessing!

Carolyn (Guest) (09/24/2011 22:53) I am a divorced woman who was in an abusive relationship. Although some Christians told me that I was free to remarry, and they used scripture to say that my husband abandoned me when he didn't love and cherish me, I sought God's will and felt strongly that the Lord wanted me to remain single. This was after attempted reconciliation that failed. And I use 1 Cor 7:10-11: "To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband)..."
I am able to serve the Lord in ways I would not do if I was married. A big challenge is being wary of single Christian men, many of whom think that it is acceptable to date and marry after divorce. I have to be very careful to limit social contacts with men for fear they will be attracted to me... this is difficult sometimes when the joy and freedom of the Lord are bubbling out of me, making me friendly and smiling to my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Part of the 'trouble' I think Paul was trying to prevent was the trouble that remarriages bring as well. I grew up with a stepfather, both my mother and he were widowed, so they had the legitimate freedom to remarry, however, it took a lot of work to try to mesh these parents and children together, and it many times dind't work, there was certainly trouble because of this combination. I'm not saying it is wrong to re-marry after a spouse dies, but the new spouse will never be able to measure up to the memories of the former, if a person is trying to replace that lost love. And in my case, the children also were trying to replace the lost parent, whic is impossible but children don't realize this so they get hurt.
The main thing is to seek the Lord's will and then follow where He leads, it will lead to blessings, we know!

When you get over 20 the world tells you its time to get married, settle down and have a nice life. Subconsciously this so invades our mind and entire lives. We need our Heavenly Father to daily remind us that our citizenship and life is not in this earthly world. This is almost like virtual reality, we are not to get tangled up in civilian life, because we are ambassadors sent by the King from another world! I feel like God has showed me its His will that I will get married but God will do this in His time. Our lives and purpose on this earth lose focus when we start looking at ourselves and thinking about our lives. We need to labour daily to keep our eyes focused on the mission God, seek His kingdom above all else and God's perfect plan for our lives will simply fall into place. As we seek His kingdom first, we will always be in the center of Gods will for our lives! Heavenly Father reveal this to us!

Thanks LDM to have K Green's writing on singlenes or marriage. Yes a lot of what Keith Green writes is exactly on track. I just have to implement 1 Cor 7 into my life and also rem if God will's me for marriage that I will be used by God that way and look to the successful mariages. But, as Corrie Ten Boom was single her life on earth. as a believer her husband (bridegroom ) is Jesus Christ himself. ANd that as a Christian in the Body of Christ Christ jesus is my bridegroom whom I long to serve worship be in all and prostrate before him in the heavenly sanctuary some day...We are living in the last days...Alluia Amn

i have to laugh. my aunt used to tell me she wished i'd get married and settle down. i told her, okay, you find me a good man. that shut her up.
for most of my adult life, i longed for marriage. now, at this point, i just want someone to clean my gutters and fix my car.
is that wrong?

I loved reading this and I think it is so right on to what is happening in this day and age. I hate going to single groups because I almost always feel like a piece of meat being put on display. I would like to be a part of a group whose focus is on the Lord. I have come to the point in my walk to say to God if I can serve Him better as a married person than I can single than He has the right as my Husband to send someone to marry. If I can serve Him better as a single person than I will joyfully serve Him while I wait for Him.

one thing i'd like to add to Carolyn's statement on 09/24/11 ( i know it's a little late - i'm new here.):)For the folk that like me are divorced and wondering if they are doomed to a lonely life after reading her article, i want to say this. If you were married to an unbeliever and they wanted to leave, you are not bound. Paul says, that we are called to "live in peace" with everyone" and "how do you know believer if you will save the unbelieving husband/wife". If we in this case then, we are not bound, then i would say that for the believer to pray for a believing husband and re-marry, is not a sin. Shalom
