Spiritual growth requires more than external change, it requires internal transformation. Some of the Christians in Corinth were telling single people it was a sin to get married. This created a challenge for engaged people – should they break off their commitment or follow through and get married? In our passage, we read how this anti-marriage teaching was so wrong – our spiritual life is not built on our marital status, but upon our devotion to Jesus Christ. Today we will see how to get more spiritually focused by looking at some differences between marriage and singleness. The key point of our passage is that we need to do all we can to keep our focus on the Lord.
