Ten Things Every Single Person Should Do- Part One

Ten Things Every Single Person Should Do- Part One

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 7:1-40

Reflection.

Friends, welcome! Although the subject of today’s discussion seems to be geared toward singles or those who are not married, you would be surprised to learn that married people can also benefit from this teaching. Before getting married, I learned this while still single, and I figured it was something worth sharing because it was a well-known American preacher by the name of “Bishop T.D Jakes.”

Ten Things Every Single Person Should Do!

1- Deeping Your Relationship with God:

Deep is the “Colloquialism” for weird in Christianity. Many Christians choose to act deeply without going deeper in the relationship as God desires. Relationship is the focus of Deep in Relationship. It takes “Honesty,” or opening to God and being honest, for you to have a close relationship with Him. A close relationship with God will make it easier for you to connect with others.

The majority of single people don’t have this experience and discover after marriage that they erred by not having it with their kids, spouse, etc. It turns into a relationship based on performance. You must first have a deep relationship with God as an individual before entering a deep relationship with another person because there is no relationship that is permanently high or low; relationships fluctuate.

A deeper relationship also entails letting God into every area of your life. For instance, close your eyes for a moment and visualize your heart as a large house with numerous rooms. There are some specific rooms or rooms you wouldn’t allow anyone to enter because they are private, but you could allow people to enter nearly all the rooms and living rooms as well. God is now telling you that if you want to have a close relationship with him, you must let him into those rooms because nobody else can clean them; only He can. No matter how messy your rooms may be, God wants to clean them up; all you need to do is be open and honest in what I would call “real prayers”—they show a lot.

By developing your relationship with God, you can better understand what relationships entail and prevent emotional breakdowns when new people enter your life and have children. When you are single, your relationship with God must be twice as strong as when you are married. According to the Bible in 1 Corinthians 7:32-33- “32I should like you to be free of anxieties. An unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord. 33But a married man is anxious about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, 34and he is divided.”

2- Seek a Whole Life as a Single Person:

Because you are whole as a single person, you don’t need two half-people to complete your married life. Don’t rely on other people to motivate you to seek out and pursue God’s kingdom. You can’t carry someone forever, no matter how strong you are. You can serve God however you want; you are not being held hostage. Do you tell yourself that you are attractive if no one else compliments you on it? God gives you a gift every day, so you must strive to live a full life as a single person.

3- Develop Interest Beyond Work, Home, School, and Church:

It’s okay to be interested in everything of this but go beyond it. Consider additional ways you could stand out. Go out and do something you enjoy; don’t just sit inside all day. Enroll in a swimming class, learn something new, or simply pursue an interest. You could even try something new to eat because time is too valuable to spend it sitting around waiting. I mean, I’ve heard a lot of single people go to work and then wait at home. They say they are in waiting mode when you ask them, they say. Schedule a task, eat whatever you want, visit, and feel free.

So far today, we’ve discovered three new things. Please join me tomorrow for additional recommendations for single people.

Prayer.

I’m grateful for these lessons, O Dear Lord. I ask that we rekindle our commitment to growing closer to you. Amen. I pray that all the single people who read this will be given the inspiration to deepen their relationship with you before they date anyone else.

Please share……….
