Living single can be very tough. In today's world where morality and marriages have declined and cohabitation has increased, it becomes very hard for the single Christian to fight the fight of faith. Here are some keys that will help those struggling with their singleness.
PrayPrayer keeps you strong to stand against temptation. You will need this strength as you navigate through your single life.
"Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Matthew 16:41
Practice Self Control
"But I keep under by body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." I Corinthians 9:27
Avoid the Scene of Sin
If you are not in a position to be tempted, you cannot fail. You should avoid anything you know that would cause you to stumble. You can't bring a date to your home and listen to the late Luther Vandross. Don't be caught at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong person.
Watch What You Watch
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8
Spend Time in the Word
I know it's easier said than done, but with the help of God, all things are possible. Make your mind up today that you will conquer!
