1 Corinthians 7- Called To Peace

I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:8-11

As we continue to look at Pauls teachings here, it’s important to understand the core of the message. Paul as the shepherd of this Church is addressing the issue of sexual immorality in the Church. So one of Pauls suggestions is , if you can’t control your sexual desires you should get married.

Paul is not making a commandment to get married, as Paul addresses here “to the unmarried and widows” there are situations where Christians are not going to be married for several reasons, we don’t need to address all of them. As Paul says here “but if they cannot contain, let them marry” Meaning if you can’t control your sexual desires , you really should get married

As brother John said in our Twitter group “Many people want today’s Church like the 1rst century Church” well in many ways it is, sexual immorality was a big issue in the 1rst century Church as it’s still a big issue in todays Church. So much of an issue, many denominations are splitting over sexual immorality. The battle of the flesh is severe , and we need to deny ourselves daily to continue this Christian walk

But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? 1 Corinthians 12-16

The Apostle Paul brings up another scenario that is still prevalent in todays Church, a Christian who is married to a non-believer. This is obviously a very difficult situation for everyone involved, this is why the Church is so important in your life. Many people need to lean on their brothers and sisters in Christ for fellowship and comfort, when they can’t receive it at home. This again was an issue in the first century just as its an issue in today Church today

Reflecting on these words by Paul “God has called us to peace” don’t allow this situation to destroy your family. Be patient and pray for your spouse that the Holy Spirit will remove the veil in Jesus name Amen!
