Jesus says “If you love me keep my commandments” John 14:15. Because I love Jesus I will do as He asks. The 10 commandments will not save me, but they are important because they show me how to love God and people, and what sin is.
Commandment # 4
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Exodus 20: 8-11
Jesus said “remember” because He knew we would forget. He “hallowed” the Sabbath day which means it is a holy day, a day unlike other days. It is not a day for doing our usual labor but a day to rest from our usual labor and spend the day with Him. God knew we humans would have a hard time not working. Some of us work 7 days a week, but for what? Things that rot and perish? Let’s get our priorities straight and spend rest time with God.
Sometimes we single people experience the loneliness of being alone and the feeling that our life is a waste because we are unmarried. We long for human companionship and we may not live up to our potential because we are waiting for someone else to give meaning to our lives.
Truly living is making the most of the life you have today. If you are single, it means enjoying your singleness today. There are no guarantees that tomorrow will bring a companion, and the mature person will accept and flourish in the environment they are in today.
Don't waste your life, learn to enjoy being single. Instead of sitting at home alone, get involved in community projects that help people. This will open doors for you to reach your true potential and will give fulfillment. Making others happy will make you happy.
To ease loneliness, find a social group to join and be friendly. Our friendship group is a great place to start. It has people who are adjusting to the single life and enjoying it.
Jesus is single too!
Struggling with sexual sins?
This is a common problem among singles. Click on this file for an article that may help you.
Singles, Jesus must come first in your life! Don't put finding a marriage partner or a high paying job above Jesus. Without Jesus in your marriage your relationship could be like war. Without Jesus as your job coach you risk not having the wisdom to pick the best job. Jesus knows your needs, He knows what you want. Trust Him to supply your needs by talking to Him about your desires and reading the Bible, His Word, to learn about the life Jesus wants you to live.
