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 # 2
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.” Exodus 20: 4-6
One of our single men used to have a picture of Jesus that he loved. In the morning he would kiss the picture and say “Good morning, Jesus” or “I love you.” One day he was convicted that this artist’s drawing of Jesus really wasn’t Jesus. He quickly shoved the picture in his Bible dictionary and was amazed when he later opened the dictionary and saw where the picture had landed….right next to the word “idol.”
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!

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.
