One of the things I am so challenged by when I read church history is the lengths to which people will go in service to Christ. It is truly inspiring. Some give up family. Some give up dreams of wealth. Others give up their hope of marriage to focus on God’s work in the world. The last half of 1 Corinthians 7 speaks about this final group. They give themselves to the Kingdom, remaining celibate and committed to following Jesus wherever he leads. This devotion is challenging to many of us who might find it difficult to recount one act of costliness we have endured in the name of Christ. This week’s message will be a teaching that exhorts the committed single life and calls all of us to a greater willingness to sacrificial living.
