Instructions to Singles on Marriage Issues

Marriage is an honourable institution that was ordained by God from the beginning of creation for companionship, perpetuation of the human race, partnership in managing God’s resources. The Bible says that he who finds a wife has found a good thing, and obtained favour from the Lord. It is the good will of the Lord that a man be joined together with His life as a symbol of Christ’s union with His saints.
In preparing for marriage, prayer is very crucial, as in other life endeavours. Our choice of a life partner is permanent, hence great care must be taken. Our close relationship with God now will be a strong measure to prevent us from straying away from the truth.
Principles of Finding a Christian Partner (*Gen. 24:1-69):
1. Take time with God. Don’t make choices in a hurry. We must commit our home and marriage unto God early enough.
2. Have a daily quiet time with God. Consistent fellowship with God free from distractions.
3. Being single can be an important time to prepare you for marriage. We have ample opportunity to prepare for the responsibilities of marriage.
4. Be careful and watchful. All that glitters is not gold. The guidance of the Holy Spirit in this area of life cannot be over-emphasized. This boils down to our close relationship with Him
5. Don’t fellowship or compromise with darkness. 1 Cor. 10:20-21
