1 Corinthians 7 tells us that the single life is a unique gift from God, and many Christians should thoughtfully embrace singleness as the best way for them to glorify God in this short life we’ve been given.
Being in Christ means that we’ve been given a whole new definition of “work.” Work is no longer a thing we have to do to pay the bills. Instead, we have this new category, “good works” which are to fill up our whole life.
Jesus, being fully God and fully man, is the only person who can be the main character of the Bible. He does what men should have done but failed to do, and He does what only God can do. From first to last, He holds the centre stage.
