New Testament In a Year: August 24 – 1 Corinthians 7:20-40


1 Corinthians 7:20-40
(20-24) The state in which one is converted and called to Christ is the state in which they should remain and serve Christ. If one comes to Christ while as a slave in the sex trafficking industry or as a free person in the suburbs, as a married person or as a single person, as a circumcised person or as an uncircumcised person, God is able to save them all just the same. He is able to work in their lives no matter where they are or what they have done when they come to know Him as Savior.

(25-40) The Unmarried and the Widowed
Paul points out that those who choose to remain single are better able to focus on the things of God, while those who are married have to focus on their spouse and/or children. In whatever case we may find ourselves, however, we can live lives that are pleasing to God.

Favorite verse: (23) You were bought with a price; do not become bondservants of men.
