“The single man or woman of God can hear His direction and immediately act on it, without having to ask someone else’s opinion or permissions.”
Portrait of the Servant-Hearted Single: (An excerpt)
“The servant-hearted single has perhaps the best opportunity for ministry available to all of mankind! This man or woman of God can freely come and go, worship openly and unabated and can devote to God all of their attention!
The Apostle Paul wrote,
Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to marry. But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. I wish that all men were as I am. But each man has his own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that. Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. 1 Cor. 7 NIV
The servant-hearted single can come and go as they please, seeking to serve God and humanity while listening to Him with open ears. They can hear His direction and immediately act on it, without having to ask someone else’s opinion or permissions. A servant-hearted single can be diligently submitted to God and His will for their lives, as long as they take the time and discipline required to be still and know that He is God. (Psalm 46:10) A servant-hearted single can become expert in the art of; listen, pray and obey. “
