All of you, slave and free both, were once held hostage in a sinful society.
Then a huge sum was paid out for your ransom(Thank you Jesus).
So please don’t, out of old habit, slip back into being or doing what everyone else tells you.
Friends, stay where you were called to be.
Hold the high ground with him at your side.
The Master did not give explicit direction regarding virgins, but as one much experienced in the mercy of the Master and loyal to him all the way, you can trust my counsel.
Because of the current pressures on us from all sides, I think it would probably be best to stay just as you are.
Are you married? Stay married.
Are you unmarried? Don’t get married.
But there is certainly no sin in getting married, whether you are a virgin or not. (So please, especially for non-virgins, you are not less deserving of marriage simply because of the past)
All I am saying is that when you marry, you take on additional stress in an already stressful time, and I want to spare you if possible.
I do want to point out, friends, that time is of essence.
There is no time to waste, so don’t complicate your lives unnecessarily.
Keep it simple – in marriage, grief, joy, whatever.
Even in ordinary things – your daily routines of shopping, and so on.
Deal as sparingly as possible with the things the world thrusts on you.
This world as you see it is on its way out 🌪☄️🌊
