Single For A Season
Single for a Season is the name of Gospel of Peace Church’s Single’s Ministry. The purpose of our Single’s Ministry is to encourage and empower Singles of all ages to use this Season of being Single to learn, grow, develop and mature in their relationship with Jesus Christ, our First Love. Everyone starts out being Single, no one is born Married, therefore we all can identify with being Single for a Season at one time or another during our lives. Many Singles feel lonely so they rush into Marriage without the proper tools for Marital Success; thus, creating a worse problem because those who often rush in to Marriage, will often rush out of Marriage when the thrill is gone (emotional high) or when hard times come. This cycle often happens because; they didn’t take enough time to first get to know Jesus as their First Love, If Jesus is our First Love that means we know His Voice clearly and are not led by our emotions, we are led by the Spirit. Secondly, they perhaps didn’t take this time to get to know themselves because how can we truly know others if we don’t even know our own selves and thirdly they didn’t take time to thoroughly get to know the person with whom they were planning to Marry because in Courtship anyone can be nice but it takes Jesus to have Marriage Success. Hear what Jesus said to the woman at the well in John 4:18 “The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband”. Jesus pointed out to her a pattern of her being led by her flesh(emotions) rather than being led by God’s Spirit and this behavior was hindering her Success. This is why we must use the Season we have as Singles to fall in Love with Christ, His Word, so we can get to know His Voice so He can reveal to us things about ourselves that we need to correct, He will also reveal things about those around us and in due Season He will also reveal to us our Marital Partner. Galatians 6:9 teaches “for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 teaches .”To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” We love and value our Singles at Gospel of Peace Church and they play an important role in the Mission and Vision of our Church.
