Following Jesus can be challenging for someone who is single, in love, and burning with passion for another. Yet, Christ calls us to abstain from sexual immorality.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Ephesians 5:3
This call for purity can present an insurmountable obstacle. In our culture, couples often leave together as a kind of trial run, which makes this challenge of abstaining from sex all the more difficult, arguably ridiculous because the temptation is constant. But, at the same time, separating from the temptation is financially or logistically challenging as well.
Living in this state leaves people one of two bad options: 1.) Live with guilt that Christ has called them to repent, or 2.) Opt not to follow Christ because it just seems too difficult.
Not without hope
There is another option…get married.
Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. 1 Corinthians 7:8-9
I would suggest the simple solution that the Bible provides–you should get married. Not next year. Not when you have the money. Just get married now.
