“The grass is always greener on the other side.” This maxim may seem true, but Paul the Corinthian Christians to embrace their calling – right where they are now. Whether single, married, Jew, Gentile, slave, or free, true contentment doesn’t come from life changes.
In this message, Dru looks at what Paul says about marriage and singleness, offering reasons to get married and to stay single. He also offers practical advice on how “marrieds” and singles can support and encourage each other in the church.

Delving deeper into the twisted world of Ancient Corinth, Dru looks at another issue facing this early church: sexual immorality. Rather than merely tell the church what not to do with their bodies, Paul calls them – and us – to use our bodies for something far greater than mere self-gratification. Our bodies are no longer ours: We were bought at a price.
