Sovereign Grace Singles

Did you know there is actually a “Sovereign Grace Singles” dating site for Christian singles? Oh, wait a minute, Sovereign Grace Singles (sovereigngracesingles.com) is not for all single Christians, but only for those who hold to a Reformed theological point of view. Sovereign Grace Singles even uses this Scripture from Amos 3:3 to back up their point of view: ‘Can two walk together except they be agreed?’ How outrageous, sad…and unbiblical!   Check out this quote on the Sovereign Grace…

20-Something Singles:How to Evangelize Millennials

As any 20-something Christian single could tell you, the vast majority of other 20-something singles do not attend church. Paradoxically, 20-somethings , or millennials as they are called today, are also one of the most receptive age groups to evangelize. How can both of these statements about 20-something singles be true? The answer is that many Christian churches are simply missing huge opportunities by not communicating the Gospel to 20-something singles in ways that make sense to them. In fact…

Thankfulness and Being Single

Thanksgiving Day is a time of thankfulness and being thankful for all our blessings. However, for many singles it’s simply another holiday to survive, and a reminder of how lonely and frustrating life can be without the emotional and physical intimacy of a mate. That’s why showing thankfulness is difficult for many of my Christian single solo friends, especially during this time of year. Do you feel the same way? A Tradition of Thankfulness In answer to this need, each…

The Great Commission and Single Adults

In a previous article related to the Great Commission, we mentioned that single adults are one of the most unchurched groups of people. Although the Great Commission commands us to preach the gospel to every creature, million of singles are unreached and still living in spiritual darkness. Why is this? The sad but true story is that many churches and individual Christians do not take the great Commission seriously. For example, in his influential book, The Disciple-Making Pastor, Bill Hull…

Fitness Singles-Are You Christian Single and Into Fitness?

Our bodies are the temple of the Spirit, and we should take good…

Christian Relationship Advice for Singles

Many singles contact us for Christian relationship advice, often asking questions like, “Should I get out of this relationship?” or “Should I marry this person?” Many times, however, Christian relationship advice is hard to give on issues like these because we don’t have all the information on the involved parties. Also, when dishing out Christian relationship advice, I’ve learned a long time ago to get both sides of the story before giving any advice on a topic. Christian Relationship Advice…

Single Dads Dealing with Grief and Loss

Hundreds of single dads who lost their wives during the 9/11 terrorist attacks are still dealing with grief. One particular single dad I interviewed relayed that he and his deceased wife had both worked in the World Trade Center. He survived that day only because he was late to work after taking his child to the school bus. Single Dads Going Through Grief The worst part of that day for this single dad was having to tell his five year…

Why You’re Still Single

Have you ever been asked by someone why you’re still single? During the holidays many singles were no doubt asked that worn out question by well meaning relatives and friends, “So why you’re still single?” Don’t you just hate that question? Many who desire marriage cringe at such a question but perhaps it a good one to ask of ourselves as we enter a brand new year. No need for sulking over why you’re still single here. Introspection can be…

Thanksgiving Prayer for Singles

Today in the US it’s Thanksgiving Day. This is supposed to be a day to lift up thanksgiving prayers for all the blessings God has given us throughout the year. Thanksgiving prayer goes hand in hand with a positive outlook. Unfortunately many Americans have forsaken God and are not into thanksgiving prayers. While I realize that nearly half of our 100,000 (and growing fast, thank you!) monthly readers are from outside of the USA, it’s good for all of us…

Prince of Peace for Singles

How we need the Prince of Peace today! Not only is there little peace in the world due to wars, but many walk around anxiously with little peace of mind and contentment in their hearts. Not a few of these folks are singles, who make up over 90 million people in the US alone. Prince of Peace Promise Recently, a dude took out a full page ad in the New York Times claiming he was the prince of peace, and…

Singles of Faith

Even though most singles avoid church, many are singles of faith who profess to know Christ as Lord and Saviour. Singles of Faith for Singles In 1 John 5:1-5, Paul writes about genuine faith in Christ. This is not mental assent or an intellectual exercise. Rather, it is active, abiding, believing, trusting faith… the kind of faith that Abraham had as he offered his son Isaac (James 2:19-22) and that Moses had as he led the children of Israel out…

Singles Living Victoriously

Are you living victoriously today as a single person? I just read this excellent book by Danny Lovett called Rod of the Spirit. Basically, he wrote that when trouble comes in one’s life (ie: a broken heart, single parenting problems, a sickness, an abuse relationship, etc.) it’s easy to lose your contentment. In these times you can become one of two things: a victim or a victor over your circumstance. Of course, on our own we are pretty much powerless,…

Broken Heart Quotes for Brokenhearted Singles

One of my favorite broken heart quotes comes from an unknown Christian author:”God can heal a broken heart, but He has to have all the pieces.” I love this broken heart quote because there within it is a kernel of hope for healing. If you have ever suffered a broken heart, you know the feelings of despair and rejection that goes along with it. I know I sure have. If you are going through the pain of a broken heart…

Anxiety Attacks and Being Single

Single people who suffer from anxiety attacks know how much it can affect their dating relationships and self-esteem. I should know because I used to suffer anxiety attacks for years myself. I remember one night being at the movies with my new date, when a terrible anxiety attack came over me. I started sweating, and my heart felt like it was jumping out of my chest. Because I was too embarrassed to let my date know what was going on,…
