How do the principles of Biblical Womanhood apply to single women?
If your a young person you've probably asked the question... "Is it God's will if I move here for this church...marry this person... get this job." How can you discern God's will?

What is the Scriptural emphasis regarding the "will of God" for our lives? Often we think of it in regards to who we are going to marry or where to work. God is concerned about those things, and will lead us into those things. However, in Scripture the "will of God" almost always refers to the moral will of God. Ephesians 5:17, "So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
In Ephesians 5:23 Paul says, "For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, AND is himself its SAVIOR." Why do we neglect the last 5 words in this comparison of the husband to Christ? Husband's cannot make atonement for their wives sins, but we can help preserve their souls in other ways (in this sermon we look at 3 of them).
Don't set your hopes on marriage, but on knowing Christ and living for Him. What does, "let those who have wives live as though they had none" mean? This is a sermon that the family integrated churches need to hear!
A sermon on viewing marriage in light of eternity. 29 This is what I mean, brothers: the appointed time has grown very short. From now on, let those who have wives live as though they had none, 30 and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no goods, 31 and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the present form of this world is passing away. 1 Corinthians 7:29-31
Who are your brothers and sisters? Jesus said they are those who do the will of my father in heaven. Brethren the reality is the people we are most close to are those who are most close to the Lord. Who love to talk of Christ and love Christ... oh how we need more of Christ!
