SINGLENESS AND EUNUCHS

Today we have the second of our posts from guest blogger and author Ennrich Krtizinger. His book Gender Plus was released this week

Jesus calls those who are not married eunuchs in Matthew 19:11-12! This is so interesting! It is not seen as a negative or spoken of as a lesser person. No, but there is room in God’s Kingdom for those who are not married!

Even more interesting are the reasons why… Some are born eunuchs, some are made so by others, and some choose it for the sake of the kingdom! So the kingdom of God does not only consist of married couples. There is room for singles or eunuchs as well. How amazing is our God to leave room for variety and diversity! He even goes further to give this promise to the eunuch in Isaiah 56:1-7… a name better than sons and daughters.

Being single comes with boundaries, just like marriage comes with its own boundaries! The Bible is also a textbook for life and living so dip in and read more about this. A great example of a single person is the apostle Paul who wrote almost two thirds of the New Testament! Wow. Thank you Lord that you are calling all people back to you, whether single, married, or eunuch. Now that’s some food for thought!

Gender Plus is available now from our website.
