In writing 1 Corinthians, Paul faced the challenge of a church established in the truth but rife with disunity and sin, influenced by a decadent pagan culture in its city. As he encourages the faithful, confronts the wayward, and answers pressing questions, Paul gives us some of the most beloved passages in the New Testament alongside some of the most challenging. It is a letter that deserves our careful study.

In volume three of this series, Alistair Begg considers Paul’s answer to a question the Corinthians had asked about marriage. Paul revealed that marriage and singleness alike are gifts from our sovereign God and that each has God’s glory as its purpose. As believers set out to honor the Lord in whatever circumstance they are in, He will give them grace to obey His commandments, seek His kingdom, and honor Him in whatever place He puts us.
