1 Corinthians Chapter 7 Study

1 Corinthians 7

1 Corinthians Chapter 7 Study gives The Answer to Fornication is Marriage

1Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

2Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

3Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

If you feel you have to have sexual intercourse regularly, then Paul recommends a woman find herself a husband and a man find himself a wife. And render benevolence to each other; for this is one of the chief reasons for marriage, the intimacy.

Paul tells the unmarried and the widow to refrain from marrying unless they just feel they have to. 9But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. It is better to marry then to commit adultery or fornication and burn in the lake of fire.

1 Corinthians Chapter 7 Study

10And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

11But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

We read where the Lord Jesus taught this when the Sadducees and Pharisees were trying to tempt Him. Only for adultery; other than that, there is no such thing as divorce to the Lord God of Israel (Jesus).

If your husband beats you or is abusive obviously you must leave him, but according to Paul, Paul says do not remarry. Paul says let not the wife leave from her husband. Give him time to get help for his anger for his problems; report it to the elders, if he doesn’t get help send him to the dept of corrections, let some men beat on him.

The thing is pray and fast very hard before you think of getting a divorce. We need to get out of the mindset of jumping to divorce for the littlest thing we encounter in a marriage.

Paul and the 1 Corinthians Chapter 7 Study

Paul also address marriages where both were not into the Word but suddenly one sees the light and are into the Lord’s Word. For isntance, you are a believer, but your spouse is not.

Paul again teaches you not to leave your spouse because they do not want to deal with the Lord as you do. If they want to leave, then you allow them to leave; but do not push them away out the door because you want to find someone so-called “equally” yoked.

19Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

Paul is referring to people here and not the actual circumcision. Being an Israelite is nothing, being a non Israelite is nothing, all that matters is the keeping of the commandments of God. This is what Paul is illustrating in verse nineteen.

32But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

33But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

1 Corinthians Chapter 7 Study About Marriage

Paul is telling the virgins and unmarried their advantage; and it is quite true. A married man is focused on pleasing God; and a part of pleasing God is pleasing his wife.

The only thing is your wife is more tangible to your physical than God is; so at times men get caught up in pleasing their wives more than they please God. Do not let this be you.

The unmarried have the ability to focus on the Lord Jesus solely (unless they are married to their job or business). However, it is a blessing from the Lord to send a man a good wife, and a woman a good husband.

This is a 1 Corinthians Chapter 7 Study, Praise ye the Lord Jesus, in Jesus name.
