John Piper's sermon presents a precious perspective on the 'plight' and significance of Christian singleness today. As a (currently) single pastor myself, I can relate with and vouch for much of this sermon's content, experientially and biblically.
If singleness is a gift why have marriage? Also, if singleness is a gift why do people want to get married? Doesn't God place that desire to marry into your heart? I wonder why people think that singles aren't serving God. I have been serving in the Children's Ministry for 16 yrs. Plus I have been on 3 short term mission trips. It's not a matter of serving, it's the desire that God places in you.
I have never heard a whole sermon on singleness from the pulpit before--many on marriage. Single adults are now the slight majority in America...we should probably direct some of our preaching to the majority in our churches, right?
Piper puts to bed the feeling of many singles--that they are second class citizens in the kingdom of God--this was an excellent, motivating, and as usual God saturated sermon.
This married pastor completely ignores the unfulfilled desire for intimacy that singles have to cope with. He as an (I assume) happily married person can get (almost) all the intimacy he wants, but singles have to do without. I think for many single people that's much more of a problem than not being able to have physical children. That's sorely missing from this sermon and that's not something you can just "write off".
