‘The fact that some feel called to remain single for the sake of Jesus points to a special act of love and is a sign of an undivided heart … The undividedness with which a person gives up everything for Jesus brings about a special relationship to Him. Such a person suffers for the sake of Jesus because the soul wants to be like Him in all things …’
Heini Arnold, In the Image of God – Marriage and Chastity in Christian Life (Plough Pub. House 1979).
