very few don't feel at all like a sexual
relationship with anyone and just feel called for spiritual concerns –
for a relationship with God -1Corinthians
7:32-35; Matthew 19:12.
If one strongly feels that he or she
doesn't want to share and help another be happy here involving a sexual
relationship and feels led to just serve God, then that's
all well and good: Paul came to feel this way after a sexual relationship
and when a time of distress (factors causing sorrow, misery, suffering
and pain) was upon the church
7:7-10,25,26 "For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every
man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner and another after
that. I say therefore to the unmarried and widows: It is good for them
if they abide even as I. But if they
cannot contain, let them marry. For it is better to marry
than to burn-(sexually).
And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord: Let not the wife
depart from her husband...Now concerning virgins I have no commandment
of the Lord, yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of
the Lord to be faithful. I suppose therefore that this is good for the
present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be."

Paul did, whether in a sexual relationship
or not -Romans
1:9 "For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the

to have a male/female
relationship along with the spiritual one with God. God sees deep.
He calls no one from something that's a part of him that he would then
lack if in total service of God.
But what about
some may ask? Jonah didn't want
to do as God said even though he had already given his life to God -Jonah
1:1-3,9; 2:4,9. Read the whole story
(4 short chapters) about how Jonah, after doing what God says in warning
the city of Nineveh, which city changes from their evil ways, gets angry
at this. It shows that even the imperfect in heart are used by God.
