HOW IS YOUR MARRIAGE?

READ: 1 Corinthians 7:1-16 

MEMORISE:
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh (Genesis 2:24)

EXPOSITION
The above question can be either pleasantry, or a bombshell! ‘Bombshell’ because some homes are being rocked by untold crises. ‘Pleasantry’ because some others are really enjoying every bit of it. So how is it with you? In any case, God’s desire is that you should enjoy your marriage.

Since God instituted marriage, achieving success in it without resorting to Him becomes very laborious and insurmountable. This is the first thing that many homes have not addressed. Who launched your home – Christ or man? The marriage institution is so special and unique. The Person behind its making must not be sidelined in anything in the marriage.
God expects that your home will be a replica and foretaste of the heavenly kingdom on earth. Your marriage must be where joy, peace, godliness, kindness, and love resides (Gal. 5:22). Yours must not be a home where wrangling, stress, sedition and strives have field day (Gal. 5:19). Children or wards in your care must be those who glorify God in all ramifications.

How do you get this done in your marriage? Seriously work for it. Believe that God wants your marriage to work and succeed. Live accordingly with your spouse. God is doing His part in your marriage. He expects you to do what He has empowered you to do. Stay blessed as your marriage begins to live up to His expectation, henceforth.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord help me to pattern my marriage and home according to Your holy standard.
2. Pray against the activities of the devil in Christian homes that are at the verge of breaking.
3. Pray that God should give our youths the patience to wait for God’s timing in their marital choice-making, so that they too wouldn’t be languishing in the pains of marriage.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Psalms 80:9 – 84:10; 1 Corinthians 2:9 -3:14
