Read 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

MEMORISE: This is what the Lord commands concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, ‘Let them marry whom they think best, but they may marry only within the family of their father’s tribe’ (Numbers 36:6)

There are different types of marriage, but Christian marriage is unique and different from them all. Christian marriage involves lifelong commitment between one man and one woman, ONLY, who have personally known and accepted the Lord, to live together as husband and wife, till death do them part. It is a journey of no return. In view of this, all should wisely and carefully handle Christian marriage.
According to our Memory Scripture today, one who wants to enter into marriage should critically look at two important principles: marrying to the best man or woman (according to God’s standard and will) among those available to you for marriage; and marrying to the family of your Father in heaven.
1. Marrying to the best among others: Since Christian marriage gives no room for divorce or going back along the way, the only antidote for one to have a safe, lasting and blissful marriage is to get married to the best man or woman from among the myriads. How can you know His choice among the three options (Good, better, and best)? God will show you His best, if you can patiently wait on Him (Psa. 37:5, 7). You need the help of the Holy Spirit to sharpen your sensitivity to know His choice among those before you.
2. Marrying to the family of your Father: God is our heavenly Father. All true Christians are members of His family. Any Christian brother or sister who wants to marry should get married within the family of God, regardless of tribe, language and denomination (Gal. 3:28). If you get married to one of the sons or daughters of the devil, their father, the devil, will not take it easy with you (cf. 2 Cor. 6:14-18). Don’t put yourself into the marital tight corner that prayer may not solve on time, or the one that prayers may not solve at all.

1. Lord, help our young ones to carefully choose their life partners in marriage.
2. Lord, sharpen my sensitivity to know and do away with wrong people around me, most especially, with regards to marriage.
3. Let there be revival of patience, perseverance, purity and godliness in marriage among our youths, O Lord.
