Marriage is a socially recognized union that establishes rights and obligations between spouses. It is a union that is supposed to last forever or rather till death due the spouses part. However, most contemporary marriages are no longer built on love, trust, honor, loyalty, or obedience, but rather benefits and financial security.
Marriage is, for some, a difficult process. It requires two people to attempt to come together harmoniously, with some sacrifices. For better or worse, through sickness and health, through prosperity and depravity are some of the vows made between spouses. It seems an easy task when the love is new or rather in the honeymoon stage. However, life's ebbs and flows can, at times, weaken the sanctity of marriage. A spouse looses a job, is unable to perform his or her marital obligations due to an illness, or infidelity threatens the once strong bond.
Marriage takes 3
Marriages are often between two persons. If you want yours to stand the test of time, remember it takes three. When a couple marries with God as a partner, they are choosing to be faithful to Him. They serve one another as if they are serving God.
Marriage is a work of Faith sanctified by God
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing, Or having cleansed her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself."(Ephesians 5:21-28)
"Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. (Exodus 20:3) For your Creator will be your husband; the LORD of Heaven's Armies is His name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.(Isaiah 54:5) Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.(Hebrews 13:4)
Be Faithful Unto Him; Christ Jesus
