A Word about Marriage

One Flesh Rings30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.Ephesians 5:30-32 (KJV)

A marriage is the foundation of the family and it represents the relationship between Christ and His Church. If we can grasp God’s intent of the marital relationship, then we should be able to start to grasp the depth of God’s love for us. Don’t miss the significance of this or take it for granted.

He that hath an ear, hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church“.—Rev. 2:29

  2. Hi Sebastian, what I did for many years and some others do too, is not realise that is it is not fleshy worldly love that keeps a marriage together or alive, it is God’s Love, as we ask, we receive and are also strengthened and bound together by three cords that cannot be broken, which is The Lord and both husband and wife but one can’t do it alone it takes three, but by prayer, perseverance and patience, and God’s words of Truth in our conversations and shown in our actions, we can encourage even our unbelieving or unforgiving spouse to seek The Lord but we can’t make them, nor does God go against their free will.

    A man and woman’s’ heart should be so hidden in Christ Jesus that to find each other they need to seek Him first.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne

    Sebastian you pointed to the depth of Gods love for us, and its important for us to remember that, as in marriage, love is important as a basis for the relationship. So too is that love to be the basis of the relationship we have with our God , he wants to love us so much , how much are we prepared to give in return.?

    Blessings

      Thank you for that! You’re right…our real covenant is with God. We should do our part in the marriage, He will fulfill His portion.
      “When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou has vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.” (Ecclesiastes 5:4,5)

  6. Amen! I have always appreciated the fact that the LORD is “jealous” for us. I see that as a positive. He loves us so much that He desires us to give all our love and affection back to Him. When we do that, we are immeasurably blessed. Thank you Sebastian!
