Marriage is Honorable

TEXT

(Hebrews 13:4)

 

   Here we are in the 8Th year of this new millennium already and I am not surprised that there are less and less monogamous couples that are headed to the alter for Holy matrimony. What I am aghast is the rate if divorce is still on the rise and now it exceeds 50% in the United States Of America. marriage was ordained  by God as His worldly example of the family as He means it to be. There is a plethora of scriptural reference one can refer to to learn of the proscription for marriage. Before it escapes me let me say heretofore that very little planning is actively laid out for the marriage relationship. Yet there is   meticulous detail and dissected perfection for the 25-minute marriage ceremony. Do engaged couples still consider pre-marital counseling by a trained professional as substantive value prior to marriage, ummmm I wonder, because whenever I mention pre-marital counseling the prospective bride and grooms faces turn near sour. Last week a young lady literally ran me down on the streets of a major city and questioned me of my ministerial credentials to marry her and her groom then, immediately. I was visibly confused as that has never happened before. When I asked them about pre- marital counseling their reply was etched their facial expressions, that said, what for and what's that.

 

   They claimed to be in possession of a valid marriage license. I asked her, "why do you want to get married to this gentleman in this manner", her response was, because he wants to get married right away and I have to do what the Lord is telling me to do" I then asked her if she loved this young man, to which she stated "no" Needless to say I did not engage them any further. The young man was visibly upset with my questions, so much so that he grabbed the arm of his girl friend and stalked off, all the while muttering a few expletives. You think those expletives were for me?

 

MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE

"Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled.

But whoremongers and adulterers, God will judge."

(II Corinthians 6:14)

 

   Unevenly yoked with unbelievers is for the born again Christian to adhere to, for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness and what communion hath light with darkness? Marriage in itself presents more than its share of challenges to test the relationship without blindly ignoring that admonishment. That admonishment would also serve well the unbelievers who marry other unbelievers. What a powerful non working combination for future marital failure.

 

   Let us return to Gods way for his institution of marriage. Invite the Lord into your engagement that He may strengthen your resolve to remain steadfast celibate until after the marriage. Keep the Lord in your marriage relationship for a strand of three cords is not easily broken. Husbands love your wives even as Christ loves the church, be ready to die for her. Wives submit to your husbands in all reverence to his being the under shepherd of your family. Lastly a family that prays together stays together-----in Christ Jesus---Marriage IS Honorable

THE GREAT DEBATE

“And Simon Peter answered and said,

Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God”

Matthew 16.16

 

   The recent debate between Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama highlighted a verb al exchange about what’s best for America.  Romney touted lower taxes and less government spending while President Obama emphasized strengthening the middle class.  The question is not new, as pundits and politicians have often queried, ‘what’s best for America’.  That we can discuss and debate these points is a fine example of the freedom of speech we enjoy in the ‘land of the free’.

 

   A more significant question arose in the time of Jesus’ earthly ministry.  A great debate arose regarding the origin of Christ, whether He was ‘from God’.  Despite healing the sick and raising the dead, many people still wondered, is Jesus of God? When Jesus healed a man born blind, the man who received his sight challenged His detractors, and said, “If this Man were not of God, He could do nothing”, John 9.33.  Even after being resurrected from the grave, His own disciple, Thomas, declared, “Except I…see in His hands the print of the nails…and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe”, John 20.25.

 

   Do you believe that Jesus is the Christ?  Do you believe He can save your soul?  What will take for you to accept Him as your Lord and Savior?  Jesus told Thomas, “…because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20.29.  Open your heart to Jesus.  Don’t debate Him, believe Him. Receive Him today.  Jesus, the Light of the world.
