Marriage 302

Marriage is not ‘if you love me I will love you in return.” It is unconditional and a commandment from God. This is an instruction that must be obeyed. God is telling husbands to love their wives, sacrificially and unconditionally. This does not depend on your wife’s character. I pray that your marriage and home will experience a positive transformation in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen

Some singles ladies base their choice of a life partner on the abundance of things the man has. They want a man with a big car, a high paying job, a house, etc. Any marriage that is founded on material possession is on a shaky foundation and will soon fall apart. Don’t be blinded by material things and later find out that it is not all that glitters is gold

Sisters, do not compare your husband with your friend’s husband. Do not compare or nag your spouse for not possessing what your friend or your friend’s spouse has. Don’t push your spouse to do evil just to please you. Be content and pray for him. This is because a covetous person, who is never satisfied with what he or she has per time, will run into dubious people and get involved in criminal acts.

Trust is a strong key to family finance. Husband and wife must trust each other enough to put their money together and be prudent in spending it. This is why accountability is very important, it helps to boost trust.

Whatever you cannot do to yourself, you will not do to your spouse. In other words, do unto your spouse as you want your spouse to do unto you. An understanding of this will chase away selfishness from the homes. It will also put an end to fighting and misunderstanding. If you, for any reason, hate your spouse, it is a sign that you are not united with him/her.

There is dignity in marriage, but it takes the right character to attract it. Character commands unction, unction commands dignity. Character crisis is the reason for failure of most marriages. If you are still single, ask God to give you right character because attitude is the speaker of your present and the prophet of your future.

The Lord’s presence in your home is the first step to peace. Allow Jesus to come into your heart now and your story will change.

Finally, to fulfil God’s purpose for your marriage the first step is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. If you want to be born again you need to say this prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my Sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
