Marriage 518

Spouse, You must take responsibility to make your family a delightful place to be. Whatever you make or fail to make of it is what it becomes. For example, cultivate the habit of giving surprise gifts. Giving is actually a way of expressing love and brightening up the atmosphere at home when it is dull. Also, making a surprise celebration of important dates together creates excitement and brightens up your home as a home maker.

Single persons who are Christians need to choose a kind of relationship that will order their lives around knowing God, rather than engaging in immorality. Flee from any relationship that takes you away from God. It is a sign and signals that there is no future in it or that you have loads of troubles if you jump in.

Singles: flee the forbidden fruit which is pre-marital sex. Keep your sex drive in neutral. Keep your sexual appetite under control. Remember that your memory will not be as kind to you, as God!

Marriage is an institution designed by God. So, it cannot be successful when God is ignored. A husband and wife, who are committed to the Lord Jesus Christ and to doing the will of God, are walking in the light. This brings great stability into marriage and family life.

As parents, you must be committed in training and providing for your children.

A blissful marriage requires commitment to your spouse.  When you neglect this, no amount of prayer and fasting and ‘sleeping’ in church can prevent your home from falling apart.

Finally, to fulfil God’s purpose for your marriage the first step is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Number two: To be a keeper and a solution provider requires the grace of God and to access that grace, you must be born again. 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.
