I haven´t written here in a long time, I even had trouble logging in because I forgot my log in information, woops haha! But I finally found it and wanted to write something that has been going on in my life.
I actually got married very recently, well it has almost been a year now and I wanted to talk more about marriage, and christian marriages.
For me marriage is very holy, it is something we should treasure but in todays world unfortunatly it isn´t like that.
I want to pull a few scriptures about marriage before I start getting into it more.
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’ “
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
“Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
“A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.”
“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 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. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body.
“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.
However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”
1. God Created Man and Woman To be together.
2. When married we are not supposed to seperate.
3. God Hates Divorce and Only Reason for Divorce is sexual immorality or abandonment by an unbeliever. Nothing Else!!
For me these 3 points are so important when we talk about marriage and especially Christian Marriage. Because in todays world we get married for the wrong reasons and then it ends up in divorce for the wrong reasons so if we start right it will also end right.
Firstly build your foundation.
Me and my husband started out getting to know eachother first. We read the bible together and both of us wanted to start right.
If you have your morals right and your foundation in God it will also go right.
Fights Come, We are Human.
Fights accure, me and my husband fight now and then, and we do so over stupid things. But that is not the reason to divorce, never is. Everyone fights because we are not the same. We are two different beings. Divorce is never the solution, no matter what anyone says.
I am not in love anymore.
Not a reason for divorce. You might not be in your honeymoon stage anymore but not having feelings is just bull. If you didn´t love him/her in the first place why did you get married? Never marry during your lovey dovey stage is also something important! Let God lead you, always!! If he thinks you are right for eachother then marry.
Christians divorce as much as non-christians.
I actually looked it up and this is a big fat lie! Those who keep to God and have God first in their lives will not divorce. The real procentage is actually more like 30 % which is still high but nowhere near what non-christians do.
Back to my third point up top, God Hates Divorce and Only Reason for Divorce is sexual immorality or abandonment by an unbeliever. Nothing Else!!
This is biblical,
Malachi 2:16: “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”
Matthew 19:9: “And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”
Matthew 5:32: “But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
1 Corinthians 7:15: “But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace.”
If you divorce on any other grounds, than pointed above, you sin and commit adultery. That is just the truth and the fact of the bible itself.
So I encourage you to do it Gods way, cause it is the right way and you will be so much happier!!
I got so sad the other day, speaking of marriage, of a new trend in America called, Divorce Selfie. I cannot believe things like that is happening in our world. Making fun of something so serious as divorce, is just sad. People actually take their own lives because of divorce and now people want to celebrate that! Our world is actually turning evil good and it is quite frightening to see..
But anyway, I Hope this got you thinking a little about Marriage. This might have been a little bit of a sadder post or more on the Divorce side of things so I will probably make another post about how Marriage makes God so Happy 😀 It is a joyful day when people get married and we should rejoice!!
Part 2 Coming later then 😀 Woop!!
