Marriage Matters

MARRIAGE  MATTERS

 

 God Created them in His own image, Male and Female, Blessed them and said “have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth. (Gen 1: 27 – 28)

Marriage to day has become a big issue in our modern society. Two people go into marriage because they love each other and want to share each other’s life.

IN THE FIRST PLACE HOW DID THIS MARRIAGE COME ABOUT AND WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS?

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him”. (Gen 2:18)

So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh; and the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.     (Gen 2: 21 – 24)

                                   CAN EITHER OF THEM WALK AWAY FROM THIS UNION? (DIVORCE)

Some Pharisees came to him and tried  to trap him by asking, “Does our Law allow a man to divorce his wife for whatever reason he wishes?”.  Jesus answered, “Haven’t you read the scripture that says that in the beginning the Creator made people male and female? And God said, for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and unite with his wife, and the two will become one. So they are no longer two, but one. No human being must separate, then, what God has joined together.” (Mt 19: 3 – 6)

“I tell you, then, that any man who divorses his wife for any cause other than her unfaithfulness, commits adultery if he marries some other woman.”  (Mt 19.9)

Whatever we do, the Good Lord is watching us. Wishing all every blessing.
