Text: Genesis 5:2
Marriage was instituted by God. Marriage was not made for man’s desire. Don’t enter marriage for the purpose of getting something from your partner. The will of God is not to fulfill your desire. Don’t enter marriage with a partner that is selfish. Don’t marry someone that cannot sacrifice for you.
THREE IMPORTANT THINGS TO UNDERSTANDING THE MIND OF GOD ABOUT MARRIAGE
- PARTNERSHIP: This is a part of a whole. Being a part means you are a part of your partner while being a part of a whole means you are part of God. There are too many things that are good but not right. Go for what is right for you. You can never be complete without your spouse.
- THE RIGHT ORDER: The right order is God-Family-Work. A lot of people have missed the order by pursuing their work first and leaving God behind. He who pursue riches can never be rich. Only God makes rich. Never marry a man because of his wealth but marry a man who is in God’s presence. For the unmarried, there are factors you need to consider before getting married, these are God’s factor, Parental factor, Pastoral factor, YOU factor and Religious factor.
- SLEEPING AND DEPENDING ON GOD
