Marriage....A Gift from God!!

Marriage is the oldest institution known to man. It dates back to creation and the Garden of Eden. God himself preformed the first marriage ceremony. He also gave away the first bride. On the sixth day of creation, having made the world a home for man..God said..
"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." Genesis 1:26
and so He did..." So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." Genesis 1:27
After God made man..He knew man needed a He said to Himself.
"It is not good that man should be alone; I will make a helper fit for him." Genesis 2 ;18
" So the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh;and the rib which the Lord had taken from the man he made into 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." Gensis 2;21-24
Why after making Adam the most marvelous creature in the wonderful new world, did He take a rib from his perfect body to make a life companion for him? There must of been a good reason for God doing this...He wanted man to know right from the beginning that his wife was truly a part of him, so that he would treat her as he would treat himself. Its love at first sight. Instantly both realize that they belong to each other. We can see that Gods primary purpose for marriage was to make two people happy. He knew that by sharing life together could they taste its richest joys.
How can we Keep this most beautiful gift from God

Preserve Unity at All Cost.

"The two shall become one," said Jesus So they are no longer two but one." Colossians 1:16. Obviously it was Gods idea for the institution of marriage of man and woman to be united not only legally but totally.A wedding is two hearts laid upon the alter with the fire of divine love, to be fused as one for God. Its the beginning of a lifelong experience of thinking together, planning together, hoping together, praying together. The beautiful gift from God to share in evey phase of life..from wedding day till journeys end...
Settle misunderstandings at once.
Two people from different backgrounds are bound to have some misunderstandings at some point of time.this is just a part of adjustment that marriage entails. But they should never be allowed to develop into a long drawn-out quarrel.Your Bible tells you that they should be settled on the same day that they arise.." Do not let the sun go down on your anger," Ephesians 4:26. At the onset af any quarrel read these temper-cooling words: " I beg you to lead a life of worty of the calling to which you have been called, with lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one anotherin love, eager to maintain the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace." verses 1-3. agreement may come only as a result as someone backing down. A simple "Im sorry" for an unkind word ..Its a rewarding attitude to take.....

Let Love Prevail.

Never let love die out....Keep it alive whatever may have been said or done..Keep it unfailing and sooner or later, it will cover all sins. The hurts will be healed, the mistakes will be forgotten, the impatience and unkindness will be forgiven. " Love covers a multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:8. "husbands , love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that the church might be presented before him in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. " Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body." Ephesians 5:25-31. He couldn't have spoken more plainly... Husbands should love their wives with the same selfless, sacrificail love that Christ has shown for His church. Wives are to respond in the same manner.

Let God Direct.

A dedicated marriage will never break up...When husband and wife put God first in everything and look to Him for direction in all areas of their lives. They will be blessed with peace, harmony and contentment that will be the envy of their friends. Unity of worship, unity of devotion, unity of sacrifice, will do more than anything else to keep a marriage STRONG...
If you want yur marriage to last, share your Christian experience. Pray together. Read the Bible together. Go to church together. "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15. Words to live by....
"I Thee Wed"

" Come ,let's be a comfortable couple and take care of each other!
How glad we shall be, that we have somebody we are fond of always,
to talk to and sit with. Let's be a comfortable couple. Now do, my dear!"

-Charles Dickens
