Here, I will make an attempt to describe what marriage should be. This will help our focus to stand on the core of marriage.
A lot of people are into what is far from marriage in God’s perspective and they expect God to bless their union.
If we do things God’s way, He is under obligation to honor us.
1. A covenant marriage is a union between two blessed people.
You are blessed when you both follow and obey God’s injunction as stated in His word. The first step to being blessed is being born again, then attending God’s house regularly as a couple, praying together, studying, meditating, and confessing God’s word. Being blessed has nothing to do with riches but it sure will magnetism riches towards you.
2. Marriage is a union between two responsible people
Both husband and wife must be responsible for their marriage. It is teamwork that requires the input of the two of you. Know the state of each other. Look out for yourselves and never deny each other.
3. Marriage is between two focused people
If it must be successful, then both husband and wife have to remain focused on their vows. Don’t be distracted by your work, career, children, social life, friends, families, etc. Going in opposite directions will cause disasters and accidents. Desire it to work out and both of you should work it out.
4. Marriage is a union of two servants of God
When both husband and wife serve God, it is easy for them to serve each other. It takes humility to serve God and thus it becomes easier to submit to one another in love. Serving God is the curriculum and the ingredients to having a blissful marriage. Some want to have it wonderful, yet, don’t want to get the ingredients.
May God bless our marriage.
