COUPLES-

Apart from the fact that marriage is a wonderful relationship with the one you love, there is also the responsibility part. There is something always there to remind us of this truth. Yet for some of us, our flesh, stubborn self, ego, revenge, tit for tat, strife, and unforgiving spirit keep us constantly on loggerheads with our spouse.

When you view your marriage from another perspective, from the perspective of Covenant, it will change the way you approach your marriage.

My husband, during one of our midweek services, taught along this line. It was such a blessing and it changed my perspective about my marriage forever.

God is cutting a new covenant with His people. To God, our marriage is about the covenant and not just about our spouse.

And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me. I will find joy doing good for them and will faithfully and wholeheartedly replant them in this land. –Jeremiah 32:39 – 41 (NLT)

More so, God was in Christ when He cut a new covenant with us by His blood.  Jesus became both the offering and the offerer when He had to fulfill the demands of the law to set us free from death and its consequences. Jesus took the cross, suffered great agony, and endured such shame and pain that He might see us free.

When you begin to see your marriage as a vital part of you, and that Jesus paid the price for you, you will have no choice but to sit up.

Just like the Israelites, Pharaoh wanted to negotiate them out of taking their children, livestock, and all that belonged to them. They were wise enough to know that God was giving them a total and complete deliverance that include all they had.

Your marriage to God is all about the covenant. There is a higher purpose; there is a more important agenda in the father’s heart, which is total deliverance.

Jesus didn’t just die for our spirits not to be lost in hell. He died for everything about our lives; our health, children, marriage, finances, mental health, emotional life, everything.

We owe God to respond back in gratitude, faithfulness, and obedience to our part of the covenant.
