Devotional: Marriage Held In Honour
Christian Devotion on Marriage
"...Let marriage be held in honour (esteemed worthy,
precious, of great price, and especially dear) in
all things. And thus let the marriage bed be undefiled
(kept undishonoured); for God will judge and punish the
unchaste [all guilty of sexual vice] and adulterous..." -
Hebrews 13:4 (AMPC)
Marriage these days seems to be anything but 'held in
honour'. More people are opting out of getting 'married';
instead many prefer to be 'living together'. Others
marry with conditions attached, or they marry and give
up too soon. Sometimes we think the easiest option is
to walk away. It's just too hard and painful to deal
with the issues that arise. But that's just what Satan
wants. I believe the enemy is behind so much of the
breakdowns in marriage and families. Even at the
God takes marriage seriously, after all, He instituted it.
No matter how hard it gets in our marriages, and we feel
we want to give up, we need to remember that God can make
a way where there is no way. A friend of mine shared that
with me when I was going through a rough time. It really
hit home. I had lost hope, but that statement gave me
hope again. Nothing is too difficult to deal with when
you invite God into it.
Marriage is most precious to the Lord
When we come together in one accord.
