Holy Matrimony: Now That We’re Married
The 21st century has ushered in some extreme, strange, and disturbing beliefs about marriage. We’re living in a day and time where the definition and purpose of marriage is being challenged, and in some areas of our country changed to meet the desires of our society.
Laws have been passed in some states that sanction same sex marriage, men marrying men, and women marrying women. Men and women marrying animals may be just around the corner, and if we’re not careful, we may see laws on the books that sanction and encourage this as well, particularly if the animal will be entitled to the medical or insurance benefits of its spouse. You may say this will never happen. Well, we’re also living in a time where public display of the Ten Commandments is being challenged.
It seems our society doesn’t want to be faced with or reminded of what God has said and established for us to have an orderly society. It’s almost as though what we want is for every man to be able to do what he feels is right in his own heart. We’ve been there before. Marriage is under attack from the outside as well as the inside. Husbands and wives are trying to manage marriage, while society is trying to re-define and re-shape marriage at the same time. We’ve been blinded by the enemy, unable to see the spiritual warfare launched on the marriage which is wounding families, businesses, and the church, resulting in serious casualties. However, all is not lost if we look to God’s Word, embrace His principles, and apply them to our marriage and daily living. He has already said a number of things pertaining to both.
Each marriage is different. But I know a lasting GREAT marriage is possible! What makes a good marriage is mutual love, respect and commitment!
