Faithfulness

Faithfulness is a very important aspect of building a strong healthy marriage!

Marriage really is about teamwork! Is your marriage really what you expected? Or did you expect things to just happen? Your marriage will not bloom and flourish unless you both put forth an effort. The two of you need to make a conscious genuine attempt to honor your marriage vows. Your health, mental state, physical stamina and well being are greatly impacted by the manner in which you relate in your marriage! Together you have the ability to create a healthy, invigorating, enjoyable, relaxing and harmonious home environment.

Marriage is the ultimate partnership relationship between a man and a woman! A good marriage embraces loyalty and faithfulness! Faithfulness is an expression of love!

Growing together in  your marriage

It is important to learn to become transparent with your spouse. Marriage is about continuously growing and encouraging one another to become the best person that they can be… This way everyone benefits.

Make it a point to become increasingly aware of one another’s temperaments! Temperament is how we react or respond to people, places and things in any given situation. Temperament is our God given  innate inherent characteristics that make us unique. No two persons are really the same.  God made each of us as originals. But two people can learn to live together in harmony as we respect one another. This is how your love grows!

Embrace allowing the “Fruit of the Spirit” to flourish within each of you as well as within your marriage. Chastise one another yes, but speak the truth in love! Timing is key. There are times you must say to your spouse what no one else will say. This is to help one another to grow and improve. Rather than focusing on one another’s shortcomings,  frequently look for times to build one another up and encourage one another when the opportunity arises. This also builds transparency and intimacy.

 

Building Intimacy Together

Physical and emotional intimacy is important in marriage. This too will enhance your moments of close physical intimacy. A good strong marriage makes you both better and stronger individuals who have one another’s best interest at heart. This is true wherever you, whether if you are apart or together.  You are secure knowing that you always have one another’s  heart between you.  Learn to lay aside improper or dysfunctional ways that will only hinder your spiritual growth as well as your marriage.

 

Always remember; You honor God when you honor your marriage!

 

Lovingly, and faithfully work together to make sure that one another’s sexual needs and desires are realized and fulfilled within your marriage. Your physical intimacy becomes yet another committed expression of the depth of your love for one another. Together you can work through any issues that hinder you from freely expressing yourselves to one another…

 

Coming together  as one is natural. There is no need for shame when expressing what God made to be a beautiful time of coming together! Physically, emotionally and intimately the “two become one flesh” Within marriage the “marriage bed” is honorable in the sight of God. “Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed should always be kept pure.” Hebrews 13. You both commit to honor not only your marriage but the marriages of others.

 

There is security in faithfulness

Faithfulness is part of the Fruit of the Spirit! When you are faithful it yields oodles of security! You both know no matter what; that you can trust one another and that you are there for one another. Even when you disagree you have inner peace about your marriage because there is a deep well of trust built into the foundation of your relationship. You can even disagree respectfully.  Your marriage is a high priority!

 

Life is complex and at times very difficult… Everyone has a bad day… So you do not readily personalize your spouse’s every word or frustration. You allow one another to vent when needed… You respect one another and become sensitive to their needs. Do not allow pride to take the reign of your marriage, be humble, caring, discerning and loving. This takes inner strength and patience… Faithfulness allows you to give one another the room to grow and give each other some space whenever necessary.

 

Marriage is sacred in the eyes of God! Spend some time daily in His Word. Embrace and implement His principles for life and living within your marriage. He is the original Designer of marriage. God’s way really does works when we adhere to His principles. Building a strong loving marriage involves commitment and gentleness. You can still be strong but and be gentle. Gentleness is another part of the Fruit of the Spirit we will discuss next in this series. I hope that this has been helpful and you are encouraged to take responsibility for your part in making your marriage successful!

 

When you honor your marriage vows you honor God!

 

“But the Fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness…” Galatians 5.  These become by products of an ever increasing  relationship with the Lord.    Embracing God’s Word and His principles grows us in His Grace. 

 

Marriage God’s way comes with marvelous benefits.  Marriage  is a commitment to work together  for a common goal.  You can be united as One!  Therefore,  you should marry because we want to grow in love together for a lifetime.   As you honor God within your marriage He will bless you by multiplying and manifesting  the Fruit of His Spirit  within both of you Faithfulness is a part of His Fruit.

 

Benefits of Faithfulness

Faithfulness genuinely  says that I take my vows to you and to God seriously. That I love you and I am here for you no matter what and together  we can make it through anything!  Transparency and intimacy is encouraged. You  not only remain  faithful to one another but you are  also faithful to God as well!   Yes things will happen… However, you can always invite God into the “messiness” of your life because you know that God is forever  faithful!   God is more than able! He has given us His Comforter to Help us! 

 

While in this world we are living within a spiritual warzone. Therefore you can expect some of everything…   However, the battle is not ours.  We are to remain alert and  daily adorned within the spiritual armor. Regardless of what the world is doing;  We know that His precious  Holy Spirit can help us 24/7.  Thank God for Christ Jesus! There are many benefits in learning how to embrace and implement  the Fruit of God’s Spirit within  your marriage. So now let’s move towards learning how to embrace gentleness…
