Saturday January 17, 2015 “”Marriage is Sacred”

Matthew 5:31-32     31 “Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.
    Jesus teaches us here the sanctity of marriage and the permanence of the unity created when two become one. The Lord tells us that adultery and death alone dissolves this powerful bond called marriage. Marriage, we are told in Ephesians chapter 5, can be compared to the relationship between Christ and the church. We all agree it is painful to see a Christian walk away from Christ and the person that departs from Christ lives a life of misery. Couples who divorce for reasons other than adultery many times suffer the same misery.
Pray today that Christians in America lead the way in restoring the sanctity of marriage by humbling themselves and doing their best to preserve and strengthen their marriage.
