You cannot impose another set of laws on a game that already has its own laws. Pains in marriage are warning signal of imposing wrong rules in marriage. The Institution of marriage has more laws than that of love. It is better for a man to marry a woman that is five years younger than one who is older. A man must carry and develop leadership force and capacity. If a man does not have the leadership capacity and development to handle his wife, he will be sowing the seed of divorce. Love will not make up for the shortages that come from foolish decisions made by a man that his wife is wiser than. A pastor cannot apply the rule of submission in this case because after some time the woman will drop the Bible. Submission by a wife will require a leadership force in place in the husband. There is a difference between a Christian marriage and other marriages. It is like a Christian singing gospel music and a worldly musician singing gospel music. It takes more than a fine face to make marriage work. You may be born again and not have a Christian marriage, but an unbeliever may submit to the laws instituted by God and enjoy his marriage.
Below are some of the Laws of Marriage I will be sharing with you today.
The Law of The WORD of GOD: Every issue in marriage can be handled by the word of God. The word of God must be the beginning and ending of every issue in that marriage. This is a major decision that everyone in marriage must make – to operate marriage by the Law of the Word of God.
The Law of LORDSHIP: Jesus must be the LORD of the life of the individuals involved in marriage. You should trust JESUS in each other. An individual will be a victim if the other partner starts leaving Jesus. You can’t monitor or restrict a man from sinning. It is the fear of the Lord that keeps him from sin.
The Law of PURPOSE: You must understand God’s purpose for marriage. The major help an individual needs to make it in life will be in his spouse. God brings differences together. What I have and what I lack. Respect flows along the channels of differences and not similarity. It is not pride to ask for help. It is an attack from the devil to need help and not know it.
Prayer: Father, I ask for the anointing of the Laws of marriage to rest on me in applying the Law of the Word of God, Lordship and Purpose to my union and get the best of God out of my home in Jesus’ name. Amen.
