LAWS OF MARRIAGE #1: PURPOSE (2) - Genesis 2:7-9; 15-18



Don’t abuse your marriage! Marriage was not made for sex. Sex is only a benefit of marriage, not its sole purpose. Imagine for a minute what would happen if one of the partners in a marriage had something happen to him or her that makes it impossible to have sex anymore. Should they get divorced? Until you demystify sex, you will keep getting into trouble on the basis of sex. Some people say, “Well, the reason for marriage is to have children,” and they go on to have fifteen children. In fact, there are some men who have 50 children; such men will usually not truly know any of those children. He travelled to different countries and so he has them all over the place. The children are the ones that are introducing themselves to their father by saying, “So and so is my mother.” What a pity!
Why did God bring a man and his wife together? Why did God plan that marriage should be monogamous? When it comes to producing children in the right marriage, God is looking for a seed. A right marriage is the closest thing to produce a saint without being born-again.
Of all the laws of marriage, I believe that the law of purpose is the most pivotal. This is because before you start praying, you need to know why you are praying; you need to be clear about what you are looking for. When I was praying for a life partner like every other young man, I wanted to have a beautiful wife but when God showed His purpose for my life, it dawned on me that I needed more than a beautiful wife to handle it.


PRAYERDear Lord, help me to discover the purpose for which you’ve placed me and my spouse here on earth. Amen.
