HOST: Michael Whitworth
“It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Covenant. Commitment. These are words that have a great deal of meaning and importance in the mind of God. They are words that are often used in describing our relationship with Him, and they are also words used to describe the relationship that God desires to exist in marriage. When God joins a man and woman in marriage, His intent is for that bond to last a lifetime—through thick and thin, good times and bad, “till death do us part.” But marriage in our world today often does not follow God’s pattern or will. “Till death do us part” has become “till the relationship is no longer mutually satisfying.” But despite our world’s attitude toward marriage, God’s is still the same. He still desires for marriage to be a lasting covenant in which two people commit to loving and caring for each other for life. What a beautiful plan God has given us!
Why do you think that commitment in marriage is so important to God?
Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
