What Is the Christian Perspective about Marriage?
Marriage is only between a man and a woman. The two shall become one and multiply! Husbands are to love their wives as the Lord loves His church (Ephesians 5:25-33). Women are to submit to their husbands (Ephesians 5:22-33).
Men and women are to honor one another, deeply care for each other, and enjoy serving. Marriage is a working relationship as well as a friendship. It can get confusing, tangled up in foolish arguments and disappointments.
We are to put God first in our marriage. God is faithful to help us in moments of frustrations, brokenness, and grief. He fills us with His spirit and helps us love one another better. Marriage is a partnership and God has designed us to work things out accordingly to His word. Two wrongs never make a right. Marriage requires lots of grace and forgiveness. Mistakes are bound to happen and it’s pretty much a guarantee that there will be disagreements.
Life doesn’t come easy to those who are Christians. As a matter of fact life usually gets harder when one becomes a Christian. It’s important to surround yourself with friends who are Christians and can support you in your walk.
We have hope in Jesus and a life that is everlasting and fulfilling. We understand the beauty of God’s design when we pay attention to the things He does for us. He sent His Son to give us life and our life is secure because of Jesus.
”Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35 ESV)
Becoming a Christian in this life is learning to know God and experience His love. You can ask Jesus into your heart today. He will change your heart and open your eyes to truth.
Here are some prayers for you to choose from when you are ready to confess your sins and ask Christ into your life!
Life is all about knowing God, experiencing His beauty and divine purpose, His miracles, and Creation. Life happens when a baby is born and a family story unfolds. It’s when a husband and wife become one. Life is experiencing genuine thankfulness, healing, spiritual gifts and anointing from the Holy Spirit. Life is Heaven on earth and discovering the supernatural. Life is being a temple for the Holy Spirit to live. Jesus is life.
