Deeper In Marriage

Marriage was God's Idea
Today my daughter Judie and I visited Christian Faith Center, where Pastor John and his wife Heidi teamed up to share the Valentines message.  The scripture began with

Genesis 2:21-25 (NKJV)
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 

23 And Adam said:  “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.  25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
The outline on the bulletin read:

1.     To grow deeper in marriage, we must cleave (be joined) to one another.

2.     To grow deeper in marriage, we must communicate with one another.

3.     To grow deeper in marriage, we must respect, honor, trust, support, both be in subjection to one another.

In a marriage we must celebrate one another, dream together, be likeminded read the Bible and pray together.

Mark 10:7-8 (KJV)
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

Ephesians 5:31King James Version (KJV)

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Marriage between "a man and a woman" is a Holy Union.  To become "Husband and Wife" was God’s idea.

Marriage is a symbol of the church the Bride of Christ Jesus, and one of these days, perhaps very soon there will be in Heaven, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Do you have your invitation ready?  Be sure to R.S.V.P.

I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.


  1. RSVP!
    God is so awesome. I can't wait to join the wedding feast! I'm ready for the Groom.

  2. Great scripture verses for Valentine's Day Weekend!

  3. All I can say is that our world has changed. Maybe I am reading this wrong, but, in the past, when men were the truly ones in charge when we were made by them, now many of the women are much in charge of the world and men are dropping back. My husband is NOT like that, and I'm a very happy lady. He's kind to me, determines how the Lord wants him to step forward and what to do, but he's a truly blessing person. As I said, I might have misunderstood what you were sharing. You always do significantly well! Thanks much.

  4. Marriage is such a beautiful image. Reading the verses above I found my attention drawn to the line 'they were naked and not ashamed.' It takes courage but it's so true that there must be a willingness to be open and vulnerable with one another for a marriage to be all it can be and ultimately live up to its ultimate aim - to emulate and display the love of Christ. Thanks for sharing this :-)
