Married couples

images2Marriage is great. Why? God intended it to be so when He officiated the first marriage on earth. He then blessed it. This is how it happened:

Gen 2:21 And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof:
Gen 2:22 and the rib, which Jehovah God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Gen 2:23 And the man 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.
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

God saw that man was lonely and He said that was not good. He then made man a helpmet i.e. someone suitable for him. God brought the woman to the man (Adam). What we see here is that man got excited when meeting the woman. He just knew that she was meant for him. That is how the first marriage was started.

Spouses therefore need to build their marriages. They must commit to it so it can be a beautiful one and enjoyable. Marriage should not be endured but it must be enjoyed. We therefore realize that God was the foundation of marriage. If we want to enjoy it today, let us make God be the foundation even today.
