Scripture of the Day - March 19, 2012

Ephesians 5:31 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.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Marriage is ordained by God. He initiated it in the garden of Eden with Adam and Eve and gave the perfect example of the importance and strength of marriage in describing the relationship between Jesus and the church. We are to follow this example and love and submit to each other just as Jesus submitted even to the cross for us.

Divorce doesn't represent God's relationship with us. He will never leave us nor forsake us, and we ought not be so willing to leave and forsake our marriage partner.

Verse 33 is the bottom line in our lives. And if we follow the bottom line we will have much happier marriages.
