Investing In Our Marriage: Part 1

The first thing we can do to demonstrate to God that we are investing in our marriage is: Don’t Be So Quick To Give Up On Our Marriage. Christians are divorcing or separating at a rate that’s greater than those in the world. What’s up with that! What if God had given up on us during all the times we messed up; not only when we where in the world, but since we’ve been saved! But because we serve a God that is full of grace and mercy, He is ready to forgive us when we mess up time and time again.
In marriage we must understand that there will be times that our spouse messes up, but instead of walking away from the marriage, throwing in the towel and giving up, we must hold onto our marriage because (Ecclesiastes 4:12) says “A threefold cord is not quickly broken”. Thus, when the husband and wife are submitted to the third man of the Godhead (the Holy Spirit) that threefold cord is hard to break. That cord might bend but it won’t break. That cord might be stretched to the brink of popping, but because it’s held together by the hands of God, it will maintain strength under challenge and duress. A threefold cord is indestructible but when it’s just us two that make up the cord, (without Jesus) the cord can be broken. Therefore, keep God at the forefront of your marriage.
God Bless You
