Repair Your Marriage God's Way: We use salt because it gives our food a better flavor, without it, the taste is just bland. A Christian Marriage, without Jesus Christ at the center of every decision, reminds of a meal that is prepared without salt. Everything after a while just becomes routine and bland.
Matthew 5:13 Jesus says: 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Unfortunately many Christian Marriages have now become a mockery, because we say one thing and do another. If you speak Christ, then live Christ.
Many Christian Marriages have failed because after a while, instead of allowing Jesus to be your guide you start doing it your self.
Don't ever forget what Jesus said in John 14:6 He said...... I am the way, the truth, and the life:
As Christians, when you find that your marriage getting into trouble, always seek wise counsel. Go to Jesus Christ first. Should you need additional help, then don't hesitate to ask your Heavenly Father first. He will guide you to the right people who will be a blessing to you by pointing you back to the real source.... Jesus Christ.
Christians: Most foods require salt for better taste: Your Christian marriage cannot survive without Jesus Christ:
Put JESUS CHRIST back into your marriage for everything, and watch the difference He makes in your daily lives. With Christ at the center, you will enjoy your marriage instead of just enduring it.
Our marriage is no different from any other christian marriage. The one one thing we've got going for us, is we have never lost sight of the one who brought us together.
When things go wrong we go back to the source for guidance. His name is Jesus.
When our favorite plant is dying, the first two things we think of doing, is to give it water and sunlight.
If you have entered into a Christian marriage and GOD is not the director.. you have already failed.
When our marriage is dying, as Christians we must never forget our source, the word. When we apply the word it allows God to breathe life back into our marriage.
He sent me Roses on our Wedding Day:
On our wedding day, before I met my husband at the church, he surprised me with a dozen red roses. He sent them directly to the house. What a difference it made. If I had any doubts that morning, those red roses made me forget everything else. I met him at the altar with such peace in my heart.
I knew I was making the right choice that day because Jesus was at the center of everything.
And if that was not enough, my heavenly father answered a secret prayer that I was carrying in my heart for many years. Funny enough I thought it would ever happen.
But after we got married, my husband and I started talking, when we both realize we had the same desire. We both wanted to dedicate the entire day to GOD before coming together as man and wife. What a surprise that was for both of us. His prayer was answered and so was mine. Because we both desired the same thing, GOD made our first day easy.
Don't allow the negative things of life into your marriage. A Christian Marriage is sacred and should remain that way. We all make mistakes, but we must learn to forgive and don't dwell on the negative past.
Healing starts with forgiveness: As Jesus said in....Matthew 6:14-15 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
If you cannot forgive your spouse, regardless of what might have happened, don't try leaving with unforgiveness in your heart and start another marriage on that foundation.
This is what the bible says in: Matthew 7:24-27 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. If Christ is not guiding your marriage daily. Then someone else will. Before you know it, the devil will be running rampant all over your marriage. And I guarantee you, if the devil lingers long enough he will snuff our every bit of laughter you both ever had.
To have good laughter in our marriage we must have joy. Joy is the foundation for happiness and this joy is founded in Jesus Christ.
Our first 4 years was bitter - sweet but we never questioned our relationship if we made the right choice or not, we just kept on walking with Jesus.
We made a vow to each other, for better or for worse. A commitment is a commitment and I believe that when we walk away from our commitment, to me it shows a sign of weakness.
Please note I am not referring to all marriages. But for Christian marriages, if we say that GOD has joined us together, and then walk away from it. That leaves me thinking.
Jesus stood the ultimate test of times. He stayed committed it was not easy for him to allow those people to whip Him, imprisoned Him, mock Him, nail Him to wood. Then stood by and watched Him die.
If at all possible, it may very well be cheaper to repair what you have, than to start all over again. Seek GOD first on every decision.
Let's look at Mary & Joseph a little more closely.
Joseph listened and also obeyed the voice of God, concerning his wife. No one said the path way to a successful marriage would be easy. But if Jesus Christ leads the way, there will be no room for failure.
Genesis 1:18-20, 24-25 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.
God was the one who told Joseph it was ok to marry Mary, in spite of the obvious, she was pregnant and the child was not his. What I have learnt from this is a Christian marriage is not based on how we view the other person but how GOD sees them. What Joseph was thinking and what GOD knew were too different things. God had to intervene and intercept his thoughts before he made the wrong choice.
GOD knew the sincerity and the pureness of Mary's heart, even though her outward circumstances was saying something totally different.
When you are facing tough times in your marriage, allow GOD to intercept your thoughts, and when He does, listen and be obedient to His voice. Being stubborn is just foolish pride, that will eventually ruin your Christian marriage in the end.
If your marriage is in distress, let Jesus fix it for you.
