Marriage-Heb.13.4

Today I read Heb.13.4 and was thinking about Marriage…
Marriage should be honored by all,
and the marriage bed kept pure,
for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral
Should be honored by all…what an honorable thing
Designed and instituted by God
Man. Woman
Leaving father and mother
Husband. Wife
2 become 1
Companions. Friends
United though different. Completed
Enjoyment. Sex. What a gift. Miraculous
Children. What a blessing.
Christ and the Church.
What an illustration.
A mystery
Life changing
Transforming and conforming us to Jesus
Dying to self so others can live
An amazing thing
Requires a lot of work in the power of the Holy Spirit
A life long pursuit
Marriage bed kept pure
One woman man.
One man woman.
Passionate
Experimenting
Worshipful
Growing
Under attack
Many temptations
Many attempts to destroy
Anyone susceptible to adultery…sexual immorality
Must fight against with the full armor of God

Very simple. Very hard.
2 Commands
Husband love your wife as Christ loves
Wife respect your husband as the Lord
Impossible with man
All things are possible with God
Awesome and/or awful
Till death do us part
Growing
Changing
Loving
Trusting
Cultivating
Celebrating
Nurturing
Persevering
Finishing
