Friday, September 14th

Matthew 19:6
“So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

In life, God has ordained two covenant relationships, the first is your relationship with Him, the second is your relationship with your spouse. When you are born again the Holy Spirit takes up residency within your spirit and the Lord considers you one with Him for eternity. You’re covenant bond is sealed and ratified by the shed blood of Jesus. When you establish the covenant of marriage with your spouse the Lord sees you as one because the covenant you made was not only with your husband or wife but with Lord as well. The Bible even goes onto say in Ephesians 5 that the marriage relationship is an example of Christ and the Church. This raises the question of fidelity when it comes to the confidentiality of the marriage relationship. Too many people do not look to their spouse as their first source of support and encouragement. Men have their buddies and women have their girl friends with whom they seek advice and support for the very issues that affect their homes. If you are one, there should be nothing that is hidden from the other. There shouldn’t be things that your friends know about you that your spouse doesn’t. If you’re married, you have been blessed with an eternal covenant partner who should know you more intimately than anyone else. Anything less than complete disclosure and honesty is a violation of that covenant. If you have things out of order this weakens your relationship severely. Is your spouse your closest confidant? If you can’t answer quickly and emphatically, “Yes!”, then ask the Lord to help you start making things right. You will soon begin to see greater fulfillment from your marriage the you ever thought possible. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
