Successful Marriage as per God's Plan Successful Marriage as per God's Plan Presentation Transcript

  • SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE AS PER GOD'S PLAN (Genesis 2:24-25) 13 August 20131
  • Genesis 2:24-25 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed”.(KJV) 13 August 20132
  • Genesis 2:24-25 “Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and embraces his wife. They become one flesh. The two of them, the Man and his Wife, were naked, but they felt no shame”.(MSG) 13 August 20133
  • "The concept of traditional marriage and traditional family ties is antiquated. So we must form relationships that are more in step with our times." 13 August 20134
  • Is that really true? I suggest that we need to go back to the blueprint and read again the words of the architect who designed marriage in the first place and find out what He has to say about it. 13 August 20135
  • "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.” (Genesis 2:24-25) 13 August 20136
  • The following issues must be handled very well as God intended as He set up the Marriage institution in Genesis 2:24-25 1. Severance 2. Permanence 3. Unity 4. Intimacy Let us look at each of the above:-13 August 20137
  • 1. SEVERANCE "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother..." 13 August 20138
  • There must be a leaving of the old home - the old family ties - the old securities - the old protection - the old financial dependence upon mother and father - and the beginning of a new home. 13 August 20139
  • I have seen a lot of problems in marriage arise simply because severance didn't take place. Yet God says a severance must take place. 13 August 201310
  • 2. PERMANENCE "…and shall cleave unto his wife." 13 August 201311
  • The word "cleave" is an interesting word. It means to "glue one thing to another to form a permanent bond." 13 August 201312
  • "Until death do us part" That becomes not only a pledge to each other – it becomes a pledge to Almighty God in heaven. 13 August 201313
  • I am afraid that some people getting married think, "I will be your husband or wife as long as we have mutual interests - or as long as other things don't interfere - or as long as we get along with one another." 13 August 201314
  • "There is one thing that should never be started prematurely and that is divorce”. 13 August 201315
  • 3. UNITY "...and they will become one flesh..." 13 August 201316
  • Unity forms and deepens as they share the events of life - both good and bad - with each other. It doesn't happen instantly. 13 August 201317
  • 4. INTIMACY "The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame." 13 August 201318
  • Most of us have a basic need for that kind of intimacy with another human being. And when we seem to be unsuccessful in finding it within the bonds of marriage, we search for cheap substitutes. 13 August 201319
