Topic: Marriage (The new norm)
Text: Genesis 2:18,
Speaker: Pastor Adesoji Oni
And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Marriage is an institution that God Himself ordained, if the woman was not needed for the survival of man, God wouldn’t have made a woman.
There are many things we don’t pay attention to when we are going to marry. Marriage today is characterized by so many things. Hebrews 13:4, Proverbs 31:10.
If you are married it means you have found a good thing, proverbs 18:22. Marriage is to be worked out, there is nothing that is so bad that God cannot find solution to.
Ungodly marriage has found their selves into Christian homes due to the world and its norm. If your family cannot give praise to God when people see it, then you need to work it out.
If you don’t love your wife to the point that you are ready to die for her, you are not her husband yet (Ephesians 5:25).
The rate of dissolution of marriages and domestic violence is rising constantly.
HOW DO WE NAVIGATE THROUGH THE UNGODLY NORM OF MARRIAGE? (Solutions to Marital Problems)
- The word of God, the word of god is a key that we need, Mathew 7:24-25. if your family would stand, you must go back to the word, 2Timothy2:19.
- In parenting, children need mother and father, Proverbs 13:1, Proverbs 15:5. You can make your children better with the trainings you give them.
- Living Arrangement.
- Sex in marriage should be sacred.
- Funding, the husband should be able to fend for His family and the woman should be able to support.
- Prayer, a family that prays together stays together.
The bottom line is that the only thing that can bring solution to marital problem is the word of God. Joshua 1:6-8.
The word will tell you what to do at the appropriate time, the word will tell you what your relationship should be with your spouse and children, the world will help you develop a good family
Ask God to give you grace to be able to maintain a good home.
