He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:4-6

Marriage is Important

The benefits of marriage, as established by many social researchers through to the present time, are widely and regularly published. We present some of these in “Some Benefits of Marriage” but here we look at the Importance of Marriage primarily from the perspective of Scripture.

God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)
Right from the start God made men and women equal, in “the image of God” but with complimentary differences as men and women.

On the creation of man God placed him in the garden and gave him His vision for life in the world that He, God had created. God then saw that something was incomplete and said “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him” (Genesis 2:18). God saw that it was not good for the first man, and for most of us, to be left by himself. God then created/crafted woman out of the rib of that first man ( Genesis 2:21-22). God presented and entrusted this remarkable gift to the man. God had instituted what we know as marriage. A man and a woman becoming one new entity……..

Prayer for Marriage ~ February

  • Pray for the church and all who are in positions of leadership in it that they would know and understand the Word of God and its infalability. Pray that all might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, walking worthy of the Lord.(Col 1:9-10). Please pray for the re-establishing of churches as effective community and family connecting centres.
  • Pray for all married couples in the church – that they would make their relationship with their spouse a priority in their lives, leading by example. Mat 6:33. That the leaders would teach the Word of the Lord boldly & plainly and their messages would not be compromised by worldly doctrines or political correctness.
  • Thank God for the many believers, including chaplains, who have been at work ministering to those affected by drought, flood, Covid19 and fire. Pray that they will continue to walk in health, prosper and radiate their love of the Lord, bringing hope to needy people. Pray that they would trust the Lord and cast any cares upon Him.
  • Pray for all church members that they would love each other unconditionally whilst not condoning sinful behaviour. 1 Cor 13:7. That they would respect one another and honour the leadership (Rom 13:6), in a true spirit of humility Phil 2:3. That they would make the time truely to care for one another, whether in-person or through other means. That they would have thankful hearts that are quick to forgive. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

“God is guiding your marriage. Marriage is more than your love for each other. It has a higher dignity and power, for it is God’s holy ordinance, through which He wills to perpetuate the human race till the end of time.
In your love you see only your two selves in the world, but in marriage you are a link in the chain of the generations, which God causes to come and to pass away to His glory, and calls into His kingdom. In your love you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed at a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind. Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal—it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, and not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins you together in the sight of God and man.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
