Topic:- An Argument Between Father And Son On Marriage

Text:- 1 Corinthians 13:13

What Nonsense…!? I Can’t Say Sorry for Nothing.
Son: Dad, I want to get married.
Dad: First, Tell me you are sorry!
Son: For what?
Dad: Say sorry! The father repeated the second time.
Son: But for what? What did I do? Son replied.
Dad: Just say sorry!
Son: But, What have I done wrong?
Dad: I said, say sorry!
Son: Why?
Dad: Say Sorry!
Son: Please. Just tell me why?!
Dad: Say sorry.
Son: Ok Dad, I am sorry!
Dad: Uhun.. You’ve just qualified for Marriage!
Dad: When you learn to Say Sorry for No Reason At All! Then you’re ready to get married!
Dad: I can never forget this. It was in Rev Omar Pela’s Church. He told a story of how on a particular morning,
his wife stormed into the room with a moody look on her face. Being a gentleman, he asked, Sweetheart what’s wrong? She said, Nothing! [You know when a lady tells u.. Nothing. irk!].
So He impressed further, You don’t sound fine dear.. She replied, I said I’m fine! He said at that moment he tried to replay in his head. [If there was any misunderstanding previously. He couldn’t remember any]. So, not to cause any
tension at all, he decided to continue his study in Church office.
As he picked the car keys to leave, the wife blurted.. So you are going to leave without showing concern or care?
He said at that point he was angry & shouted. Did I not ask you? Wat else do you want me to do. So he slammed the door and left.
On getting to the car downstairs, about to start the car.. The Holy spirit asked him, if someone
passes by now and mistakenly hit his leg on a stone, what would you say? He replied, I will tell the person sorry.
The Holy spirit asked again, did you cause the person to hit his/her leg on the stone? He said No!
Then why would you say sorry for what you didn’t cause? He said instantly he got the message the Holy Spirit was trying to pass across. [That you don’t have to be the cause to say Sorry].
So he got back upstairs, his wife looking at him angrily..Then he said, “Sweetheart, I’m sorry.” She just wrapped her arm around him and sobs.
Son: [The son concluded on the conversation which he started with his father]. “What a wonder!” He said, and left speechless and wondering!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
