The Two Shall Become One

Sunday 11th October 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- 1 Corinthians 7:1-11
Topic:- The Two Shall Become One
Text:- 1 Corinthians 7:5

About to leave Mr Frank, in the presence of his two daughters, asked for erection enhancement drug like he did the first day.
The two daughters laughed but insisted that I should not give him. They said and I quote, “Daddy do you want to kill mummy? At this age,you are not tired? What you have done for 50 years?Please doctor don’t give him. Don’t let him kill mummy for us”.
The most hilarious response came from that their same mummy they thought they were protecting from ‘death’ from her husband. Mrs Cecilia said “DOCTOR DON’T MIND MY CHILDREN O, OBVIOUSLY THEY DON’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARRIAGE AND FAMILY. GIVE MY HUSBAND THE DRUG. LET HIM KILL ME”.
I laughed so much my tummy hurt. She turned to her two daughters and said ” do I come to your marriage and tell you what to do with your husband? So what concerns you people with my marriage ? So because you people are our children, you think you can come between us? You are only family members o, this marriage is between me and my husband and it is until death do us part. So you people are third party. Mind your business.”
I laughed again my tummy ached but something struck me in the way she used the two words marriage and family.
I was prompted to ask further questions. I said, “Ma, what do you mean by this is your marriage and they are just family, they can’t come and interfere in your marriage. What do you mean?”
Mr frank cut in, “Doctor marriage is a union between ONLY two people, a man and a woman,husband and his wife, full stop while family is a union among three or more people let’s say father, mother and children and others.”
Doctor, a lot of people don’t know the difference. They allowed their children to come in between them in their marriage. This is something every couple should watch out for.
You and your wife are the only two people in your marriage and everything that makes two of you happy is your business 100% .
Yes, you can take advice from your family (your children and others) but the responsibility lies in your hands both, 100%. Another great lesson learnt today again.
I gave them their sex life enhancing drug including mama’s cream. We all laughed and they bid me good bye.
As soon as this blessed, great old couple took their leave, many lessons about marriage and family started running through my unmarried mind and some of these lessons have really helped me in my marriage today. Below are they:
Lesson number 1:
Marriage is an institution created by God from the beginning for only two people. Family is only third party. They should never dictate what happens in it. They can only offer advice.
Lesson number 2:
Good health of a couple depends on so many things but greatest among them all is two of you being one in practicing a good life style and daily forgiveness together.
Lesson number 3:
No matter how old two of you are in your marriage and no matter how many children you have, don’t stop having sex together. It is a God’s gift to you both in your marriage until death do you part, and it will help hold your union together.
Lesson Number 4:
Never allow your family especially your children use divide and rule method for two of you. Always be on the same page when it comes to discipline and love of your family members especially your children.
Lesson number 5:
Encourage your children not to be secretive to one another and you be an example of this together in your day to day daily life. Our Children learn more from our lifestyle than they learn from our words.
Lesson number 6:
Respect your children’s marriages as their parents so that you can boldly question them whenever they want to interfere in yours.
Lesson number 7:
Marry your friend. When I say this I meant someone two of you flow. Marriage is a long and most times a lifetime journey. Marrying your friend will definitely make the journey fun and easier.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me and my spouse to live together in love, peace and harmony henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

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.
