Saturday 18th April 2010 Devotion
Scripture:- 1 Corinthians 7:1-20
Topic:- What You Should Know About Marriage
Text:- Hebrews 13:4
A. Marriage is a School where you get the Certificate before you start:
A school where you will never graduate. A school without a break or a free period. A school where no one is allowed to drop out. A school which you will have to attend every day of your life. A school where there is no sick leave or holidays.
B. A school founded by God:
On the foundation of love. The walls are made out of trust. The door made out of acceptance. The windows made out of understanding. The furniture made out of blessing. The roof made out of faith before you forget.
You are just a student not the principal, God is the Principal. Even in times of storms, don’t be unwise and run outside, remember this school is the safest place to be.
Never go to sleep before completing your assignments for the day Never forget the C-word, Communicate, communicate, communicate to your classmate and to the Principal if you find out something in your classmate (spouse) that you do not appreciate.
Remember your classmate is also just a student not a graduate, God is not finished with him/her yet. So take it as a challenge and work on it together.
Do not forget to study, study, study the Holy Book (the main textbook in this school), Start each day with a sacred assembly and end it the same way.
Sometimes you will feel like not attending classes, yet you have to. When tempted to quit find courage and continue. Some tests and exams may be tough but remember the Principal knows how much you can bear. But still it is a school better than any other, it is one of the best schools on earth; joy, peace and happiness accompany each lessons of the day. Different subjects are offered in this school, yet love is the major subject.
After all the years of theorizing about it, now you have a chance to practice it. To be loved is a good thing, but to love is a greatest privilege of them all. Marriage is a place of love, so love your spouse.
Prayer Point:- I command love, understanding and communication will be seen with you and your spouse henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Blessed Saturday!
