In the mind of God, why exactly do we get married? This is a question that we can ask ourselves in principle before getting married, but also afterwards so as not to lose the vision of God, and the primary objective of marriage. But what could we answer to this question, because we must have good motivations to get married at the risk of ruining his marriage.
3. For the glory of God.
Marriage is a divine institution. Nowadays, it is really important to clarify, we reduce marriage to celebration, to party, as certain reality TV shows make us understand which, through their broadcasts, trivialize and distort marriage. Before being a celebration, and a happy day, or even an act to be performed before civil authorities, it is above all a creation of God. Our God is a Holy, Holy, Holy God, we cannot under any circumstances, note a dress or even the party, or create a flame between two single people, create games around the love and fidelity of a couple or whatever... Marriage deserves to be respected and not used to have more fans on its social media pages or even as a marketing promotion. Let's not exploit what God considers sacred!
Man, by asking for marriage for all, for example, distorts the image to which God aspired for humanity.
Genesis 2 v 18 (KJV) “And the LORD God said, It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper like him. »
When He said this, He created the one Adam named Eve. Eve means mother of all living, or life, or woman. By, we can agree that according to the Holy Bible, God calls the union between a man and a woman and nothing else. Regarding these acts, even though same-sex marriage has been legalized in some countries, God for His part will not accept it. never.
Here is the truth: Romans 1 v 26-27 (Darby) “Therefore God gave them up to infamous passions, for their wives changed the natural use into that which is against nature; and men also alike, leaving the natural use of woman, kindled in their lust for one another, committing infamy, male with male, and receiving in themselves due recompense for their misguidance . »
We may disagree with the Word of God, it never takes away the fact that it is the only and entire truth. Let's take an example, 1 + 1 = 2 whether you accept it or not, this rule is true, you can teach your children that 1 + 1 is 10, they will learn it and remember it but that does not remove that is not the truth. It is your truth and it is the one that you have chosen to teach to whoever you want, but you will not be able to change the mathematical laws.
For the Holy Bible, it's the same thing, you can eliminate verses, turn a deaf ear, bury your head in the sand, "marry" in a church, if you are of the same sex, this is an abomination for God. Eternal. Let us not lose sight of the fact that God loves sinners and that is why He sent Jesus Christ, but He abhors sin and He does not adhere to it in any way and under no pretext or excuse! Starting from the principle that if we marry, it is above all to honor the Heavenly Father, we cannot adhere to such practices, nor encourage them.
Colossians 3:17 (KJV): “And whatever you do, word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. "
Toujours dans l'idée de plaire à Dieu, se marier c'est être en accord avec Christ car, nous ne pouvons pas nous dire Christians, disciples de Jésus-Christ et vivre dans le concubinage car cela sous entend une situation d'impudicité, de fornication.
1 Corinthians 6:9 & 10 (Darby): “Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Make no mistake about it: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor those who deceive themselves with men, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor outrageous, nor robbers, shall inherit the Kingdom of God. »
Everything we do we must do in order to glorify the sweet and precious name of Jesus Christ.
It is important to say that if you find yourself in one of the situations mentioned above, it is not too late, God forgive you if you sincerely repent, turn from those ways that do not glorify Him, and commit to follow His commandments. It is still an immense grace that God gives us!
1 Corinthians 6 v 11 (Darby): “And some of you were such; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. »
This institution is both a mystery and a revelation. Yes these two words seem so opposite and yet… It is the strict truth. A mystery because, ultimately, marriage is the image of the future coming of Christ to marry his fiancée: the Church. So there are elements that we don't have entirely on marriage. And on the other hand, it's a revelation because every day, God teaches us in the school of marriage, what he expects from the bride and groom. Indeed, marriage is one of the means that God uses so that we are in His image.
