Ho To Build A Strong Marriage

(Gen. 2:24) “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” God describes the union between a man and wife as “one flesh.” Meaning that they are supposed to be inseparable and working together as a team. Therefore, in life the only thing that can destroy a marriage is when one or both become selfish and disobedient to God. The following are some ways that will help build a strong marriage: 1) Both need to obey God’s delegated authority . Since God is the creator and designer of all things, He has the right to set the rules in the home, and so He did when He placed the man in charge and the woman under his authority. This is not to say that he is a better creation, or smarter, but rather it just means that both are to obey God’s will. 2) The husband must love like Christ. He must learn to practice self-less love, and to love her as Christ loves the church. How?  By honoring her above himself, and to look for ways to make her feel special, secure and happy. Which involves his participation both spiritually, and physically. 3) The woman must learn submission. This concept is not very popular today to the modern woman. Even so, God still commands her to be submissive “in everything,” and “as unto the Lord.” God did not create the woman to be a slave, nor is  she  inferior to him.  God just intended her to be man’s completer in life, not his competitor!

Faith That Removes Mountains

(Mark 11:23) "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith."Over a hundred years ago, the great evangelist Dr. R. A. Torrey told the story of one little church in Maine that was dead spiritually. In fact, most of the churches in that town were pretty dead, but in this one particular church a few of its godly men decided to petition God for a miracle, and so they said, "here we are, uneducated laymen, but let us form a praying band, and center our prayers on the salvation of one man." So, they decided on one of the hardest men in town, a hopeless drunkard, and centered their prayers on him. To their amazement in just a week this man was converted. Seeing therefore the impossible become possible, they began to pray for another, and then another, unti…

What Does God Expect Of Fathers

(Deut. 6:5-7) “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children…” Before Israel went in to posses the Promised Land, the Lord warned Israel’s leadership of the importance of the above commandments. 1) To Love God first above all. God wanted the Fathers of Israel to give first place in the hearts to Him. Why?  Because He knew how quickly they would forget Him if they didn’t. If the fathers forget so will the family; therefore God commanded them to make God the Lord of their heart, soul, and might. 2) To Know the Word of God.  How can a father teach to his family that which he knows not himself? How sad it is when the leadership of the home does not know or study what they are to live and teach. Therefore, God expects fathers to study the Word so that the Word directs the home and not the world. 3) To Tea…

Living Without Honor

(Mark 6:4-5) "But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them." In the above story, Jesus went home to his home town where people knew him and saw him grow up. Everywhere else that he went people followed, and as a result, great miracles happened but in his own hometown not much happened because of their unbelief.Jesus wanted his disciples to understand this great truth. You see, people that know us the best have the hardest time with us changing after salvation because they judge us by the past and not the present. When we get saved, we become new creatures in Christ (2 Cor. 5: 17)."Old things are passed away, and behold all things are become new." It takes a while for "kin" and friends to see that we are different, because they knew us before. Therefore "our hon…
