TO HAVE AND TO HOLD (2)

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*TO HAVE AND TO HOLD (2)*


*Scripture Treasure.*

Eph 5:21, 22, 24 *Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.*

*Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.*

*Therefore, as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

Plan to succeed. Do not plan to fail.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

The Church must teach her hearers, the hardness of not just a soldier but a good soldier.

Paul implied in 2 Tim 2:2 that as much as we teach enjoyment, we must remember endurance. It says *"....endure hardness as a good soldier..."*

In every area we find ourselves, we must not lose the vision of Christ for us as good soldiers.

There is no true child of God that does not endure.

The human mind loves comfort and convenience, but endurance, longsuffering, patience, and waiting are all virtues that run alongside our peace and enjoyment.

Do not go into marriage planning to fail.

Whosoever teaches you to set out a plan by which one party owns or will own certain assets on a future breakdown of the marriage, is in error, no matter the number of followers he/she commands.

Avoid popular teachings. Embrace peculiar teachings of marriage as set by God and faithful preachers.

The jet age of modernization has destroyed the basic foundation of holy matrimony because modernization has been badly handled, misconceived, and confused.

Besides, God is ancient of days, and He is also the beginning of all things. He makes things new. God can never be out of time. No one can be more modern than God, and neither can he be older than Him.

Be careful of philosophy. There were and still are great philosophical thinkers. Their wisdom can never match God's.

As a youth, you will grow just like every grown-up elderly person has passed through youthful stages to elders.

No one can know more than God.

People say things that justify their sinful and erroneous lives and persuade others to do the same.

If you are able to share your body with your husband/wife, what more should you not share with him/her?

Everyone is wise in his/her eyes concerning what they believe. They make God's word appear foolish and unsuitable for translation.

Whatever people say they believe should be compared to what God says and want us to believe. What people say may become a popular and well acceptable saying, but if it is against the trust of any form among couples, it is to induce self afflicted pains and curses to be regretted later.

These kinds of views jeopardize your peaceful coexistence as a couple.

This plan will condition your heart, and you will find yourself planning without the knowledge of your partner, though you may claim to have both agreed. You will gradually become untransparent in more areas than usual and become isolated from each other. This will eventually result in ending the marriage, because *"...as a man thinketh in his heart so he is"* Prov 23:7.

You can invest in each other's lives. The husband or wife could buy investment in the name of the partner in joyful harmony, and this can be in the common interest of both.

To build a possession for yourself in the case of an eventual breakup is calling the shots, and it will happen.

Live together to please God, live together as couples in the fear of God.

You are made for each other, not against each other. Your marriage is in the interest of both of you, so glorify God.

Live to have and to hold each other!


*Remorse corner.*

The more uninteresting, unabiding and foolish people make God's word the wiser God's word becomes *Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.* 1 Cor 1:25.


*Call to Word action.*

Eph 5:28 *So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.*

*He that loveth his wife loveth himself.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

When couples submit themselves one to another, they are submitting in the fear of God Himself.


*Prayer.*

Lord, help me to love my husband/wife. Let us both submit ourselves to one another in the fear of the Lord, in Jesus name.


Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.


God bless you.
