Teaching on:

HUSBAND AND WIFE RELATIONSHIP

TEXT: Genesis 2:24

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

INTRO:

We cannot have a strong nation (or a strong anything for that matter) without strong people…

And we cannot have a strong people without strong families…

And the bottom line is this: We cannot have strong families without strong marriages.

I want to focus my teaching tonight on Husband and Wife Relationship…

Because that’s basically what marriage is…

Marriage is the relationship between a man and his wife…

Not a man and his mistress…

Not a man and his secretary or his sister in-law…

Not a sugar daddy and a girl old enough to be his daughter or grand daughter…

Not between girlfriend and boyfriend…

Not even between a man and his fiancée – because courtship is not marriage…

Marriage begins after wedding…Marriage is life after wedding…

And what your life turns out to be after wedding, and till you leave this earth, will depend on what your marriage turns out to be…whether you know it or not.

Know, also, that it is marriage that gives birth to a family…

Exodus 2:2 – TLB

“About this time, a man and woman from the tribe of Levi got married.

The woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son…”

So, it is also the well-being of your marriage that will determine the well-being of the family you’re raising…The two are inseparable…

In Malachi 2:14-16 [MSG], God said:

“…God was there as a witness when you spoke your marriage vows to your young bride, and now you’ve broken those vows, broken the faith-bond with your vowed companion, your covenant wife.

God, not you, made marriage. His Spirit inhabits even the smallest details of marriage. And what does he want from marriage? Children of God, that’s what. So guard the spirit of marriage within you. Don’t cheat on your spouse.

I hate divorce,” says the God of Israel…I hate the violent dismembering of the ‘one flesh’ of marriage.” So watch yourselves. Don’t let your guard down. Don’t cheat.

>So you see, you can not separate your married life from your family life…

>You cannot be careless with your marriage…And then expect to have a good family…

Psalm 11:3 says,- “If the foundation be destroyed…”

>It’s not your good job, business, career or bank account that will give you a strong and healthy family…It’s your marriage.

>Two distinct individuals (a male and a female)…begin life together on their wedding day…on a journey to the place of one flesh…

>That journey is what is called “marriage”…

>So, marriage is a process…a process that requires a very strong partnership between the two individuals…(it’s like grafting, a merger)…

>This is where most couples miss it…They fail to understand that marriage is not a one man show…

>Each of the two key players in marriage has his or her own peculiar assignment/roles and responsibilities in the marriage, which will ensure the success of the marriage…

And it is how each one plays out his/her role and responsibilities that determines whether the marriage succeeds or not…and also determines the quality of family life in that home…
