Msg #1836 A Marriage Relationship With God?

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

The love, security and significance humans find in a Godly marriage prepares the heart, awakens the spirit, and tempers the soul for the type of relationship that our Creator desires to have with men. Genesis 2 tells us “it is not good that man should be alone” and goes on to describe the “appropriate-helper” that God made for him. In verse 24 God clarifies that marriage is 1) to from a new family relationship, 2) for one man and one woman, and 3) the forsaking of all others. Marriage is 4) to be “until death do us part,” and 5) a means of procreation where a mature, loving, faithful, and stable relationship provides the environment for rearing Godly children. So too, in our relationship with God, it is not good that man should be alone. 1) God pleads that we enter into this new “family” relationship “Come now, let us reason together” (Isa. 1:18). 2) “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other.... Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Matt. 6:24). “The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might” (Deut. 6:4-5). 3) “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3), because he is a Jealous God (34:14). 4) “For he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Heb 13:5). And for Christian procreation, 5) Preach the gospel to every creature... baptizing them … and teaching them to observe... (Matt.28:18-20, Mark16:15, Luke24:46-48, John20:21, Acts1:8, Rom.1:16). Yet only 5% of Christians ever lead a soul to Christ! With these five parallels we should take stock of marriage, and of our relationship with the Lord our God.
