God’s Math 01-30-20

Good day and praise Go for the wonders of life He bestows on us. Today we are going to get schooled on marriage the way God designed it.

Today’s Prayer

Dear heavenly Father, I come before you today on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to confirm that each of us is a living breathing temple produced by you and as such we should be doing our best to not defile ourselves. I ask that you would prompt each of us as needed to accomplish this task. May we eat, drink, and care for our bodies in the way that brings honor to you. In the matchless name of Jesus I pray, Amen

Let’s eat.

God’s Math

In God’s math, one plus one equals one; here’s proof.

Matthew 19:6 tells us “Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” 

Do you know what’s wrong with many marriages? Husbands treat their wives like a new car. When it’s new, he shows it off; and then when it gets old and the paint fades a little bit, he wants to trade her in for a new model.

The Bible compares a husband’s position in a home to the role of Christ in His Church. Jesus served the church and gave His life for her. When you come to the marriage altar, that’s what you do. You die! (You didn’t realize that, did you?) A marriage is death to the old life. You’re no longer single. There’s a new person, for the two are now one. A husband is to take upon himself the form of a servant. He is to lead by loving. He does not consider his welfare primarily; he considers her welfare in all of his decisions.

Are you the strong, independent type? Then you’re not like Jesus, who shared unconditionally and sacrificially with you.

If you are a married man, you are to satisfy the needs of your wife and share your life with her. That means all you are and all you have is for her! God’s math for marriage is: One plus one equals one. There’s no part of our lives that we do not share.

This week, make it a priority to do or give something sacrificially to your wife. It may be your time. It may be a possession. It may be a word of encouragement that she needs. That’s your assignment!

Quote of the Day

It is not what I do that matters, but what a sovereign God chooses to do through me. God does not want worldly successes, He wants me. He wants my heart in submission to Him. Life is not just a few years to spend on self indulgence and career advancement. It is a privilege, a responsibility, a stewardship to be lived according to a much higher calling, God’s calling. This alone gives true meaning to life.
