Oh, how we need to see the sacredness of marriage.
His plan is that you have children and train them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (We will teach on this subject in S/S next Sunday and classes in Aud.).
His plan is that your children honor you and God.
GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR MARRIAGE 2:15.
That you may be one: walk as one, plan as one and pray as one.
That you may live in unity: of one accord. God does not have separate plan for each family member – unity – as one. It is not of God for you to make separate plan apart from the family – to go your separate way or make your own plan. No, you are one. UNITY OF PURPOSE.
You are to have the same desires, careers, etc. and not have separate desires or careers. It’s time we had some mothers and wives who made a career in their homes.
And, “wherefore one?” God’s purpose in marriage is that He seeks a godly seed. God’s desire in your marriage is that He wants to have godly children. Because they are an “heritage of the Lord.”
God’s interest is in every family having a “godly seed,” for His glory.
This will not happen by accident, but through dedication, by a determined desire and by total concern with a concerted effort. What greater goal than to have “godly” children in a godly family who desire the will of God, and want to live by The Word of God?
TO BE CONCLUDED TOMORROW!
