It Takes Three In A Marriage

It takes three to have a good marriage and to have children raised up correctly. Marriages crumble and fall because the key person, being God, is missing with both, or one of the spouses. Paul taught, “wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.” (Colossians 3:18,19) A divided household, when it comes to a person’s disbelief, causes many unnecessary arguments and contention. Even kids are affected in a very bad way. In this situation, children are not raised in the Lord most times. Children have to make a choice in what to believe in and how to live their lives, since their parents were not inline in how they were raised. So if their mother hardly ever prays or reads the Bible, their children most likely won’t also. If she listens to or watches worldly things, her children will most likely do the same. Even if the dad prays often, reads the Bible daily, and watches and listens to faith-inspired content and music, the same kids may begin to dislike or hate the same things. The result is them telling their father to be quiet and use his headphones.

Paul taught, “be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14) So what happens to children that are part of a divided family? As they move out of the house, going to church will not be a priority. What they watch and listen to will be worldly. So can marriages last like this? Unfortunately, most of them don’t. They can continue for a very long time, but without God guiding them both the constant arguing will most likely cause the marriage to end in a divorce. So the cure for any marriage is for the couple to come in unison with God. To teach things that come from the Lord. To listen to and watch things of God on a constant basis. To go to church each week together as a family. Then, the same children will choose to also raise their children in the same way. All children may not turn out this way but if the majority does, then praise God. Therefore, only with God leading the marriage is the way to have a healthy marriage, and have children raised up in the Lord also. Amen.

The Ten Commandments: #5

God spoke and we should listen up. Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land.

An Untamed Tongue

Our tongue can get us in a lot of trouble. Only God can help tame it, that we may speak kind words and not curse words.

Colossians 3:1-4

Colossians 3:1-4 (KJV)
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Colossians 3:23,24

Stop Using Profanity For God’s Sake

Paul is a great teacher in the Bible and not only taught the people in Ephesus about repenting of our evil speaking, but also when he wrote a letter to the Colossians.

No More Cussing or Filthy Language

One thing that was spoken by Paul to the Colossians above is “filthy communication out of your mouth”. Of which also James taught.

Colossians 3:12,13

Colossians 3:12,13 (KJV)
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

Colossians 3:1-3

Rise With Christ And Put Off The Old Man

If there is one person that can help us live any differently, while being in this wicked world, it is the Lord God. Our willingness to serve Him, also brings in the Holy Spirit to guide us.

Colossians 3:16-17

Colossians 3:16-17 (KJV)

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Let The Love Of God Lead Us

As Chris and I decided to go out in faith and share the love of Jesus, doors opened up to us very quickly. Each person we asked to pray over, accepted prayer.

Give Heed to God’s Messenger

God’s message of hope is for all mankind. It is being proclaimed to all the world, by people like you and me, if they might have ears to hear.

The Qualities Of The Elect

It is amazing to think of the life I once knew compared to what I have now. The Lord has truly turned my life around.

Set Your Mind On The Lord

Let the Lord guide your thoughts. Come to Him and your mind will be renewed. Our thoughts will be made clean. Our hearts will be made pure.

When Marriage Is Hard Seek The Lord

Even when times are hard stick by your spouse. Tell them that you love them. Seek the Lord’s love so that you may love your spouse with an even greater love.
