SUCCESSFUL CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE REQUIRES BIBLICAL ORIENTATION AND COMMITMENT:
Christian Marriage is marriage between one Christian man and one Christian woman, which is based on DIVINE DESIGN (instituted for duty, service and love OFFERED TO the other), rather than based on HUMAN DESIRE (innovated for demand, satisfaction and comfort EXERTED FROM the other).
“Marriage of demand will surely suffer the economics laws of scarcity.”
God was the sole “manufacturer” of the Marriage Institution in the beginning; therefore only God’s manual in the Scriptures offers the surest guide to successfully “operate” Marriage WITH LIFELONG WARRANTEE. Both ancient and modern cultural marriages are risky attempts that use human manoeuvres to mimic and mismanage marriage instead of following divine measures and guidelines revealed in God’s “operational manual” (The Scripture) for His Marriage Institution.
There are no demands in Christian Marriage ceremony; there is only the vow/pledge/troth. May God help you as a Christian spouse to understand and be determined to fulfil your marriage vows by offering:
- LIFELONG GUARANTEED help for companionship and comfort to your spouse;
- EXCLUSIVE CONJUGAL intimacy to satisfy your spouse against fornication;
- SHARED LABOUR/RESOURCES for the care of your spouse and upbringing of godly offspring.
“Seek not your satisfaction in marriage as the pagan Gentiles of old and today do; but rather seek you first to fulfil your avowed marriage responsibility to your spouse as God pleases, and all other satisfaction shall be added unto you.”
