Love is a life time affair in a marital relationship. Little wonder in the marriage vow, the agreement ends with “till death do us apart”
God expects sweetness in marriage and the fire of love to continually burn.
Verse 8 of 1St Cor. 13 said: “Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away” (NIV).
This means, the first love, affection, attraction, commitment to each other must be consistent. That conviction and romance that was brought into this Holy matrimony must not end/fail, it should not dry, it should not go sour, or cease.
Where love is failing, something is absolutely wrong because love ought not to fail.
All other things would pass away, even your children will come of age, get married and leave to start their own families, but you and your spouse must ensure that your love remain.
The world always recounts the failure; look at the fall of Adam and Eve for example, the duo are such magnificent lovers. They were the first institution of love (marriage) established, and they shared unwavering passion for each other.
They fulfilled the fundamentals of God for marriage; “Love and Honor”.
At the very first sight of Eve, Adam was trembled by love and Eve was humbled by love. God expects us to live in love as couples.
The emphases regarding Gods expectation are:
Be an imitator of Christ even in your marriage.
“Therefore be imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]” Eph. 5:1 (AMP)
The best way that leads to joy and fulfillment in marriage is to desire God first and follow Him.
Walk in love.
“And walk in love, [esteeming and delighting in one another] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a slain offering and sacrifice to God [for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance” Eph. 5:2 (AMP)
Adam and Eve, even in their disobedience, their love for each other didn’t fail. Their bond was unbroken and they never allowed their predicament to get the best of them.
In fact, in Gen 4:1, after God banished them from the Garden, their first move was to have jeru trip (oh glory).
Challenges are no excuse for marital love to fail. In fact, failure is not an excuse why couples should not get along. Adam and Eve failed but they did not allow their failure to Rob their love life (incredible)!
Stop focusing on the shortcomings of your spouse, take advantage of each other’s strength. You are as imperfect as your spouse, you must live in Love. You must build your marriage together in love.
Adam and Eve forgave each other and moved on even though Adam had blamed Eve for making him eat the forbidden fruit and she had blamed the devil for derailing her. They both moved on (reconciliation)
We must learn how to forgive each other in marriage so that the enemy (devil) will not have a foothold.
Challenges/conflicts in marriage is no excuse for separation either physically, sexually, or psychologically. You need to get involved with your partner irrespective.
God expect love from you sir and respect from you ma, God has a demand on your marriage. Failure to comply leads to failure in marriage.
