Marriage is a good thing.

Marriage is a legal relationship between a husband and a wife that last for a life time.
Note: it is not an experiment.  Remember even if it does not work out, you still have to stay in the relationship as God hates divorce.

Outlines Discussed.

Outline 1

The relationship with God (Gen 2.18)

Marriage was originally intended by God.
God believes a man should not be alone.
Which is why in Gen 2, he formed woman out of Man to be his helper.

Before seeking marriage advice from God, you must have a relationship with God first.
As you need him to guide him with your decisions.
Don't be afraid to pour out your heart to him
2Tim 1.7

If you don't have a relationship with God, you will find it hard to hear from Him.

Outline 2

Why should we Marry

1.To obey God's command Gen 1.28 
2. For fellowship Gen 2.18
3. For partnership Ecc 4.9-11
4. To satisfy the desire for procreation

Godly counself for Marriage

God does not want us joined with unbelievers.
There is no fellowship with an unbeliever (darkness and light cannot dwell together)

Outline 4.

What makes a happy home ?

i)A successful marriage is based on genuine heart agreement
When a husband and wife agree, the children are more likely to grow in the way of God
Prov 22.6

ii)Remember God is important in our lives hence be willing to establish a christian home and have the husband as the head (authority).
Husbands also, love your wife as Christ loved the church (he was willing to die for the church)

iii)It is necessary to allow the word of God to dwell in you.
Parents, if you do not have the word of God in you, it cannot dwell in your children.

Outline 5

How do we recognize his will in marriage Prov 3.5

i)The word of God is the means by which we can recognise his will in marriage

If you have a particular person in your mind, you will tend to dream about it.
Hence base your decisions on the word of God.

ii)Through the counsel of the spiritual leaders/elders in church
Do not despise godly counsel from spiritual head.
Take Samson as an example. a true child of God. Even before he was born, God already dedicated him for his work.
