Title - Marriage Series part 2

Teacher:- Pastor Stella

Main Text:- Romans 1: 24 - 31

Bible Passages:- Romans 1: 24 - 31, Genesis 6:2, Genesis 2:18, Genesis 3:1, Psalm 107:2, Genesis 6:1-2.

Today, we observe different types of marriages in the world.
For instance, we can see marriage between a man and a man, woman and woman and in some cases between humans and animals.

This is not the original plan from God.
He invented marriage between a man and a woman.
Anyone who does otherwise will face the wrath of God.

It is important that your marriage be ordained by God because marriage can make you or mar you 

Why some people rush into marriage

1. Appearance:

If you marry a man/woman for their looks or beauty, remember that beauty is like a flower.
It may be beautiful in the morning, however as the evening approaches, it fades.

2. Escape Family Pressure:

Some individuals choose to rush into marriage due to family pressures. 
For example, as women age, they believe their time is ticking and have to rush into marriage.
You may end up with a monster and regret it all the days of your life.

3. Sexual desires

To fulfill lustful desires, a lot of people rush into marriage.
Reflect to the moment you started learning how to drive.
You wanted to drive so badly. Now that you are a an expert driver, you really don't feel like driving all the time.
It is worth waiting till God's time rather than rushing

4. Love for children

God promised Abraham a son at his old age. Due to lack of patience, Abraham slept with his wife's maid.
Now all Christians are facing the consequence of Abraham's mistake.
There is a constant disagreement between Muslims and Christians.

In Summary:

Marriage should not be taken lightly as it is a covenant.
It is a marathon not a sprint
You need patience and long suffering to make the marriage work
Pray without ceasing for your marriage
