Daily Truth: Marriage, an Institution Created by God

Marriage was created in the beginning of time by the God of the Universe. It was set up to be a picture of the relationship between Christ and man. The scripture says that Christ is the bride groom and we are the bride of Christ. It is a beautiful picture of eternal love. But this is something that the world cannot quite understand. They want to understand more about love, but they look everywhere except for God‘s word.

A marriage that is based on the relationship between Christ and man will survive. When both husband and wife seek God together, the marriage will not only survive, but it will thrive. We were not made to do anything on our own. We need the love of God in our hearts pouring out of us so we know how to love each other. Yes, marriage is still difficult. There are still broken relationships. And there are marriages that begin again after a divorce. We live in a broken world so there are broken relationships. But that is not God‘s will for marriage. His will is that we would seek him together, unified, and build our relationship upon him. That is the ideal marriage.

So you must decide whether or not you are going to allow God to be the foundation for the marriage you are building. The beautiful thing about living in a broken world, is that it is always in need of restoration, and we serve a God who restores and mends what has been broken if we allowed him to. It is never too late to begin anew.
