And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:4-6
Hi my married friends. I have a question for you: How are you doing in “becoming one flesh?” So many couples today find it hard to become unified because they both pursue their own individual goals and visions. That was never God’s intent. The purpose of marriage is to unify two different individuals- with all their hopes, dreams, desires – with the vision of reaching greater spiritual and physical purposes than they can alone. The couple who is willing to yield their own desires to accomplish the greater goal finds their hopes and dreams fulfilled. God’s desire is for marriage to be a taste of heaven. That’s a goal! That’s a vision! That’s wisdom!
