What God has joined together #681

The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?” 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 19:3–6, NKJV)

The word of God is clear and unambiguous as it defines marriage. Marriage has been arranged and defined by God, not man. Therefore, all people are to honor marriage as He gave it, not as they wish to define it (Heb. 13:4). God ordained marriage to be between one man and one woman for life (Gen. 2:24). Marriage is permanent (for life) and is not subject to the whims of men and women. Jesus says we sin when we separate what God joins together. Respect marriage and God who gave it as a blessing. Recommit yourself today to honoring marriage by being the kinds of husband or wife who brings honor to God in your marriage.
