Marriages That Last

Honoring the Covenant of Marriage:

God’s View on Our Vows/Covenants – Genesis 2:18-25; Matthew 19:4-6 – God is serious about covenants!

Ecclesiastes 5:2, 4-6: “Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.”

“When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?”

God’s Design for Marriage – Genesis 2:18-25 and Matthew 19:4-6:

Marriage by definition is:
1. A holy covenant
2. Initiated by God
3. Conditioned on an irrevocable promise
4. Oneness with an imperfect person of the opposite sex
5. For a lifetime
6. To glorify God
