The University Of Marriage. VIII.
“Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?”
This is the thing which the LORD doth command concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom they think best; only to the family of the tribe of their father shall they marry.
In the last part of this series, we discovered that husband and wife are not the owners of their children, that they are simply custodians, children are God’s heritage and they belong to God. Children are given to the couples for proper guidance, care and support in life.
However, today we will discuss one of the criteria necessary for proper guidance of our wards. This is caption as, *”One Lord, one faith, one baptism.”* (Ephesians 4:5) Although our main text advises marrying someone best for you but must be of your family in faith. While our memory verse kicked against marrying a strange spouse, for it is a sin against God.
More so, the scriptures say, *”Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”* (2 Corinthians 6:14) This implies that, marrying a man or woman outside your faith, will drag you backwards, break down your communication and fellowship with God.
In summary, *”Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”* (Proverbs 22:6) Beloved, with what faith are teaching your children? Balanced or in balance faith? Are you rooted and rooting your wards in the teaching and knowledge of God? Hear this, husband and wife must be of one faith. Failure to do this will be very unfortunate and disastrous for the children. May you not fail in teaching your children, the way of the Lord. Amen. Shalom!
God bless you.
Till He returns or calls you home, do remain in the power of Jesus love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
My household will serve One Lord, have one faith and one baptism in Christ Jesus.
Father Lord, help my household to remain one in faith and service to You. And give me the grace to train my children with a genuine knowledge of God, that my family may abide in the truth of the gospel always in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
