“It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
-Genesis 2:18 NIV
God had a plan when He created Adam and Eve. He intended that husband and wife work together. Let’s call them “teammates”. The plan is still in place today. Way back in Genesis 2, God said, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife”. God still intends that a man and a woman live together in marriage with the purpose of working together, serving and loving each other so that the lives of each are enriched and more fulfilling. It’s not easy. There are people and things in this world that love to destroy marriages. Pride, porn, conflicts, careers. The marriage relationship is so unique that Jesus uses it to illustrate His relationship with the church. “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” -Ephesians 5:25 NIV Jesus gave His life to save His bride, the Church, and now we look forward to the marriage feast in heaven. If you’re married, make your marriage a priority. If you’re not married, please pray for those who are, and know that those who are, are praying for you.
