He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:4-6

Marriage is Important

The benefits of marriage, as established by many social researchers through to the present time, are widely and regularly published. We present some of these in “Some Benefits of Marriage” but here we look at the Importance of Marriage primarily from the perspective of Scripture.

God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)
Right from the start God made men and women equal, in “the image of God” but with complimentary differences as men and women.

On the creation of man God placed him in the garden and gave him His vision for life in the world that He, God had created. God then saw that something was incomplete and said “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him” (Genesis 2:18). God saw that it was not good for the first man, and for most of us, to be left by himself. God then created/crafted woman out of the rib of that first man ( Genesis 2:21-22). God presented and entrusted this remarkable gift to the man. God had instituted what we know as marriage. A man and a woman becoming one new entity……..

Prayer for marriage ~ September

The charity and not for profit sector has its own unique issues. These include raising funds, which in turn affects the ability to hire/retain/train staff and deliver services; the employment of volunteer staff and the need to employ suitably qualified staff, yet not always being in a position to offer salary packages equivalent to those on offer in the corporate field. The challenge of working with volunteers. The challenge of communicating in a foreign language, personal safety, dealing with different cultural norms and hygiene issues if working in some countries overseas. These issues and many others have the capacity to impact marriages and family. At this time there is also the very great challenges that have occurred as a result of the virus – some towns and states in lockdown, overseas travel prevented, income streams affected if supporters become unemployed or businesses close. Increased needs in the community, the need to comply with government regulations to help stop the spread of the virus, strain on relationships – including family. All cause for urgent and on-going prayer. Please pray. Thank God that He is in control, knows all things and please pray that good will come out of this pandemic. Please pray that churches work together in unity to ensure that they supply effective community and family connecting centres open to all in need.

  • Thank God for those who willingly volunteer in this sector. Pray that God would strengthen them as they serve with patience, mercy and grace. Pray that such […] Read More

“God is guiding your marriage. Marriage is more than your love for each other. It has a higher dignity and power, for it is God’s holy ordinance, through which He wills to perpetuate the human race till the end of time.
In your love you see only your two selves in the world, but in marriage you are a link in the chain of the generations, which God causes to come and to pass away to His glory, and calls into His kingdom. In your love you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed at a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind. Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal—it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, and not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins you together in the sight of God and man.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
