The message from my wife and I is very clear and very simple. For those who have eyes and ears they can see and hear. Marriages and Families are under attack!. Look around your circle, how many couples are divorced or separated or on their way to that outcome, how many families are broken with children suffering the bruises of the battle.
God has chosen the framework of the family to help us understand authority and His plan in our life. The structure of the family is vital to so many other laws, principles and teachings in the Bible. If it is so important, it is also important to understand what God’s plan for the family is so that we can understand the rest of His Word as it applies to us today. If we let the courts of the world rule on our marriages Primarily, without doing the work according to Gods plans, roles and responsibilities for the marriage and family then we have failed to fulfill our respective roles within the marriage and the family.
When we get a grasp of the family structure God has established, we can get a better understanding of how God wants us to interact with one another and with His authority.
The family unit points us to another establishment God has ordained—the church. Jesus Christ is the head of the church. He is the authority. The church as a whole is His bride. We as individuals in the church are His children and siblings one with another.
If you have a proper family unit, then your children will have a better understanding of God, His church and His authority. If your children never learn to respect their parents, whom they live with and interact with, then how are they going to learn to respect God whom they cannot see? What happens when these children dont even see their parents because of divorce or separation. When parents teach their children that there is authority, responsibility and consequences for wrong actions, the children will much more quickly understand who God is and the authority He has in our lives.
Lets fight genuinely and whole heartedly for our marriages and families. Its the only way to win this attack against marriages and families #TalkingMarriageToday
