Marriage Is Sacred--Let's Keep It That Way

By Apostle Cathryn Ndyabagye

Hebrews 13:4a Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things.

Nothing is more wonderful than seeing two happily married-- faithful spouses together. And to see them holding hands as an elderly couple, who is  still smiling, in love, and laughing after all those years together.

Yes, it would be nice to see more couples like this :)

When couples  live right before God, and  those who know how to serve each other as husband and wife, and for those who know how keep each other happy and to grow together. They grow and shine in the love that God gave for the both of them. They have sacred marriages.

Pastor Jerry and Helen Brooking, who pastor in Oregon, are a good example of being one of these couples.  Both are very positive and loving to each other. I have been in their home, and seen their love for one another, their loyalty, and Godliness. They are true through and through to each other and hold their marriage very sacred.

I was so touched by their 18 children that was on their wall. I knew it took a lot of work to raise that many children and they did a wonderful job.

No, they didn't have a perfect life throughout their years. I am sure they had their ups and downs. yet, their loyalty never died.

You always see them working together in their ministry. It's so awesome to see people in their 70s like this, and to be such bubbly couples. They even act younger than they are and they are still in love!  They are so close, that they shared it all together and made it ON TOP ALL THESE YEARS. You know why? They have a Sacred Marriage in God!

I know that marriage takes a lot of love, patience, giving, and support for one another with give and take. It takes both giving 100 percent to each other--and never stopping. It takes total devotion.

If both husband and wife have that, and never lose that drive to please each other, they too can have a successful and life-long love too. And when you are totally settled with a person you love, it's easier to stand together through it all.

When a couple marries each other, and make that oath to stay together in God--for the rest of their life. They are responsible for trying to work all situations out, if problems arise. God makes a way to work out any problem in marriages. Especially as Christians.

Unfortunately there are many marriages that do not make it, for some reason or another. Only God understands why. Who are we to judge anyone? God knows what people go through.

Maybe some of them rush or they don't grow together. Maybe infidelity or adultery. But sometimes this tears up the marriage and it ends.

What I want to see is people make it, and be happy together. That is what is so beautiful. The hope that you can have a good marriage and make it last a life-time. AMEN

I love these scriptures because it shows the UNION that God wants marriage to be.

I Corinthians 11:3, and 11-12
3But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.11Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.

Our families are sacred to God. And if they are important to Jesus, they should be important to the spouses too, and we should give our lives for our spouses!

We should do everything for them. We have an obligation to the families that God gives to us.Treat them with tender loving care. For our families deserve that!



Remember, when you leave your mother and father, you should be taking good care of your spouse that you married.

You are ONE so treat them well. They are part of you! Your parents don't run your life anymore. You have to live your life together and make the choices you choose with your spouse alone.

And when problems arise, solve it between you and your spouse, do not share your problems outside your house.

If you involve other people or your families in your problems in marriage, too many people get involved and interfere with the husband and wife and can hinder your relationship.

It's best to work out your own problems together and stay confident in that situation.

Keep it between the both of you. This way you can both have confidence in your marriage and each other and then you will not betray. AMEN

Only you both know each other the way you are, and when you can solve your own problems, this shows maturity in your marriage.

Too many run from house to house telling on their spouse, stirring up emotions in families and causes great grief. We don't have to do this to our marriages.

Marriages Is Sacred--Let's Keep It That Way!

Your marriage can have a positive atmosphere in your home. Count your blessings together.

Start showing your wife that you love her, hold her, spend more time with her, and the kids, get out and do things together.

Stop leaving her over and over again. You will lose your marriage that way. Don't exhaust your wife like that. And make sure you are not growing apart with too much time away from each other.

Women, make your husband the best meals, laugh with him, give him time to relax when he gets home, give him a back massage, make him a nice refreshment fruit drink.

Men, take the time to look stop and enjoy your wife, slow down and know she is there, talk to your family and enjoy your time with them.

Listen to what they have to say, and enjoy your kids, They have waited long time to see you. Your kids miss you so much! Your family loves you! Make your wife feel like your Queen.

Women, do all you can to stop complaining and nagging, feel free to sit down and discuss things with your husband in a mature manner, and and be a blessing to your husband.

Believe in him, honor him, and build him up and make him feel special--the king of your marriage. Pray for one another always!

You should always protect your marriage by your love, stand true to one another, never allowing yourselves to fall out of love, but rather--grow more and more in your love!

Physical attraction is not the only thing you enjoy in your marriage though it's important too.

We want maturity to balance our love all the way around. Having all the respect and elements God wants us to have in our marriage.

To be fulfilled in it. Knowing and leaning on God always and he will strengthen your marriage and help you grow together like you never dreamed of.

If you do not put fuel in a car, the car will not run. If you do not keep oil, the car lubed,and keep the maintenance right, the car will fall apart. Just like a marriage.

If you allow God to help you and stay close to Him, and your family and walk right before God, you can have a wonderful blessed close sacred marriage.

Know the needs of your marriage and keep them up and don't get lazy on your relationship!
