Before you consider marriage, the person you are dating should already be on fire for the Lord, firm and committed in their relationship with Lord. What you don’t want to do is marry someone who has no interest or desire for God. Your marriage is set up for disaster from the onset. Now please hear my heart. I deeply understand that we serve a God who can do the impossible, who is well able to do anything but fail. But we do have control over who we let in and out of our life. Do you agree?
The Bible says, “Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? 2 Corinthians 6:14-15
What blessings do we forfeit when we marry an unbeliever? We miss out on having a prayer partner in the home; praying for us and with us. We miss out on having someone speak the Word of God over us in different times. When we marry someone who doesn’t fully understand their role as husband and/or wife according to the Word of God, this creates chaos in the marriage. Why? The Word of God is our light. If they don’t have the Word in them and don’t understand who they are, how can they properly lead their family in the ways of the Lord? We forfeit the blessing of worshipping and serving the Lord together, as a family. Often times during your marriage, you will find yourself forcing or trying to drag your spouse to church. But they will only resent you for this. We want to draw others to Christ, not run them away.
For those who are not married yet, there is still hope. Please consider what you have just read and take it serious. Once you marry, you made a promised to God and you are committed to your spouse ‘til death.
God loves you!!! Kamila
