"The Christian married couple can be a powerful
weapon in the hand of Jesus." - John Benton
Concerning marriage, Martin Luther, the Great Reformist, once said -
"There is no estate to which Satan is more opposed as to marriage."
We would all have to agree that never before, in
the history of mankind, has the institution of marriage been under
such severe attack from the enemy of righteousness.
"The man and wife are partners, like two oars in a boat."
- Henry Smith
"A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers."
- Robert Quillen
"Marriage is not a concession to our sinfulness; marriage is a provision for our holiness."
- J.A. Motyer
"In no relation is so much earthly happiness to be found, if it be entered upon discreetly, advisedly and in the fear of God. In none is so much misery seen to follow, if it be taken in hand unadvisedly, lightly, wantonly and without thought."
"The marriage relation lies at the very root of the social system of nations."
"The nearer a nation's laws about marriage approach to the law of Christ, the higher has the moral tone of that nation always proved to be."
- All 3 above quotes from J.C. Ryle
With the mad rush for the "sodomite marriages" to become an acceptable institution, we can grievously see how our nation has veered so far from "the law of Christ" and how its "moral tone" has fallen so low.
What can we do as Christians?
We can determine like never before to yield our marriages to
Jesus so that we, as couples, will become those
"powerful weapons" in His hands.
Take away the "fear of God" -
the awful sense of accountability before a Holy God for one's thoughts, words,
and actions -
and the marriage relationship will never last!
Oh! That the Holy Spirit would use
our marriages as "powerful weapons in the hands of Jesus"
