5 Essential ingredients for a Godly marriage:
4. Abide in future not appearance
5. There must be God in the relationship.
1.Honesty: Any marital relationship that isn’t based on honestly and trust can’t go far, build a
relationship on trust because it will make the marriage last long, for example: you will see 30
anniversary, 40 years anniversary, 50 anniversary of marriage and they are still together, the
foundation of this kind of marriage is built with trust. The bible says in Colossians 3:9: Lie not
one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds (KJV).
The Bible also says in Hebrews 13:4:Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but
whoremongers and adulterers God will judge (KJV).
2. Sharing: When I say sharing, when a man and woman join together in a matrimonial home
basically they’ve become one, mathematically one plus one is two but maritally one plus one is
one, all that the husband have belongs to the wife and all that the wife has belongs to the
husband, they are met to share among each other, some believe that what they have doesn’t
belongs to their husband/wife, that kind of thing depreciate marriage and it can disfigures a
marriage. The bible says in Hebrews 13:16:But to do good and to communicate forget not: for
with such sacrifices God is well pleased (KJV). The bible also says in Acts 4:32: And the
multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them
that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common (KJV).
3. Assistance: Assistance must be in marriage because it holds marriages, it very important for
husband and wife to work, truly all the responsibility goes to the husband as the head of the
family but that doesn’t mean that the wife shouldn’t do anything to support the family, it may not
be a big support, this kind of support makes the pillar of marriage stronger. The bible says in
Proverbs 12:4:A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is
as rottenness in his bones (KJV). The bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12: Two are better than
one; because they have a good reward for their labour.For if they fall, the one will lift up his
fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him
up.Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one
prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken (KJV).
4. Abide in the future not appearance: Many people make mistakes of their spouse/ suitors just
because of their present appearance, for example: you that married a woman just for her
appearance, just because she has flashy appearance, if that marriage continues though she
may have a flashy appearance but what if she doesn’t have the qualities of a wife. If a
woman married a man just for the appearance or his wealth, if the reason she married him isn’t
there any more, what will be the future of the marriage. That’s why I said you should abide in the
future and not in the appearance. The Bible says in 1 Peter 4:8:And above all things have
fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins (KJV).
5. There must be God in the relationship: relationship without God is like a person that build
house without a good foundation because God is the foundation of all, God has to be the
builder of any successful marital relationship. For two people that came from different backgrounds,
God needs to abide in, to make that kind of relationship work. The relationship of now only few
last long, the rate of divorce is getting high, that’s why a marital relationship has to abide in
God. Jesus says in Matthew 19:6:Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What
therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (KJV).
The bible says in Malachi 2:16: For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting
away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of hosts:
therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously (KJV).
That’s why you need to build your marital relationship in the way of the Lord, genuine love from
God never end. The bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8:Charity suffereth long, and is kind;
charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself
unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in
iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things,
endureth all things.Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away
(KJV). That’s why every marital relationship must have the 5 essential ingredients for a Godly
marriage that I mentioned above because when you abide In this, the foundation of the marital
relationship will be solid. Jesus said in Mark 10:9-12:What therefore God hath joined together,
let not man put asunder. And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same
matter.And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another,
committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married
to another, she committeth adultery (KJV). Jesus also says in Matthew 19:4-6: And he
answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning
made them male and female And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and
shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain,
but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (KJV).
