Repent: To change one’s mind & purpose; regret. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, REPENT: for the kingdom of heaven
Now that we have taken a look at those things that have stunt our individual growth in our marriages, those things that are stagnant, and clogging our life processes, we look above at the definition of repentance. Today, this moment, now the true work can begin…Many of our marriages are growing cold, selfish, stagnant, because we have failed to put forth efforts that were extraordinarily designed uniquely for Husbands & Wives. We read in Matthew 19:4-6, (Matthew 19:4-6
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ ? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.“), that TOGETHER we are one. We must work together as a unit, if there are things that you are doing or participating in where your spouse is NOT involved or does not know about, you MUST seek repentance, and ask God to forgive you and then go find your spouse and tell the truth. In order for TRUE worship and Love & Warmth to return to our Marriages we must be held accountable for all of our actions. Especially those shared between husband & wife. It is not okay for any conversation to be participated in where your Husband or Wife if present, would feel uncomfortable. Some would even agree that financial responsibilities and any dealings with money are opportunities for Husbands and Wives to gain insight and have healthy conversations. Are you sharing? Are you embarrassed?? Are you telling the WHOLE truth?? Our covenant vows require US as husband and wife to be OPEN, to be HONEST, to tell the TRUTH, no matter the cost.
Today, meditate on Matthew 19:4-6 if there are areas in your life where there are secrets, areas where you have disrespected your spouse by participating in conversations unbecoming of a married Husband or Wife….Repent…ask God to reveal them to you and turn from your ways……. The marriage movement needs your obedience to gain momentum in God’s kingdom. We need what your married love together represents. Your children need your obedience and your truth. This married love we’re praying for, will change minds, save the lost, and shift atmospheres…….Take a stand, Today!
REPEAT after US: Thank you God, for the Love that WE share as husband & Wife. Today, teach us how WE can learn more from you on how our LOVE & OBEDIENCE is not only beneficial to our children but benefiting your kingdom. Move in our Marriage this day….In Jesus Name, Amen!
