Do you BRIDE take this man to be your husband, to live together in the covenant of marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to him as long as you both shall live?
Do you, GROOM, take this woman to be your wife, to live together in the covenant of marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?
Did you catch that??? We didn’t either! Where in the world did “OBEY”
disappear to in Traditional vows?? Right! Welcome to iCleave Ministries & Genesis 2:24
Obedience is defined as a synonym as “submission” Surprised????……..Well ç settle down….we didn’t lose our minds J … Wait, “iCleave, are you saying that we are charged to submit to one another??” “Submission is just for the woman right?? Understand that everyone at any given point in their lives have to submit to something. A special intimate moment in submission especially in your Faith requires us to surrender our “stinking thinking” and submit to the Most High! What we know for sure is that whether you delete it out of your vows, replace it with Honor, God still and always will make us Honor obedience. We have to remember that the obedience we have for our Faith is the same obedience that we MUST possess in our Marriages. We support and adore all things Godly Marriage and hope that although you may not have said it in your vows that you know without a shadow of a doubt Obedience is a gift from God and in obedience all of your marriage miracles and blessings reside. Stay the course! Marriage Works
Father we thank you for forgiving us if we have operated in disobedience towards or with our spouse. Marriage in your eyes is a Holy covenant between Man & Women. The faith that we show for you, we ask that the same obedience be transformed in our marriages daily. Where selfishness has taken shape we ask that you move us both towards a total surrender to your will. We thank you for obedience, for honor, for marriage vows and for the strength to live each day trusting your will for our Love, our life and our peace. In Jesus Name, Amen
