United Life Married Ministry
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)
This passage is used often to describe marriage having reward, strength and necessity God being ˜braided' into the marriage. We would like to encourage everyone today to pray God into your marriage. He is the creator of everything including marriage. When we allow Him to be braided into the marriage his influence is woven throughout from beginning to end. How wonderful it is to have the influence of Jesus Christ in a marriage. We see today other alternate influencers in marriages and the tearing down of the home instead of the building up. Marriage is a difficult and very complex task and requires strict adherence to the blueprint if it will have all the structural integrity necessary to build a home that withstands the storms of life.
