But from the beginning of creation, 'God made them male and female.' 'Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate."
Mark 10:6-9 ESV
Good Morning Men of God,
Protecting our wives goes beyond physically preventing harm or danger. There are many attacks on the Godly marriage that are intangible. We are called to protect our wives and marriage regardless of the adversary. Our text today shows us clearly that no man is to separate what God has United. We must be vigilant as Godly guardians over our most precious partners. That means anything that we do, watch, or say that can be a foothold of satan to damage our union needs to be removed. The rated "R" movie that you like, cut it out. The images promote sexual promiscuity and violence. The time you spend with the fellas, monitor it. We need guy time, but intimate time with your better half is crucial to spiritual growth and marital confidence. When was the last time you used your words to admonish, encourage, and compliment your wife? If the answer is not "just yesterday", then it had been too long. Godly marriage is hard. Over 50% of Christian marriages are ending in divorce. Satan is working hard. I need us to work harder. Desire your union today with your spouse, more than satan wants your seperation. Make the sacrifice. Put the work in. Let nothing tear you apart.
Love you Guys,
