THE JOURNEY OF MARRIAGE PART 2 – APOSTLE JOSHUA TALENA

TEXT: PROVERBS 18:22

INTRODUCTION

Marriage works when we work it with God’s wisdom.
The principle of God’s help is to make marriage easy. (Genesis 2:18

THERE ARE THINGS YOU MUST CONSIDER IN MARRIAGE.
1 COMMITMENT
2 SUBMISSION
3 CONTRIBUTION
4 LISTENING
5 HARVEST
Commitment is closing the door to other options about your marriage or relationship.
Never enter marriage with options.
Prioritize your marriage above every other pursuit.
Never go into anything you will never be committed to.
Commitment means settling your heart in marriage.( Genesis 2:21-25
WHAT DOES THE SCRIPTURE SAY ABOUT COMMITMENT?
Commitment is saying I have my short comings but I believe we are God’s will for each other.
Your marriage must be your first priority
The higher you place value on that marriage, the more you prioritise that marriage.(Psalm 127:1
Marriage demand total commitment.
2 SUBMISSION
Where there is division, progress is halted.
The cure for power tussle in marriage is submission.
Submission is allowing one to lead the way so that the both of you won’t block the way

WHAT TO NOTE ABOUT SUBMISSION
1 Always place value on your marriage more than your own opinion.
Submission is having a say but allowing the other person have the final say.
Submission goes with discussion.
Submission prospers where there is discussion.
Submission is not demanded but submission is deserved.
We don’t submit to our partners because they’re perfect but because of what the word of God says.
One of the ways of making your wife feel secured is by buying properties and writing her name on them.

3 CONTRIBUTION
This is the ability to ease the weight of the marriage.(Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Contribution must be from both sides.(Mark 10:7-9
It takes two productive partners to make one prosperous couple.
Contribution means you are willing to share your lives as equal partners.
Every contribution requires consultation.

4 LISTENING
Communication is the life wire of every marriage.
Communication is the sharing of information and feelings to keep the love and friendship of the marriage.
To be a good communicator, you must be a good listener.
Communication is seeking a common ground in every marital discussion (James 1:19)
Christianity makes u a good husband and a good wife.
Your marriage is a reflection of your Christianity.( Colossians 4:6
Marriage is two forgivers living together.(1 Corinthians 3:1

5 HARVEST
Marriage is the harvest of how you lived as a single.
Your single hood is a time where you build spirituality.
