Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder – Matthew 19:6
The Pharisees try to tempt Jesus with a difficult question. They wanted to test His wisdom with one of the most controversial questions of their day regarding divorce according to the Mosaic Law but Jesus refers them to God’s original purpose in creation, that they should be “one flesh” indicates that being one flesh is one new entity, and is not limited to sexual union. The Bible clearly indicates that sexual union does not itself constitute marriage, which is fundamentally a covenantal agreement between two partners for life. (more…)
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose – Romans 8:28
Have you ever wondered why you were born? As we get older and sometimes in our younger years, we begin to examine our goals to see have we met them or at least some of them.

God established the home even before the church. God intended the home to be heaven on earth. It is an example of the relationship He desires for His church. A home can’t be in unity when division, controlling and domineering has crept in. God doesn’t want either spouse to be controlled by the other. When we come against each other, we really are coming against ourselves because according to the Bible, when married, we’re no longer two but one flesh. (more…)
