Romans 11:26” For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” God Almighty who every family bears his name and all humanity has been borne from him. God is a loving Father who started a family because he wanted to fellowship with his family on earth. The heart of God has been for healthy family units to rule the earth. He blessed the family in Genesis 9:7”As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” He commanded the first man and woman to multiply and start a family that would increase and populate the earth.
The church needs to stop copying the world with a high divorce rate and reduce it to zero percent. When the love of the father is allowed to flow through a husband and wife this will bring healing to any martial difficulty that the enemy tries to introduce to break up this sacred relationship. Ephesians 5:25” Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” Paul exhorts Christian men today to love their wives as Christ loves the church. The core problem which results in many marriage breakups today is that we men do not take this command to heart and love our wives as Christ loves the church. How could a marriage where the man is willing to lay down his life for his wife and children not succeed?
What woman or child would not be drawn to a living, loving reflection of Jesus Christ; who would love and cherish them putting them ahead of himself like Jesus put mankind ahead of himself when he died for us? Let God heal our marriages and make the broken Christian families Christ centered again.
