Total Commitment

1 Cor. 7:10-16

A man and a woman should go into marriage knowing very well that God wants the marriage to last for life. If the marriage is to last that long, then the couple ab initio (from the beginning) needs to have firm commitment and have the determination to make the marriage work. Total commitment implies that each party will do everything in his or her power to ensure that the marriage does not fail. Marriages fail because the relationship is taken for granted, each party expecting the other party to be committed without he or she playing his or her own role. If the husband is committed without first waiting for the wife, and same thing for wife, then there will be no need to ever think of divorce or separation. Commitment involves forsaking all for the sake of the family; seeking to understand and cherish the marriage partner; readiness to apologize when one offends; avoiding the thought that you made a mistake in marrying your partner; etc.

Point of Emphasis: Have the firm commitment that the boat of your marriage will not capsize.

Prayer Point: God, grand us the grace to nurture our marriage for life.
