The Secret of Honour in Marriage! (4)

Dear Reader,

You are welcome to this week’s edition. Last week, I continued in my discussion on the secret of honour in marriage, on the part of married couples.

This week, we shall be examining another dimension of adultery often overlooked by people, but brings about dishonour in marriage.

For instance, picture a scene where a beautiful woman is walking by and a married man looks at her from the crown of her head to the sole of her feet and admires her but her figure remains heavily imprinted upon the man’s mind. That is nothing but lust of the flesh.

That’s why God’s Word says; even looking lustfully at a woman is the same as committing adultery with her, as seen in Matthew 5:28. When lust conceives, it brings forth sin and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death (James 1:15).

It’s interesting to know that the first place David committed adultery with Bathsheba was in his heart. Don’t let vain imaginations destroy you; cast them down (2 Corinthians 10:5). Bring every thought to the obedience of the Word.

Hence, as married people, there are certain stimuli we can do without. For instance, the world relies on pornography to stimulate their sexual appetite but we don’t need to do this, because the impressions they leave on the mind has devastating consequences.

Whether you are single or married, each time you come across someone of the opposite sex and you cannot control yourself anymore; you don’t need anyone to tell you that something is wrong somewhere.

The earlier you deal with it, by pleading the Blood of Jesus, casting out wrong thoughts and looking away, the better! You can deal with that temptation; it’s not above you, especially in anticipation of the enjoyment of honour in your marriage.

Until you are born again, you cannot enjoy honour in your marriage, because you will find yourself defiling the marriage bed, whether as a single or married individual. To get born again, say this prayer of faith: “Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood.Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”

If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, congratulations, you are born again! You are now a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).

With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace in Jesus’ Name! Call or write to share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org, 07026385437 OR 08141320204.
