The Secret of Honour in Marriage! (5)

Dear Reader,

Truly, it has been a wonderful time with the Holy Spirit, since we started this teaching series on the secret of honour in marriage. In the past weeks, we’ve been exploring what it is that actually makes for honour in marriage, which is keeping the marriage bed undefiled.

This week, as we round off this teaching, I’ll like to quickly unlock a particular key that makes for an honourable marriage.

Though keeping the marriage bed undefiled is the secret to honour in marriage, yet some homes, even after doing that still experience dishonour in marriage. So, in this edition, to enjoy all-round honourable marriage, husband and wife must always be in agreement, as it is the key that unlocks the door to an honourable marriage.

Disagreement between husband and wife shuts the door to honour in marriage. That’s why God’s Word says: Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven (Matthew 18:19).

Today, the struggles and ultimate failure experienced in many marriages are traceable to lack of agreement in the home. The devil takes special delight in bringing rancor and disagreement in the home, because he knows that once disagreement creeps in between a couple, the marriage is heading for a collapse.

Personally, my husband and I are always in agreement, so there is no way the devil can come between us or into our home. Since we are in agreement, we enjoy an honourable marriage. I remember my husband showing me what the Bible says in Genesis 2:18: And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. I am, in essence, a help meet for him. I agree with him in everything because I know he can’t make a wrong choice and we have not had our first argument till date!

Until husband and wife are in agreement, honour in marriage will be impossible. Working in agreement with your spouse is triggered by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour. This is what new birth is all about. If you are ready to do that, 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.
