Why is Love and Marriage a Beautiful Thing?
Genesis 2:23-24, "The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." NIV
Mark 10:5-9, "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law, "Jesus replied. "But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." NIV
Ephesians 5:31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." NIV
Let's pray: Dear Lord Jesus, I lift up everyone who is reading this around the world, for there are many of you. I pray for their marriages that You, Jesus would be invited to come and be in the center of those marriages. Please protect marriage and protect Your people. Please bless Your people and keep us safe and healthy. I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.
