TEXT: PSALM 119: 1-6
Key verse: 1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
God wants to get people into Heaven. He wants to cause those who are married to
make it to Heaven. If the husband is not ready for Heaven, the wife should be ready
to make it to Heaven. If on the other hand the wife is not ready for Heaven, the
husband should strive to make it to Heaven. To achieve this, God demands
obedience to His word in marriage relationship. When you are married to a wife or
a husband, God demands obedience to His word. Perfect obedience! The scriptures
tell us that God expects perfection in the lives of His children. Do all things well, do
not allow defilement into your life or in your walk with God. Do not allow lies in
your speech or allow abusive and corrupt words to come out of your mouth. Walk
in the way of God, walk in the word of God. You will be blessed when you keep the
testimonies of the Lord; when you keep the commandments of God and when you
become a testimony to others to promote the name of the Lord.
The reading text today tells us that God wants you to seek Him with your whole
heart. Do not give in to temptation in your marriage to go the ungodly way. Be
perfect in your marital relationship even if you are married to an unbeliever. Be
perfect! Jesus walked in this world among unbelievers and He asked them, “Which
of you convinceth Me of sin?” Which of you will convince Me that I sinned?” Yes,
you are married to a carnal Christian, be perfect so that there may be no fault in you.
Put iniquity far away from you, do not tell lies and do not be abusive in your
language. Let your words be righteous and walk in the ways of God. Keep anger and
malice far away from you. Ask for God’s help in your prayer to reflect Christ before
your spouse. Also pray that you will obey God’s word and not be ashamed before
those you profess your faith. Obey the commandments of God concerning marriage.
Thought for the day: Be perfect in your marriage even if married to an unbeliever.
Song for the day: I am ready to obey your word … the living word of God
Bible reading for the day: Song of Solomon 1-3; 2 Corinthians 12
