“Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
-Marriage is a life long union between an imperfect male & female; perfected through Christ. Marriage mirrors the family & acts like a laboratory to incubate, nature & train children in the ways of God so that they may come to maturity through Christ. We are reminded that marriage is honorable & the marriage bed undefiled; but fornicators & adulterous will be judged. Adultery exposes a marriage to divorce & more so those who marry the divorced woman commit adultery (Mat 5:32); but God calls us to forgiveness seventy times seven times. As human beings; we may never gain satisfaction when we rely on lust, alcohol, positions, materialism etc; since we keep pursuing more & more, but only in Christ can we find complete satisfaction through His unending love. Through illicit relationships; one sets a snare upon his soul & casts a chain around his own necks which leads to a big struggle when he want to withdraw; unless Christ grants him grace. These events may disorient the family setting, leading to the suffering of kids, each couple struggles through the process of divorce & may sometimes ends up being fatal as evidenced all over the media. We are reminded that we are fearfully & wonderfully made. Therefore; we should always be conformed to the image of Christ through living a holy life otherwise we end up rejecting God Who gives us His Holy Spirit (1 Thes 4:7-8). When we are fearful; then we embrace the fear of the Lord which leads to knowledge but fools despise wisdom & understanding (Prov 1:7). God is merciful & loves us with an everlasting love displayed through His sacrifice on the cross which brought redemption from all our sins & evil deeds leading to His grace.
You are our King of kings & Lord of lords Father; we thank You for Your graces upon our lives & families. Have mercy Lord on all those who are married & on the whole world. Liberate all those who have cast a snare upon their souls through fornication & adultery by Your precious blood Jesus. Have mercy on us for we have all sinned & fallen short of Your glory Lord, forgive us. Heal all those who are sick, those in prison, those who lack basic needs, those who are homeless, the street urchins, those who have been divorced or separated & us all in our various shortcomings that You may grant us Your grace always. Jesus You are the same yesterday, today & forever, we forever give You praise. Amen
