Previously, I explained to you the mystery of two becoming one. Today, I want to show you another mystery of two people becoming one flesh. The mystery of two people becoming one life is that the bride shares the husband’s life. Two separate individuals are brought together, and they live one life. They should not go their separate ways within marriage but submit themselves to one another in the fear of God. The husband should love the wife as his own flesh, and the wife should submit to her husband.
Marriage is not a necessary evil; your perspectives of it makes it what it is to you. God designed and programmed your marriage to work, but how you see it will determine whether it works for you or not. You must agree with God that when you enter into a holy matrimony, you are stepping into a better way of life. Most couples lack this understanding, so they groan about marriage instead of enjoying its covenant benefits. You shall not fail, in Jesus name! If a couple is truly merged in the spirit, soul and body, nothing will be impossible unto them; this is the force of unity at work. This is the original concept of God for marriage, for couples to enjoy the benefits of oneness. The concept of oneness teaches the believer so many lessons. Firstly, if you are truly one with your spouse, you will treat him/her as yourself. The Bible says, For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it… (Ephesians 5:29). If you, for any reason, hate your spouse, it is a sign that you are not united with him/her. The Bible says, Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them… (Matthew 7:12). Whatever you cannot do to yourself, you will not do to your spouse. An understanding of this will chase away selfishness from your home and family.
There is a fascinating story of the effect of oneness in Genesis 11:1-9. The people were one, and they had one language; that means they were united. As such, they purposed to build a tower and a city that would reach heaven. Because of their oneness, even though it looked like an impossible task, God Himself acknowledged the possibility. The Word of God says, And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do (Genesis 11:6). Secondly, the concept of oneness will make it easy for a husband and wife to share their bodies freely with one another. It will also make it possible to derive greater pleasure from their physical union, which is their procreative power. If this concept is understood and followed, it will reduce the problem experienced in the home today. The greatest advertisement for the power of the gospel is the Christian home, and that is what will commend the gospel to this decadent age is the Christian marriage. That is why satan is attacking it with relentless force. We need to prayerfully sit down, locate the proper Word of God and put our marriages right.
However, to fulfil God’s purpose for your marriage, the first step is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour. Please pray this prayer with faith in your heart: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank You for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
