Apostle Sergio Enríquez.
Talking about marriage is a difficult subject to deal because it is a matter of two; not only to point out who is guilty or who committed the fault, it is necessary to deeply look into the family dynamics in order to see why they have a problem. If we go to the very beginning we see that the Lord created man first and this gives them the right to lead; but also, the Lord said it is not good for the men to be alone.
Ecclesiastes 4:9 (ESV)Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.
Two have a good reward for their labor. Now well we see that in this verse we read that both of them have to play their role: man, as a provider and woman as the spouse; even in the Guatemalan law says that he is in charge if providing for the family. But this reward goes beyond of the economic factor.
Genesis 11:6 (ESV)And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.
Nothing will divide your home if we work together in harmony.
Deuteronomy 32:30 (ESV)How could one have chased a thousand, and two have put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had given them up?
In this verse we read one of the rewards we will get if we work together we will get the 1,000% of pay.
1Corinthians 7:5 (ESV)Donot deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
In this verse we read other type of consent, and in this way, we will protect our family; communicating with each other our objectives and in this way, we will reach it.
Acts 15:25 (ESV)it has seemed good to us, having come to one accord, to choose men and send them to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,
In this verse we read how the church got together in consent to do something and this was the solution for a problem. We have to learn and talk among the family.
Our family needs a gigantic shield that is called consent; this will protect our family from attacks from the enemy. Amen!
