Marriage? What?

1 Cor. 7:32-35, “I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs – how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world – how he can please his wife – and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world – how she can please her husband.”

As radical as that verse is, there is one point I believe we can take from it without debating aspects of marriage. The point is, to serve God. Luke 2:37, we should serve God with fasting and praying. Luke 4:8, We should worship only God and nothing else and no one else. Acts 20:19, We serve God humbly attracting attention to God, not ourselves.  John 12:26 says, “If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.”

I will keep this short. A Christian will serve God because God (The Holy Spirit) is in the Christian. There are legalistic workers and there are believers with no fruit. Then there are those who break boundaries and strongholds, who take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ, who produce fruit. All this is done through the work of the Holy Spirit.

Your wife is not the most important person in your life. Your Husband is not the most important person in your life. Your job, your money, your security, your worries, your hobbies, your relatives all come after God, not before. The positive Goal of pushing what you deem important to the forefront of your agenda fails in comparison to what would happen if you would place all those things under God and after God. True peace and understanding comes from those who place their trust in the Lord.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
