Hello Amazing One,
Trust your week has been splendid? Many thanks for stopping by, it always means a lot to us. On today’s edition, we’re reviewing a message by the lead Pastor, David Christian Centre, Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo. In this message, he speaks to God’s purpose for marriage. Please come along.
Didn’t the Lord make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard your heart; remain loyal to the wife of your youth.
Malachi 2:15 (TPT)
Referencing the above scripture, Pastor Kingsley points to one of God’s intentions for marriages- to raise godly seed.
Contrary to popular culture, God doesn’t want us to reproduce and have children just to have a younger generation carrying on our names and maybe looks. In fact, using the preacher’s words, “God ordains that you show your child what the love of God looks like.” That’s a huge responsibility, but not one you can’t handle if you are purposefully married.
Marriage is where it all begins. It takes two godly parents (male and female) to raise godly seeds. Little wonder God instructs His children not to be unequally yoked (2 Corinthians 6:14). In marriage, you have a responsibility of mirroring Christ to your seeds. It is your duty to show them the way of the Lord. I’d rest this review here, believing your appetite has been whet enough to dig in yourself.
Are there persons who are willing to partner with God in achieving His plan for the family? If you are yet to be married, you have a great opportunity to choose a partner with whom you’d purposefully carry out this assignment. If you are already married but didn’t know this earlier, receive the help of God to make amends in Jesus name. Amen.
Please listen to the message here. You can be sure Pastor Kingsley also laced his delivery with lots of humour.
Furthermore, we’d be reviewing this and two other messages at our next book club meeting. It’s happening on November 5th 2022 by 7 pm (WAT). This link gets you in. See you there.
God’s blessings always,
