As Christians, we are all aware of the fact that marriage is an institution ordained by God for a very specific purpose. First, God is a God of order, so that’s reflected in everything He does along with everything He’s doing. He has instituted marriage between a man and a woman not only for them to procreate so that family can become the main pillar of society but to build and nurture an intimate relationship between both of them.
It’s imperative for married couples to stay on high alert concerning the fact that they’re fighting against a very powerful, deceptive, and destructive enemy. The bible warns us in (Ephesians 6:12) that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Evidently, we’re currently living in such a horrifying age where assuming our God-given responsibilities compels us to rise above all the negativities that surround our lives. Everything seems to be going against what God is actually telling us to do for His sake. We’re being bombarded with various types of world viewpoints that are based purely on the deception of the enemy. God is trying to strengthen marriages in a way that reflects His initial plan while Satan is doing the exact opposite. The world is so messed up to the extent that trying to live a responsible life before God can make you become an object of mock and ridicule.
