Yesterday, I went to Jeremy and Mishell’s wedding. I have known Jeremy since he was born and it was a blessing to watch him grow into a man and choose his beautiful bride. The two of them and now “Mr. and Mrs.” They have entered into a covenant of marriage and are now “one flesh” according to the Word of God. What some people may not understand is that God makes things very tangible to His creation. What I mean is, just as this couple is now considered “one” by way of their new relationship. It would be hard to think of them as completely separate people since they are now husband and wife. People do not and should not lose their personalities because of their union, but most likely will enhance one another and bring out the best in each other- which is actually complimenting to each other.
My relationship with the Lord is similar. When I accepted Jesus, He started to bring out the best in me. He did not ask me to give up my personality. He wooed me!. He said “come as you are.” I didn’t have to change first. I started to change as I grew in my relationship with the Lord. My first Pastor said something to the effect “that God loves us to save us as we are. But, He also loves us enough not to let us stay as we are.” Every relationship grows and changes in this life. Jesus is the groom and His church is the bride; and it is through this relationship we begin to transform into Jesus’s image. Once we accept Jesus into our hearts, it is then God sees us and He also sees His Son. Two are now one. In marriage, there seems to be a point when the couple start resembling one another,. So it is when we accept God’s proposal and enter into God’s covenant of marriage with Him.
I encourage you to call upon the name of Jesus (if you have not done so already) and enter into a marriage that cannot be broken by Him. God’s word says ” …I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) Who else can make a promise like that?
In His Love,
