Marriage is sweet when is built and sustained in a Christian way. It is said in the book of John 16 v 33 “ I have told you these things that in me you may have peace, in the world you will have troubles. In this article, I will show you some ways of building a Christian marriage that will last.
The verse of the scripture we read above simply shows that any marriage that is not connected to Christ would surely not stand the taste of time. And so it is better to build on Christ than the world.
If that is what you want to know, then let’s do so.
15 Important Steps To Building A Christian Marriage.
1) Start your marriage with God and in God.
If you are still searching, then the best thing you must try to do is to commit every step of your way to God. Let him have the pre-eminence of everything.
Proverbs 3 v 5 say’s” trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your part.
If you are already married, it is not yet too late for you. You can still ask God to take over from where you are now. Remember it cannot be done by your power or might, but by His Spirit.
2) Pray together always as a family.
This is the most important thing to do. You must pray for your family and with your family. Bible said ‘pray without season”. Do not let your prayer be only when there is trouble.
Always have your family devotions. Commit all to Him and things will move smoothly.
3) It depends only on God’s Plan for Your Marriage.
Be sure to search the scriptures, every day to know the plans of God for your marriage. It can only work for you if the Lord has said it. Jeremiah 29 v 11 said “For I know the thought that I think towards you, thoughts of peace and not of evil. That is the reason why you must give it up for Him alone.
