The Second Time Around

Many people have been mislead about the mith of "second marriages"; even when the first one was a total disaster. It is very common among the church to brand such people as being "out of the will of God".

Let's really see what God's Holy Word says about that! In the scriptures in Matthew 19, Jesus was presented with the question of Divorce. His reply however, was always one of Revelation and Salvation! What does that mean one will say: Simply this: God allows people to be joined together in His love. Why do you think the one phrase that stands out is: therefore what God hath joined together, let not man put asunder....

You see my friends, many of us have joined ourselves together and for the wrong reasons. Money, sex,.pregnancies, escape from the house, prestige, keeping up with the Jones, and many many other reasons that do not meet God's criteria for marriage. Let's be honest, the human element comes into play here. WE MAKE MISTAKES!!. But God is merciful and understanding and not willing that any should perish....

Be confident about your "second time around"; let your mistakes and failures become stepping stones for your future. Don't be deceived by judgements that are not scriptural. Let the Lord lead and guide you. Put God first in your Marriage and see if it doesn't make a difference. You'd be surprised how much the Lord really wants you to be happy. Remember, this is your day, if God is in it!
