Marriage is your Ministry

In today's segment, we are addressing the responsibilities of the two people who have joined to become one.
Yes, there are responsibilities that we have to each other as a married people. Our performance as it pertains to our day to day commitments and obligations solely depends on our willingness to, if you will, play by the rules, God's rules to be clear.
The Bible teaches us in II Timothy 4:5: to make full proof of our ministry. What does it mean and how is ministry related? I'm so glad you asked that question.
Today's society thrives on traditions and styles so, until we become creatures of parallel. By that I mean, we do what we see! What better way to set a trend, then by example! In fact, the way we interact with each other is the influence or the "testimony" you want others to see. Get my point? People are inspired by what they see.
Hear the scriptures: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven". Matthew 5:16. This is where your responsibility comes into play.
Allowing God's Word to impact your life so that it impacts your marriage, to impact the world, just by what they see! Starting to get the picture? It's your ministry! Alleluia!
That's right, YOUR MARRIAGE IS ACTUALLY A MINISTRY. Why do you think that God fashioned the Church after a marriage: Husbands love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it. . . Ephesians 5:25., so that through you, your marriage that is, may impact or influence the world by seeing the application of Oneness! How can you become one with the heavenly Father when you can't even become one with one another? But God, through the marriage example shows us how.
Praise God for His wisdom and instruction!
My friends, today you have received one of God's revelations. . .the revelation of Evangelism., and by the way, it is the message for today! MARRIAGE IS YOUR MINISTRY!
Always be Blessed!
