March is “Marriage” month!

I thought about a March Madness theme since I’m a basketball nut and since most people think marriage is madness, but instead, I decided to theme this month as March Marriages to focus upon God’s purpose for marriage which is good according to Genesis 2:18:

Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

God knew it was not good for man to be alone so He instituted marriage. Before the fall of mankind and sinful state of being, marriage was good – look at Genesis 2:24-25:

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Both of them were naked and transparent in their relationship together PRIOR to their own sin in Genesis 3:7:

Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.

Those fig leaves were necessary because now they knew they were naked since they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and disobeyed the Lord. The fig leaves separated them from a complete and honest relationship without sin.

Thus, marriage became a challenge according to the consequence in Genesis 3:16b:

“Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

Now, in a sinful and fallen world, there is a battle of the sexes that leads to many divorces. Unless people are submitted to Christ, their marriage will likely end in divorce these days due to this curse upon marriage due to mankind’s sin.

So, let’s focus on redeeming our marriages in the month of March and search the Word of God for answers to solve marriage problems.
