Do Not Cut Him Out

I was flipping through the web and stumbled upon this bible passage John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” And I started looking at it from the marriage point of view and was amazed at how many people including Christians leave God out of their marriages. Even those planning to get married leave God out of their marriage plans. I am not even talking about seeking God’s face when picking out a life partner we would have to leave that for another day. I am talking about the little stuff like holding hands and speaking God’s words into your marriage or potential marriage.

It’s amazing but true that people plan to get married without getting the author of marriage himself involved or they get married and move around like God doesn’t exist and when trouble shows up they begin to panic because they have either been disconnected from their source (God) or they were not connected at all in the first place.
I can imagine trying to turn on the light bulb when the power has been disconnected for not paying your electricity bills or expecting your house to be powered by electricity when no connection has been established prior to this time. You and I both know that that’s not going to happen. You either have to pay your electricity bills or you get some power connection in your house.

All I am trying to say is this….. God is the life line of every marriage do not cut him out or forget to continuously include him in yours, let alone plan to get married without getting him involved because marriage can be likened to a very long ride and believe me you are going to need his company along the way. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT CUT HIM OUT you are going to need him.

    i like the part of this write that says continually and i would add, in every lil detail. Daniel, thy God whom thou servest continually is he able to save thee… we must continually be connected to the source of our relationship and existence cos cut off from him is like a way that seemeth right but leads to destruction….

    A week ago I read John 15 when I saw this reminder. This reinforced why I ask God’s input in everything what I should do, eat, wear, etc each day. It makes the day so much more productive and easy flowing when God is included in all aspects of our lives. What stood out to me as well is that “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” John 15: 15-16…Continue to share this
