In marriage a husband and wife are joined together in all aspects as one. This mirrors the unity we know to exist between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Just as all three persons of the Trinity act in unison with each other, though separate, marriage partners must act in unison with each other. Matthew 19:6 “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Genesis 2:24 “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”
Marriage cannot be successful if there is division, if one or both partners are living totally separately from the other one. Mark 3:25 “If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”
CHALLENGE: Isolate one area of division in your marriage and pray for unity. Ask God to reveal to you anything in your heart that is threatening oneness with your spouse.
