JOHN HAGEE 9TH FEBRUARY 2024 DAILY DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
John Hagee 9th February 2024 Daily Devotional, Friday Devotional Message. As you study today’s devotional, remember this; “Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (NLT)
But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. – Mark 10:6-8
God built all of civilization upon one relationship — marriage between a man and a woman. By His design, the family unit is the foundation of society.
At creation, God fashioned the male and female. The only marriage relationship that God endorses in Scripture is the union between a man and a woman. A man separates himself from his parents to be joined to a wife, and the two become one flesh.
Marriage and virtue are to be respected by all (Hebrews 13:4). Paul goes on to correlate the marriage between a man and a woman with the relationship that Christ enjoys with the church – a “great mystery” ( Ephesians 5:32).
Jesus calls each of us to honor one another. Wives should submit to and support their husbands…in the same way that they defer to Christ. Husbands must submit to and go all out in love for their wives…in the same way that Christ loved the church.
Submitting, nourishing, cherishing, respecting, loving – are these the words that describe our relationships? Do our marriages reflect the monumental love that compelled Jesus to lay down His life for His bride?
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. As you submit to God first and then to your spouse, may your relationship be marked by the deep love of our Lord. May you reflect His goodness and grace always. Amen and Amen.
