“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.’”

Marriage was made for communication. Adam said this is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. If you take that passage and go all the way to Ephesians 5, you’ll find out that the Bible also uses that as an analogy for Christ and the church. A husband and his wife are to communicate a principle. They are to be a picture of the Church and the Lord Jesus Christ. Did you know the greatest sermons preached on Earth are not necessarily preached from pulpits, but from homes like yours? The greatest testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ is a Christian home. Christianity in the Early Church went from house to house. That does not mean somebody went down a street knocking on every door. What that means is our homes are to give praise to Him. You see, it’s not your marriage; it’s His marriage. It’s not your home, it’s His home. They’re not your children; they belong to Him. Marriage is to communicate praise to our great God. Your home is to be the center of God’s glory.
Write out the hopes you have for your family and loved ones, then pray and surrender your desires for them, asking God to show them who He is.
