BIBLE VERSES

IN JESUS I TRUST

Matthew 1 verse 20-21

It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to commit adultery, and anyone who marries a woman so divorced commits adultery.

In the old testament in the book of Deuteronomy permission was given to the man to divorce his wife for other reasons besides adultery. But Jesus is now making it very clear things have changed. Only marital unfaithfulness (adultery) can a divorce be granted in Gods eyes. If we divorce now by any other reason than adultery, it’s now putting the sin of adultery on the woman and anybody who marries her. Do you think that is fair? No, it’s not.

I seem to think in today’s life a lot of people tend to take marriage very likely. There is no essence of true commitment. The ability to end a marriage is to easy. Marriage is sacred and for life, so let’s keep it that way. Get hold of the marriage vows, read and understand them before marriage. Also, ask God for guidance through scripture. God will help you. I have been happily married for 24yrs and are looking forward to many more.
