“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16
Many people have learnt about marriage from everywhere but the word of God.
Love is not a mere emotion for a Christian. It is a fruit of the spirit. If you want to see more love manifest in your relationship, you’d need to walk in the spirit.
The cure for selfishness and everything contrary to love is deeper than moral instructions. Selfishness is engrained into the fabric of the fallen man.
The fruit of the fallen nature are predictable. The fruit of a regenerate spirit are predictable as well. Both have strong involvement in the outcome of a relationship.
Many people do not realise how connected their walk with God is to the success of their relationships and marriage.
Let me put it this way the fervency of your walk with God is directly proportional to the success of your marriage . The more you begin to see fruits of the spirit manifest in your life the more you begin to see success and bliss in your marriage.
Let me put it another way walking in the spirit will save your marriage.
Perhaps you haven’t noticed what the Bible said the fruit of the flesh is? The 1st thing mentioned is adultery. Walking in the flesh will affect your marriage. What on the other hand, are the ingredients of a successful marriage? Love, joy, peace, longsuffering,gentleness and goodness. Again I say to you that the vibrancy of your walk with God is directly proportional to the success of your marriage.
So if you are to have a successful marriage, start introducing simple things like a daily prayer life. This will do a better job curbing anger than an anger management course. Pray together as a couple.
