MESSAGE:

Nothing punctures and deflates a society and its civilizations more drastically than wrong attitude towards women and faulty marriages. The collapse of the Roman Empire as a result of flagrant abuse of womanhood and marriage quickly comes to mind. History had it that Roman artists and painters debased their womenfolk and indeed society by painting women and parts of their body on all imaginable objects. The consequences of those actions were too far reaching for that society. Their supremacy as a world power then could not be sustained because of moral lapses.

In our text, Ezra the priest knew that the nobles and commoners in Israel were deeply involved in violating divine injunctions on marriage for Israelites. He knew vividly the severe consequences of their action and as such called all the people of Israel to a solemn assembly to review and correct their missteps. The response of these offenders who felt so embarrassingly guilty is commendable. It was recorded that “they gave their hands that they should put away their wives; being guilty they offered a ram… for their trespass” (Ezra 10:19).

If we hope to have a stable and more peaceful society, then we must go back to uphold God’s standard on marriage and family life. We must oppose every attempt of the devil to corrupt this standard through the various marriage perversions such as multiple marriages, and same-sex marriage, divorce or the cohabitation of partners without the marriage vow. As Christians, our marriages and family life should be worthy examples for others to follow. We must learn to appease God by completely turning away from our misdeeds and making amends for a clean and clear conscience before God and all men.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When Christ is your Pillar and Guide, you can never go wrong in marriage.

COVER TO COVER: 1 THESSALONIANS 1-5.

MEDITATION

Christian separation: painful but needful

1. Marriages to the Gentiles (likened to the godless today) was clearly forbidden in the Bible Deuteronomy 7:3-6, Joshua 23:12-13, 2 Corinthians 6:14-17.

2. What are other “unequal yoke” that believers should have a clean separation from apart from business partnership and marriage? 2 Corinthians 6:14-17.

3. Ezra demanded repentance and restitution from wrong marriages while the New Testament law is “for better for worse”. The only option is to avoid wrong marriages and relationships totally from the outset.

4. Test yourselves by citing 4 passages in the NT that commanded ” for better for worse” for all married couples.

5. From the passages above, what are the reasons why God said NO to wrong marriages and partnerships?

Note: Any who claims to be wiser or smarter than God will, as a matter of time, reap the fruits of foolishness.

6. The practice of godly separation is painful. It may involve economic loss, emotional (and temporary) deprivation, eternal loss of relationships with loved ones, experience (temporary) of loneliness, etc.

Note: Those who are afraid of the temporal pain of separation in the name of Christ should be ready to spend eternity in eternal pain of hell fire. The choice is yours.
