It is a great encouragement for the follower of Jesus Christ, for, we have a personal relationship with God who never changes even though the world around us is changing rapidly. Our culture is changing and the worldview it carries is changing faster than we can imagine. At time, the circumstances of this world can frighten and leave the world hopeless; however, in Christ, we have a message of hope.
Even though the Bible has a great deal to say about the faithfulness in marriage, it is becoming more difficult today to live faithfully, in order for us to overcome this, we need to know and examine our culture. The culture itself is promoting happiness–individualized happiness–and we are seeking the happiness in another person rather than in God who is the source of all happiness.
The marriage in our culture is not only viewed through the lenses of pleasure and degraded in the name of personal happiness. We must rely on the Word of God and how it defines the marriage from God’s perspective.
