Love and Marriage ( Inspirational Mondays)
My husband and I are doing a weekly devotion on Love and Marriage and I am very excited about what God is doing in us. The passage challenged us to set aside the poor behaviors that always get in the way of a healthy marriage and put on the Character of Christ. We prayed together that God will give us determination to put his Character on again and again daily. I encourage you to pray with your spouse and work together to put on the character of God. What is the hardest for you to get rid of and the one Godly trait that is the hardest to clothe yourself in?
Colossians 3:-1-9 (CEV)
"You have been raised to life with Christ. Now set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God's right side. Think about what is up there, not about what is here on earth. You died, which means that your life is hidden with Christ, who sits beside God. Christ gives meaning to your life, and when he appears, you will also appear with him in glory. Don't be controlled by your body. Kill every desire for the wrong kind of sex. Don't be immoral or indecent or have evil thoughts. Don't be greedy, which is the same as worshipping idols. God is angry with people who disobey him by doing these things. And this is exactly what you did, when you lived among people who behaved in this way. But now you must stop doing such things. You must quit being angry, hateful, and evil. You must no loner say insulting or cruel things about others. And stop lying to each other. You have given up your old ways of life with its habits."
