PASTOR’S MARRIAGE
 Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (Heb 13:4)Ever tried asking a single sister what kind of man she wants for a husband? A very 
common answer you are bound to get is “a
 
God fearing man”. The second
consideration may be money and not the other way round. By extension, but for fearof the responsibilities of the wife of a man of God, almost all ladies would love tomarry a pastor.In some churches, it is a major prerequisite that a believer be first married before he ispromoted to the office of a pastor. Due to preference of pastors as husband prospectsby majority of sisters, some churches went further to forbid a pastor from marrying from his parish. Did they foresee the life drama that took place in one popular churchin Nigeria when the pastor lost his wife? This successful pastor, still in his late thirties lost his wife to HIV unknown to thechurch members and most eligible single sisters who were scheming to become his
 wife. Christians are fond of confirming God’s approval of their marriage partners
through dreams.God speaks to us through dreams but to a Christian who is yet to mature in the thingsof the Lord, dreams at night could arise from the activities of the mind during the day.If a sister preoccupies her mind fantasizing about marrying her pastor for instance,she will definitely see herself getting married to the pastor in the dream. There was serious confusion in the church of this man of God as sisters upon sistersapproached him for counseling but ended up sharing with him how they saw themselves getting married to him in one dream or revelation. The man of God knew he had to do something very fast before the entire work of God in his hands goes upin flames. The pastor was very committed to a fellowship of people living with HIV/AIDS hehelp to set up when they first discovered that the wife was HIV positive and he by extension was also infected. How the wife contracted HIV was unknown but shecontracted whilst they were still in the world. They got married as unbelievers. The pastor was doing a very great work in showing love, comforting and restoring hope to those living with HIV/AIDS, especially in his church. Yes, you heard meright. Church members who came to him for counseling after contracting the disease
