 Marriage is much more than sexual convenience. It is complex, but has a singularfoundation. That foundation is COMMITMENT by choice. It is a choice that one makesto a single person until death separates them. It's substance must be more than atemporary whim, excitement, or advantage. That choice can give courage, determinationand final success. Basically it is this to our spouse:
"I am married to you! NOTHINGshall separate me from you but death, as far as I am concerned. You can rely onthat until death separates us."
That is exactly what your marriage vows state. Make itwork!Whence does one get the stamina to sustain fifty to seventy five years of singulardevotion to one individual? In that span of time, temptations may come to indulge in sexsins. It must never be done! In fifty to seventy five years the elected spouse is going tochange. Their physical beauty is going to wane. The Scripture states a true fact: "we alldo fade as a leaf." What holds a spouse true to their wife or husband? Emotions canchange, or cease altogether. What holds a person true to their spouse?The answer to that is found in Moral Conviction that inhibits any transgression of themarriage vows. There must be an anchor that can withstand the winds of change and of temptation. That anchor is the most secure when it is attached to the eternal Word of God.In this book, we will consider the role that God's Word and Will play in human marriage.It is truly God's will that husband and wife shall live long, satisfying and blessed lives.Trust in and follow the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Way, The Truth, and The Life in allthings. Amen.
 In Psalms 24:1 God tells us:
"The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein."
Revelation 4:11 states:
Thou are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."
John 1:1-4:
 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was thelight of men."
Then in Genesis 1:1 it is written:
"In the beginning, God created the heaven and theearth."
The above Scriptures proclaim that the world and every thing in it is God's property, withthe exception of sin. He created the heavens and earth and the seas, and everything inthem, except sin. As far as the facts are concerned, it matters not at all, whether mankindbelieves the Scriptural Record, the Holy Bible, or not. That is, Divine ownership is notpredicated upon human approval. Nothing of human endeavor, or esteem or scorn canchange the facts.Bad results occur when people choose their own ideas in opposition to God's Word. Suchunbelief also will incur God's judgment, but it cannot change or eradicate what God hasestablished.As noted in John 1:3, all things were made by God. In Genesis 1:31 God examined everything that He had made, and declared that it was all very good. Consider the words"everything", and "all things" in these two Scriptures. In context, the earth would be athing. An animal would be a thing. A human soul would be a thing. Marriage, I.e., theInstitution, would be a thing. God made all THINGS, according to the Scripture.Marriage is a thing that God created, examined, and called very good. He made it, andtherefore, it is HIS Institution. That is the basis of His authority and claims for marriage.Marriage is not the idea of human beings. It is the Institution and will of God. He made itin order to carry out His eternal purposes, as we noted in Revelation 4:11, quoted above.Since God made marriage, and instituted it for man, marriage is sacred. The human body,which God made in His Own image and after His Likeness, is sacred. The sex actbetween husband and wife, is holy and sacred, because God sanctified and blessed it. Buta sex act between a man and a woman not married to each other, is a desecration of theirbodies and of the Divine Institution. God forbids it, and calls any breach of His ordinancea sin.
