Honor marriage

exodus-20-14“You shall not commit adultery.
Exodus 20:14

As we give thought to God’s command to honor our marriages, I immediately think of the serpent speaking to Eve, surely God did not say. As believers we must cast down his lies and invitation with the Word of God. Yes, God did For the [true] love of God is this: that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous). For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith (1 John 5:3-4).

The commandments of God are always for His glory, our blessing protection, and benefit. The enemy never includes in his invitations that his whispers are always meant to kill, steal, destroy, and devour.

As I have been in prayer regarding this command, seeking the Lord in regards to what He would like to say through this blog He brought me to several images which I have placed below…and then the Word of God.
