BETTER AS ONE

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” Ephesians 5:31 NIV

Picture a tree standing tall with its roots intertwining beneath the surface. Each branch, though distinct, is connected to the same source, drawing strength from a shared foundation. Similarly, the Bible implores believers to build their marriages on the unshakable foundation of Christ.

Our anchor text echoes God’s idea of marriage: that two become one. This profound truth is not a mere suggestion but a divine design, an affirmation of God’s purpose for the covenant of marriage.

Just as the branches of the tree are united by their common root, believers are called to be deeply rooted in Christ, allowing His love to flow through every aspect of their marriage. This root provides  stability even in the storms of life.  As we become one unit we have to become united in goal and purpose, just like Amos 3:3 says “two cannot work together except they agree”.

In the hustle and bustle of daily living, it’s easy to lose sight of the oneness God desires for our marriages. Colossians 3:14 (NIV) reminds us of an essential ingredient: “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Love, the glue that binds, is not a fleeting emotion but a sacrificial commitment, mirroring Christ’s love for His Church.

Navigating the challenges of marriage and relationships requires intentional effort. Just as the tree doesn’t become mighty overnight, marriages grow stronger through prayer, communication, and shared devotion to God. Proverbs 24:3-4 (NIV) advises, “By wisdom, a house is built, and through understanding, it is established; through knowledge, its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”

Let your marriage be a testament to the transformative power of God’s love. Embrace the divine union, allowing His grace to shape your oneness.

As believers, let us continually seek God’s guidance in our marriages, yielding to His wisdom, and allowing His Word to shape our oneness. Through His grace, may our marriages become a testimony to the world of the beauty and strength found in becoming one in Christ.
