MATTHEW 5:31_It hath been said, whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement.
More law transformation. Divorce has always been a heart-wrenching, painful, experience – especially when children are involved. Jesus wants to save His disciples from this kind of pain. When someone you love hurts, you hurt as well, and Jesus loves His followers.
Mark 10:5-9 (KJV), “And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept [divorce]. 6But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. 9What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Jesus teaches the original plan – if two become one that is how they should remain.
When the only two people on the planet chose disobedience, and sin entered their hearts, their hearts hardened. A hard heart is difficult to live with. When two are put together it’s doubly hard.
The only hope is The Great Transformer.
Lord of All, Please give me wisdom concerning the very difficult situations in life. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ created marriage to be forever—He will teach me!
