Building a Marriage God instituted marriage in the book of Genesis because He knew that “it was not good for man to be alone”. (Gen 2:18) Jesus said “what God has joined together, man should not separate”. (Matt 19:6) Yet in our society more than 50% of all marriages end in divorce or separation. The major reasons given for marriage failure are : Selfishness, financial problems, in-law problems, sexual problems, and pornography. Selfishness is seen in many ways. When the goal of a person is their own pleasure and not that of their mate, the selfishness can rip apart the relationship. A marriage between ‘spoiled’ individuals, where each is used to having their own way is in for a rough time. Marriage is to be like the relationship between Christ and the church – where each gives total commitment and attention to the other. This is only possible when both parties have their first allegiance to Christ, then to each other. Eph 5:28-33 Money and problems with its use are usually involved somehow in marital discord. Failure to understand the proper use of credit has lead to many divorces. Parents need to teach the necessity and importance of paying debts on time. Rom 13:7-8 Society promotes the concept of covetousness in young couples who feel that they need or ‘deserve’ everything right away although it may have taken their parents years to attain some of those things. Young people must be taught the role of trust and faithfulness in marriage. Many believe that the important things in life are a big house, social standing, fine cars, and an abundance of material things. Hollywood and pornography lead to unrealistic expectations which destroy the marital oneness. A lack of Bible study, and indifference toward God and worship as a couple will cause couples to have few convictions about what is right and wrong in the marriage relationship. The proper place for the fulfillment of sexual desires is in marriage. 1Cor 7:1-5 This is another area in which selfishness must give way to tender, loving care for each others needs. And each of the parties in a marriage needs to understand that their commitment is now to each other, and not to their individual families. Gen 2:24 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” They are to become one in purpose, one in action, one in mind, as well as one in body. The oneness that God intends can be achieved only when the marriage is based on faith in and obedience to the commands of Jesus Christ. Have you obeyed His commands? John14:15 “Jesus said: If you love me, you will obey what I command.” Arlington Church of Christ Cincinnati, OH

Soul and Spirit - Is there a difference? In Hebrews 4:12, the writer says: “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” The distinction between the soul and spirit is very difficult, yet we are told that the word of God is powerful enough to do it. Most seem to think that the two are the same thing, yet this verse indicates that while they are similar that there is a difference. https://churchofchristscripture.com/soul-and-spirit According to Nelson’s Bible Dictionary – “Soul” has two meanings in scripture: 1) That which makes the body alive (life in the physical body) and example is found in Gen 35:18 …”As her soul was departing – she named her son Ben-oni.” 2) The inner life of a person, the personality. An example of this use is Gen 2:7 “The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living soul.” The word ‘soul’ can refer to either physical life or the spiritual life depending on the context. In the verse – Matt 16:25-26 “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” The same Greek word translated ‘life’ in verse 25, is translated ‘soul’ in verse 26. In verse 25, it is referring to the physical life, and in verse 26, to the spiritual life. “Spirit” comes from the Greek pneuma which means breath or wind. It refers to the vital principle given by God, the ‘spirit’. It is the part of man that is made in the image of God. It is used in verses like Gen 2:7 “ the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath (spirit) of life, and the man became a living soul.” Also see Heb 12:23 The scripture says in James 2:26 “the body without the spirit is dead..” which indicates that although the body may die, the spirit lives on. The spirit is the part of man that is made in God’s image and lives eternally. See Ecc 12:7 So the ‘spirit’ is the part of man that lives on, while the ‘soul’ (physical life) can die. See Josh 10:28, Josh 11:11 KJV These two words are so closely associated though that distinguishing between the two is very difficult. In some passages, the word ‘soul’ is used to mean the spiritual life that continues on after death, and not just the physical life. So it may be said that the ‘spirit’ is the eternal part of man, made in the image of God, that will live forever in either heaven or hell. The ‘soul’ is the resulting life in the body, and may refer to either the physical life or the spiritual life in the new spiritual body (depending on the context). The body is made ‘alive’ by the combination of the soul and spirit. 1Thess 5:23 “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body, be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Actions or Words? Matthew 26:7 A woman came unto him having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at the table. People always said that “actions speak louder than words”. How very true. Nothing speaks louder about our commitment to Christ than how we prioritize spending our time and money. The one commodity every person alive today has in common is time. We make conscious decisions how we will spend that time, such as going to school, work, the time we watch television, read, hopefully have our quiet time with the Lord, go shopping, etc. We consciously decide how we will spend our day. For most of us, our time is very valuable. We guard it. We carefully schedule it. We recognize that it is a precious resource. It is critical to make the most of each day since when it is over it is never coming back. And think about this: Time, like everything else belongs to God. It is no different from anything else we have in this life. It belongs to Him! Only by His grace we have this commodity we call time to use each day. He gives it to us to achieve our purpose in this life, to serve and glorify Him. Recognize each day as the gift from God that it is. Recognize that it has been given to you for the purpose of serving Him. That service comes in many forms. Most are called to serve Him in the day to day places life takes us, such as: the classroom, our place of work, the playground, the shopping mall. Most of us serve Him throughout our normal day to day routine. The danger is that we forget how precious time really is, and that like everything else. it belongs to Him.
Our Purpose: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matthew 28:19-20 If we do just what our Lord commanded we know that our salvation is certain. Come with us as we go back to the Bible, back to Christ and His church!

Defending Against Temptation What are some of the defenses we can use against temptation ? 1) Self-respect – when Nehemiah was tempted by Shemiah to hide in the temple in order to save his life, Nehemiah said: Neh 6:11 “But I said, ‘Should a man like me run away? Or should one like me go into the temple to save his life ? I will not go !’” We know ourselves and we have to live with the consequences of our actions. 2) Our Christian identity – we are children of the King, children of God, chosen people (Col 3:12) We have a responsibility and a reputation to uphold, not just for ourselves, but as the representatives of God. 3) Consider the effects of sin – what will this do to the relationship with my family, friends, or with God? What physical effects will this have on me and others – diseases, suffering, financial difficulties, and the spiritual consequences of an eternity in hell. 4) Prayer – Jesus told his disciples to pray to overcome their temptation (Mark 4:38) 5) The presence of Jesus – He is always with us; the Holy Spirit dwells in us – how can we sin against the one who died for us ? Although God permits Satan to tempt us, He has placed limits on the temptation and always provides a way for us to escape – 1Cor 10:13 “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you are able to bear. But when you are tempted, He will provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” Have you sought the ‘way out’ when faced with the pressure of temptation ? Do you feel the presence of God with you at all times? Have you prayed for His help in times of testing? (Ps 107:1-6) Satan is no match for the Lord. Hide yourself in Him and you will find the armor you need to win the fight. Eph 6:13-18 “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all of this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions withal kinds of prayers and requests.” Use the defenses the Lord provides.
