Only One Marriage!

A wife should put her husband first, as she does the Lord.  A husband is the head of his wife, as Christ is the head and the Savior of the church, which is his own body.  Wives should always put their husbands first, as the church puts Christ first.  A husband should love his wife as much as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it.  He made the church holy by the power of his word, and he made it pure by washing it with water.  Christ did this, so that he would have a glorious and holy church, without faults or spots or wrinkles or any other flaws.

Ephesians 5: 22 - 27

When death comes, a marriage on earth ends.  For the surviving spouse it is very, very hard to endure.  I am told that the loneliness is overwhelming.  Someone once told me that a good marriage is like “Heaven on earth,” and a bad marriage is like Hell!  There is more truth to that than you might think.

There is marriage in Heaven, but it is only one marriage.  Christ and His Bride will experience the joys of marital bliss forever.  Since there is no death in Heaven, that marriage will never end.

So, if you are part of His “glorious and holy church” you are destined for an eternal future that is beyond your fondest imagination!

“Lord Jesus, help me to be ready to leave this earth and enter the joys of Heaven, and be with You forever!  Praise Your Holy Name, now and forever.  Amen.”
