Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Just as Marriage between couples doesn’t end on the day of the wedding but is a continuous process – till death; So is being a ‘convert’ in Christendom not just “a day” thing(when we give our lives to God) but it’s a continuous process also – till death unite us with God.
Most couples who lack the understanding of being Married – joined as one, rush into it and still fail to understand & make amends even when in it, opting for divorce and separation. Most of these couples already have a “polluted” orientation about marriage even before entering into it which aids divorce and separation.
Ephesians 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
The continuous negative actions of one of both parties in the Marriage lead to divorce oft times i.e, serving two masters at a time (adultery). This is caused by either having a lackaidasical attitude, OR taking for granted, the deep love of the spouse.
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
…This is just the same way most believers get divorced or separated from their first love ‘Jesus’ (getting out from under the ‘covering’) and the devil is having a field-day, disciplining them.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Rev 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
