|Marriage is Lifelong and Procreative|
By: Pastor Victor Borchard
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)
How long do you think God wanted Adam to hold fast to Eve? Hold fast for a day, month, year, decade or lifetime. Yes, the Bible teaches that marriage is for life (Romans 7:1-3). Unlike the iPhone, it doesn’t last until the next model comes out. Unlike our cars, it doesn’t last until a nicer one comes along. According to the Bible, marriage is lifelong, not disposable. Today, let’s hold fast. It means to stick together like glue. That glue is permanent.
Not only is marriage lifelong, it is also procreative. Adam and Eve would become one flesh. The fruit of their one flesh union was their son, Cain. Abel was another fruit of their union. Like all other kids, Cain and Abel must have had some resemblances to mom and some to dad. Maybe Abel had mom’s eyes and dad’s ears. The two became one flesh. It was God’s plan all along because marriage is procreative. Be fruitful and multiply. Since marriage is procreative, it is more than pleasure. God’s purpose for marriage is greater, bigger, vaster, wider, higher and deeper than my pleasure. There is pleasure in marriage, but also more than pleasure. According to the Bible, marriage is procreative, not merely pleasurable.
Today, may the Lord fortify us in the lifelong and procreative purposes of marriage according to the Bible and may they stop us from making relational mistakes. In Jesus’ name, amen.
