What does the Bible say about Marriage in Heaven? (Luke 20:34-35, NKJV)
No, you won’t be married, but how you live while you’re married will greatly affect your rewards in heaven.
No, you won’t, but how we live while married will greatly determine how well you live in Heaven.
Yet, when we don’t know the purpose of marriage:
The longer something exists, the easier it is to forget the original intent. The farther away you get from the original intent or purpose of something, the harder it is to remember purpose.
One of the main reasons we have so many broken marriages is because most have forgotten or never knew what God’s original intent for marriage was.
The 3 Functions of Marriage
Multiplication. (Genesis 1:27-28, NKJV)
To fill the earth with God’s glory. To produce offspring to fill the earth.
Transformation. (1 Corinthians 7:2-3, NKJV)
Husband and wife make each other better.
Avoid sexual sin.
Lust is using someone as an instrument for your own satisfaction.
Love is sacrificing all you can to meet the other persons needs and is willing to die in order to do it.
Love is based on giving, Lust is based on getting.
Illustration. (Ephesians 5:31-33, NKJV, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, CEV)
Picture of Christ and the church
Your marriage is to reflect what it’s like to have an intimate relationship with God.
You should both have Christ to meet your needs not simply your mate.
The key for a happy relationship is to know what your mate wants in a relationship or what your mate wants in the marriage.
