bible verses on relationships – Holy Bible,

What God has joined together…
Those wedding rings are of my sister and her husband. I took three shots to make an HDR image, but somehow the overexposed shot looked just perfect, and the HDR image had so much noise! I think this is the only time where I have included an overexposed shot in my flickr page!
Sometimes I wonder about the meaning of this verse, and what is God’s opinion if we went into more details. Many Christians simply hold so tight to it that a woman can’t leave her husband even if he beats her up everyday! Others just brush the verse away as being outdated! But for most they hold on to it until it doesn’t satisfy their situation anymore then they brush it away! But what does it mean, really?
I think the line that holds the key to explain this passage of scripture is this, “What God has joined together”. Was our Lord Jesus Christ talking to His followers, Christians, or to humanity as whole? I mean, we can say that every man who marries a woman God has joined together, because He created man and woman to be joined in marriage. But then, what about a man who leaves his wife for no reason other than he wants to marry another? Did God join him and his second wife together? I mean, he is still a man, and his second wife is a woman.
What about Christians? Has every Christian couple gotten married according to God’s will for their lives? If “No”, then does it still count as “God has joined together”? If “Yes”, then why is divorce rate among Christians just as high as among non-Christians?
And if our Lord meant this verse to people who got married according to God’s will, which is a small percentage of population, then does it mean that all the rest are ok to get divorced whenever they wanted to?
I think it is important to read the rest of the New Testament, especially the letters of Paul to understand God’s will for marriage, such as 1 Corinthians 7. Divorce is certainly one of those topics that are very sensitive to discuss.
All I know is that many become Christians and God starts to fix their lives, but there is nothing they could do about what they had done in the past before God changes them. But that doesn’t matter because they are a new creation in Christ now, and the old things has past.
I also know that you can’t make someone loves you and stay with you—if they don’t want to there is nothing you can do about it. You could be “perfect”, but if the other person doesn’t want you then you can’t have a relationship with them. If you don’t believe this is true then ask God! He is perfect but how many choose to have a relationship with Him? A successful relationship is like clapping, you need both hands to make a sound, and God is like the air that carries the sound.
That’s it, and I hope you like the picture 🙂

Pressing on Toward the Goal
I just read these verses few days ago so they were still fresh in my mind when I looked at this photo and asked, “Can I do anything with it before posting it on flickr?” And those verses just came back to my attention. So I hope you like it 🙂
I believe the most important goal to press toward is to know our heavenly Father more intimately and to experience Him personally. We cannot say that we know God without knowing the ways of God, and that can happen only by talking to Him, but most importantly listening to Him and obeying Him.
Sometimes we might even need to pray asking God to send painful times to make us uncomfortable, this way He can get our attention and forces a change in us, and thereof our lives. We need to ask Him, daily if necessary, to bring to our awareness those things that are hindering our relationship with Him, the growth of our faith and trust in Him, and hindering the growth of character to be more like the character of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But we must be careful knowing that those prayers are serious prayers, and God honours such prayers and He intends to carry them out until they are complete in us. And if we change our minds later, we will lose His peace. So if we make a vow to God or a commitment we have to carry it through by allowing His to do His work in us. And if we don’t make such commitments to God, then we can never say we know God because we have never experienced God, nor know His ways.
