God’s perfect happiness in your single or marital status.
Tuesday, June 5, 2001
You can have pseudo-happiness or God’s perfect happiness in your single or marital status.
If you have perfect happiness and impersonal love in marriage, you can resolve marital problems, ROM 12:18.
Neither divine institution #1, volition, nor divine institution #2, marriage, sustained and carried Adam and the woman in perfect environment.
A happy marriage = two happy people enter into a state of matrimony and in that state retain their happiness.
It is impossible for believers to have a happy marriage apart from spiritual growth, the execution of the PPOG, and each one possessing perfect happiness.
Those who are single who are waiting for their right man or right woman, 1CO 7:17.
1JO 4:4 “You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”
Those divorced with the legal right to remarry are in single status and have the bona fide right under certain conditions to remarry, DEU 24:1-4.
People are no better in marriage than they are as people.
People are never the same after marriage; they change either for the better or the worse.
1. Mental attitude depression in which the individual is in a state of sorrow and self-pity.
2. Passive depression in which the person becomes very passive toward the necessary functions of life with no initiation.
3. Aggressive depression in which the person becomes very violent in his reactions.
4. Moody depression which produces a negative, complaining and critical person.
For some believers even Christianity appears to be only another temporary source of relief similar to the world’s provision of escapism.
Man’s loneliness and anxiety is the result of an empty, aimless, meaningless life because of rejection of God’s plan for their life.
