Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave unto his wife they shall be one flesh.
Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave unto his wife they shall be one flesh.
   Twenty years ago my wife and I were married both of us being unsaved.  At that time we had our own ideas about God (which were anti-scriptural) and had no concern about our soul.  How marvelous it is that God cared about our soul even when we did not.  As we look back at our marriage, my wife was in the marriage for herself and me for myself.  This is nothing other than selfishness.  So many of our disagreements occur because of this.  Now please do not misunderstand, we were then and still now very much in love with one another. 
   After being married for seven years and after the occurrence of some devastating events, we were both saved.  Linda was saved first, and then a month and a half later I was saved.  Neither of us were raised in Christian homes, we were not outstanding citizens of our communities, and had very little to offer Jesus.  But we learned that all that He wants is our hearts and for us to love Him. 
   Now no marriage is perfect.  Both husband and wife must realize that as individuals we have faults and that the other does as well.  No one is perfect.  I had many faults when we were saved.  But God is able.  All that God needs to restore and to rescue a marriage are two willing persons that are willing to operate His way.  We tried marriage our way and almost failed.  It was when we BOTH submitted to His Word and to let Him rule us that our marriage began to prosper, and prosper it has.  In the beginning individually we would put ourselves first and then attempt to put the other second.   But now we both as individuals make God to be first in our lives and then the other.  By making Him first in our lives we love, serve, honor, submit, and bless one another because we both know how much this pleases Him, and we love to please Him.  Is our marriage now perfect?  It is not.  We are still imperfect people that God is still working on.  But if you could see where Jesus brought me from to where I am today, you would know why I love Him so. 
Thank you for loving Jesus Linda Kaiser.  Thank you for loving me, the children, and our church.
