prayer diary Friday 28 February 2014 (Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

“a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.’ 
Mark 10.7-9

Reflection
Christian marriage is more than a mere civil contract. Through it the couple witness to the world their faith in God through their adherence to his law.

  1. I don't know if my last comment posted or not.

    I pointed out that marriage is the emulation of God. Just as the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and Son, so, too, do children proceed from Mother and Father. Marriage is about emulation of God... His selflessness, His creative spark, and His unconditional love.

  2. Hi Gina, thanks for the comment. I guess your last one must have been lost in the ether, because the last comment I have from you is on a sermon a couple of weeks back. I hope all is well with you & that you're 'all geared up' for Lent!
