Today we take time out in this busy world to honor the sanctity of marriage. To truly experience oneness in marriage, we must first experience the power that comes from oneness with God. Oneness in marriage is the result of fulfilling God’s purposes and following God’s plan for marriage. Oneness with God begins as we establish a relationship with Him and continues as we experience an ongoing relationship with Him. Pastor Leonard and Diana Navarre of Valley View Christian Church in Edgewood, New Mexico are certainly role models for us all in God’s purpose for marriage! Leonard and Diana celebrate 46 years of marriage today! God Bless you both! We love you so very much!
Marriage is at the center of God’s purpose for mankind. God joined a man and a woman together so that they would mirror His image. He called this union marriage. Their oneness reflects the character and unity of God. Matthew 19:4-6 and John 17: 22-23. Their oneness is a living picture of this intimate relationship between Jesus Christ and His followers. Ephesians 5: 22-33.
Their oneness is expressed within a lifetime commitment to one another.
Couples who mirror God’s image experience oneness in their marriage.
Sharon and I thank Pastor Leonard and Diana for being our role model!
God has blessed us so much with Pastor Leonard and Diana, they are Chief Advisors to us here at FGGAM!
I will leave you with this….Sharon and I learned a lot about marriage several years ago at the Family Life “Weekend to Remember” I encourage you to attend one of their conferences. We still use the workbook, as marriage is a work in progress! Amen!
