Ruth 1:16 KJV And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
The interesting part of the Holy Matrimony is the vow. So when it’s time for the vow, everyone present will adjust themselves consciously or unconsciously.
Vows are borne out of revelation. Wedding Vow isn’t an exception. The journey of some months and probably years. The compatibility test, prayers to seek God’s face about the relationship. The weakness revealed and the strengths identified. Above all, making it work with Love.
A Vow shouldn’t be taken lightly. You will wonder at some who after some months of taking the vow want to withdraw it. What were they thinking? To every course you bind yourself to with a vow, there are advantages and disadvantages. You’ll have to embrace the result with gladness and look for a way to make the best of every seemingly bad situation. So, before you make that vow, think?
Ruth damned the consequences, she made a vow when her mother-in-law’s life was in shambles. She eventually got the best with her name written in the hall of fame.
God loves us out of revelation. He knows our frame. He knows everything we can and can’t do. He is the only one who gives hope to the hopeless through Love. Rom. 5:8 KJV But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. This is a perfect Love.
I have sang some songs without understanding them. I never had the revelation about those songs and wonder if they really were that meaningful. When the Spirit opened my eyes to the meaning of these songs, it made sense.
We all sing, “I love You forever.” But don’t understand the powerful meaning it has. It’s a vow to love God and no other God. A vow to love Him through good times and bad. In sickness and in health. He blesses you or choose not to. A vow to love Him with or without the gifts He has given you.
If He takes your job from you, will you still love Him? If He takes your wife or someone dear to you, will you still want to share His love with sinners? Before you sing that song, before taking that oath, think!
It’s better not pledge allegiance to a course you won’t be committed to.
Let us pray: Father, help me to love you truly forever.
