The Unbroken Vow

June 23rd, 2012

RG AUDIO 062312Hebrews 13:1-8

“Bob, will you have Mary to be your wedded wife . . . and forsaking all others, keep yourself only unto her, so long as you both shall live?” We are familiar with the words of the marriage vows. Both church and society have long recognized the value of a life-long commitment in marriage. Sadly, too many marriages fall short of that goal.

We often talk about the value of a personal commitment to Jesus Christ. Consider, however, God’s commitment to us in Christ. He will never leave us or forsake us. Such a commitment can transform our lives. We can love each other, because God will never leave us. We can be compassionate toward strangers, prisoners, and the oppressed because God is with us and will never forsake us. We can honor our marriages, keep our lives from the love of money, and be content with what we have, because God will never leave us or forsake us.
