SIX REASONS WHY COUPLES SHOULD HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD.

God is the author of marriage, every couple need to put Him at the centre of their marriage

even as they labour daily to make wealth and have comfort.. Psalm 49:1-end show us reasons

why we should fellowship with God.

I will share six reasons why you should be closer to God either as individual or together as a

couple.

(1). WHAT YOU ARE STRUGGLING TO GET CANNOT DEFEND YOUR LIFE.

You need to understand that your money or wealth can never safe your life nor that of your

family members. If wealth could safe life, you can be rest assured that no rich man will die.

Read what David said in psalm 49:1-8

Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:

 

2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

 

3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

 

4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.

 

5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

 

6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

 

7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

 

8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

 

(2). MAN HAVE LIMITED TIME HERE ON EARTH.

This is another reason you should dedicate your family to God. We are given limited time

to prove our loyalty to God and after give account of our life.. Regardless of your wealth you

must leave it one day.Psalm 49:8-10, and 16-19 has this to say:

 

8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

 

9 That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

 

10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

VS 16-19.

16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

 

17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

 

18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

 

19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

 

(3). MAN’S  MEMORY /  LABOUR WILL ONE DAY BE FORGOTTEN.

What are you labouring for in this world that will make you forget your maker?  One day all the

labour will be forgotten. This is why your family should draw closer to God.  Psalm 49:10-13

10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

 

11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.

 

12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

 

13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

 

(4). LIFE WITHOUT GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS RESERVED FOR HELL.

It is foolish to labour here on earth and end up in hell fire, that is the portion of those who

failed to honour their maker while on earth. You will not be happy seeing your family languishing

in hell. Therefore, dedicate your marriage to God. Read psalm 49:13-14

 

13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

 

14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

 

(5). THE RIGHTEOUS SOUL IS PRESERVED AND RECEIVED BY GOD.

This should be your target as a family. That after your labour on earth, your soul is preserved

in God and received by Him with that of your family members. There is joy in fellowship with

God as a family. Psalm 49:15

 

15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

 

(6). NO MATTER WHAT YOU ACQUIRED HERE ON EARTH YOU SHALL LEAVE IT BEHIND

What is man’s life after all without God. Your portion of labour is that which you eat while alive.

Remember, non of your wealth will travel with you on this journey of eternity, all you labour for in

your life will be left behind, so it is wise to serve the Lord while you are living. Psalm 49:16-20:

 

16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

 

17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

 

18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

 

19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

 

20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
