Hello, students! I welcome you to my school of marital union. This is not like any other institution you’ve attended, and what I’m going to teach you here, you cannot get from anyone else. You might have heard from people who have gone ahead of you how difficult this course is to pass, but I’ll want you to put your mind at rest and discard whatever you might have heard. if you follow the course outline given to you and you constantly seek my face, you’ll experience help on this journey.
So many people have also dropped out from this school, but in the beginning, it was not so. My intention is that everyone who gains admission into this school will finish their course with joy. The only thing permitted to terminate your studentship with your co-student is death, or when I come for you. In this school, you’re paired in twos (male and female), but you have one score sheet because I consider the two of you as one. The two of you are not allowed to leave each other and you cannot go after another student or even non-student.
Before I delve into the main course, let me give you a run down of things.
Course Title: The Marital Journey
Course Code: Marriage 101
Instructor: The Holy Trinity
Role of Instructor: The Father brings the students who are compatible for each other together. He knows who is suitable for who and what time they are to commence their journey. The Holy Spirit helps them do what the Father has in mind. He helps the husband love his wife like the Son loves the church, and He also helps the wife submit to her husband like the church should submit to the Son. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit work together to ensure the success of the union.
Students: Husband and Wife
Role of Husband: To love his wife like Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it. To cherish her. To give honour to her as unto the weaker vessel. To lead the wife and children in the way of the Lord, amongst other roles that will be listed in the course outline.
Role of Wife: To submit to her husband as the church submits to Christ amongst other roles to be mentioned in the course outline.
Instructor’s Manual: The Holy Bible
Ephesians 5: 22-33
1 Corinthians 7:1-16
Proverbs 31: 10-31
Certificate of studentship is given at the commencement of the union and as earlier stated, only death or my coming terminates studentship.
With this little intro, you are ready to journey with me. I’m your able Captain. At no time should you attempt a control tussle with me. I don’t wrestle with my students and I’ll leave them to drive themselves which will in the end be to their detriment. However, I’ll advice that you give me full control of your ship.
I love you, and I’m rooting for you.
