The Art Of Cleaving: Genesis 2:24

About This Message


1.  REFUSE TO QUIT

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Genesis 2:24 (KJV)

“I hate divorce,” says the God of Israel. God-of-the-Angel-Armies says, “I hate the violent dismembering of the ‘one flesh’ of marriage.” So watch yourselves. Don’t let your guard down. Don’t cheat.
Malachi 2:16 (Message)

Jesus answered them, “Moses allowed you to divorce your wives because you’re heartless. It was never this way in the beginning.
Matthew 19:8 (GW)

Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives…
1 Peter 3:1 (NIV)

2.  REFUSE TO SETTLE

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies…let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
Ephesians 5:25-33 (NIV)

In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Ephesians 5:28 (NIV)
