Marriage is a sacred covenant created by God. He created men and women to be committed in their marriage until death do they part. This is not something to be taken lightly. We must be intentional daily to create a thriving marriage that glorifies God.
Being a committed spouse means that we don’t allow our hearts, minds, or bodies to venture outside of the covenant that we have made.
The Bible says in Hebrews 13:4 that marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

He desires for us to have thriving, committed marriages that reflect Him, which means fidelity and solid commitment to each other.
