Rev. Funke Felix Adejumo–A Lot Of People Prepare For Wedding, They Don’t Prepare For Marriage Which Is A Life Time Event

Marriage is about destiny. There are five major things that are important in the life of anybody. If you fail in these five things, you are truly a failure. IF YOU succeed in them, you are truly a massive success.

  1. GOD.
    God did not create a world in which He will not be needed. Your relationship with Him must be cultivated.
  2. YOU.
    You are the most important person in your life. Every other RELATIONSHIP is secondary. If you hurt, you will hurt others. If you are an incomplete person, you will not make a complete marriage. If you don’t like yourself and if you do not love yourself, you are going to transfer aggression to whomever make the mistake of marrying you. So you are very important.
    Selfcare is important.
  3. Your family or marriage.
  4. Your Career.
    If you are a designer, be the designer. If you are a lawyer, be the lawyer. Whatever you do, it’s important to be committed.
    Your network is your net-worths. Who you are connected to and with, will determine your net-worth, your weight, your value.

IF you look at how I have arrange those things, the family and marriage is in the middle. Two up and two down. That presupposes that, it is the most important item on that list.
“Genesis 2:18..God said, “it is not good for a man to be alone”. So, God believes that marriage or family life should enhance your destiny. Marriage is many things to many people. To some people, it’s just an organised forum for child bearing and child rearing.
For some people, it is a contract. Some men needs someone that can do house chores, that can keep the house clean and satisfy their sexual desires and then, they pay a stipend to the person

Marriage is more than all that. Marriage is a covenant relationship. One of them must be stronger than the other. Where I’m weak, you are strong. Where I’m strong, you are weak. In those days, when you want to cut a covenant, certain things characterise the covenant.

  1. The two parties.
  2. You chose the date.
  3. You chose a place.
  4. You invite people as witnesses.
  5. You get animals ready.

A lot of people do not take their marriage vow serious, because they don’t understand that marriage is a covenant.
You will noticed that most of the time, when the man of God says, “Who giveth this woman to be married to this man?”, and the bride’s father comes out, takes the bride hand, and hand over the bride to the man of God, not to the groom. It’s prophetic and symbolic(the father is saying, I have taken care of this girl for twenty something years. Now, I give her back to you God, through your servant. Give her to whomsoever you want). It’s a serious thing!

A wedding ceremony, is a one day affair. Marriage is a lifetime event. A lot of people prepare for the one day event, but they don’t prepare for the lifetime event. That’s why it is important for you to prepare!
