We are still looking at principles that will ensure that we experience a garden of Eden marriage and family life. Today I want to focus Christ centeredness in marriage.

Marriage is supposed to be a union of three persons; Husband, wife and Christ. You cannot really enjoy peace and love without the presence of the Prince of peace in your marriage. If you want a beautiful home you must make Christ the centre of your marriage.

By that I mean each of you should have a growing relationship with Christ. The more each grows closer to the Lord, the more you get closer to each other. The reason is that you can never become the husband or wife God created you to be outside of a relationship with Christ. That is the bedrock of a thriving marriage and family life.

Many a time we want the fruits of Christ(peace, love, joy, self control, kindness etc) in our marriages but we forget that these are fruit not gifts. Fruits can only be born out of relationship. By each of you concentrating on growing your relationship with God, you will find yourselves growing to love each other more and building an ‘Eden’ home.

Marriage is a divine institution. It therefore requires divine enablement and grace to work it. Many people can do great things in business, politics and academia but fail in marriage because it takes Christ centeredness to make a garden of Eden kind of home. Most marriage problems would be solved if both couples were growing Christians. For instance if both parties decide to make the following scripture their lifestyle there would be very few problems in our marriages and family life. That will ensure that our houses become homes. Eden like homes. This is the scripture;

Phillipians 2:4
Let each of you look out not only for his own interests but also for the interests of others.
