The heart & marriage

Research has shown that the heart, the actual organ, is not just a passive pump taking orders from the brain. The heart has its own independent nervous system with 40,000 neurons that give it feeling and thinking capability. That is why the Bible says As a man thinks in his heart. Out of the heart proceed Matthew 15:19 Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks Matt 12:34 As a man thinks in his heart. Proverbs 23:7 Guard your heart with all diligence. Colossians 3:15 The heart is the centre of man not his brain. Marriage Noun The legal, formal union of a man and a woman, typically recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife. The ceremony, civil or religious, by which two people of opposite sex become husband and wife. The Bible definition 1) To lead in marriage, take to wife 1a) To get married, to marry 1b) To give one's self in marriage 2) To give a daughter in marriage. Unless a formal union has taken place a couple cannot say they are married. To be a truly stable as Father God meant marriage to be, there are 3 parts. The heart, a civil ceremony and the physical union. Sad to say many people who have had a civil marriage service have only some of the 3 parts, thus causing conflicts. A mess is created when neither have their heart in it, or only one does. If the heart is not in it, there is no true marriage. It is about the motive of the heart for it to be true marriage. When the heart is not in it, there is no true love. Another reason for conflict, is because of independence on the part of one or both. Anger comes when one independent person does not get what they expect. James 4:1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? you lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. The first Biblical reference is found in Geneses 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Where a couple have come together and had physical union, the Bible says they become one flesh 1 Corinthians 6:16. In the sight of Father God they are in union hence we say married, which according to the word married is not correct, they are joined in a way that they are one.
