1 Corinthians 7:12-14 (NET)
To the rest I say – I, not the Lord – if a brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is happy to live with him, he should not divorce her.
And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is happy to live with her, she should not divorce him.
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified because of the wife, and the unbelieving wife because of her husband. Otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy.


After Lamide accepted the Lord Jesus, she was deeply troubled because her husband refused to accept the Lord Jesus. But he still loved her and did not want to leave her. She realized that even though her husband remained an unbeliever, her faith was not affected by his unbelief. This was a mystery to her because she observed that her faith was affected by the unbelief of other people she acquainted herself with.

Marriage is the first human institution ordained by God and it is very powerful. Marriage is so powerful that it defies many natural laws. For example, one plus one equals two, but in marriage, one plus one equals one because’ the two shall become one flesh’(Mark 10:8, Eph 5:31). Normally speaking, clean things do not sanctify dirty things, but dirty things pollute clean things. If you mingle clean clothes and dirty clothes, the dirty clothes will pollute the clean ones and not the clean clothes purifying the dirty clothes. Normally speaking, having fellowship with unbelievers defiles believers(see 2 Cor 6:14-16), but in the case of marriage, we see from today’s verses that when a person married to an unbeliever becomes a believer, the unbelieving spouse will be sanctified because of him. This does not mean the unbelieving spouse is saved by the salvation of the believing spouse, but it means the unbelief of the unbelieving spouse would not be able to defile the believing spouse as it normally would if it were not a marriage relationship. Such immunity from defilement in the midst of fellowship with an unbeliever is only found in marriage.

Go into today remembering that marriage is a very powerful institution created by God. Because marriage is God’s idea, it can only help you fulfill divine destiny if it is run according to God’s manual (Word).
