We know that God raised Jesus from the dead, but is He able to resurrect a marriage that was assassinated after the betrayal of one spouse against the other? Is it possible to bring a marriage back from the dead after adultery?
There is hardly anything that has the potential to rip apart a marriage any deeper and surer than infidelity. It does grievous damage to the sanctity of a marital partnership and to the heart of the spouse who is betrayed.
But the question is:
Can God bring back from the dead a marriage that has been ripped apart by unfaithfulness? The answer is yes. But will your spouse participate with God in this process? We, of course, don’t know, it’s difficult to tell sometimes.
But think of it this way:
“Who better to resurrect an ash heap of a marriage than the creator of marriage Himself?” (Marla Kloenckner)
And who better to resurrect a marriage, than a God who knows can identify with the heartache of betrayal? And yet God made reconciliation possible, through Jesus Christ, to His unfaithful bride —the church.
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
