Randy BectonTil Death Do Us Part, by Randy Becton   Real Audio

    As a minister, it is a privilege to be able to perform marriages. I especially appreciate the line, “...in sickness and in health, till death do us part.”

    Recently I was really impressed with an “altar story” about a couple who married because of the little hope of treatment for the bride. The bridegroom said, “I just wanted her to be my wife, and love her as much as I can.” He could have added, “For as long as I can.”

“...in sickness and in health...”
    When God gives us the privilege of marriage, when he provides for us someone to share our life with, when he tells us that two can become one, and when we are encouraged to stick together through thick and thin regardless of difficulties and regardless of life’s problems—even ill health—it’s encouraging to read about others who do what it takes to make a marriage work well.

    It’s encouraging to read about Kathy and Christian, even though she has serious cancer. She may not live very long, but they’re committed as long as they live to love each other.

    What about you and your mate? Recommit today! God will give you the strength.

    May God’s grace be upon you!

    Randy would love to share with you free resources to help you in your Christian walk.
