God’s spirit grieves over divorce. Have you ever seen two best friends or loved up couples together? Did you notice how they talk about each other, finish each others sentences, loves each other deeply, gaze into each others eyes so much that they would want to enter into each others body. Don’t you just love it when they do these things together and with each other? Do you not wish to be a part of that loving relationship? This is exactly what God wants to see when two people come together. When two people come together in true love, they uphold the image of God. For God is love and God created human beings in his image, after his likeness.
Image of God
God hates divorce because of the image of God in human beings. The image of God honors, respects, prefers one another. Not one person is above the image of God. Nobody is too aged, too old, too short or too tall, too dark or too light, too thin or too fat. Everybody is made in this image of God.
The image of God is that of unity, not disunity. The image of God is that of love, not of dislike or hatred. The image of God is that which says I’m all in, not that which says, I am one leg in and one leg out. The image of God is that which is selfless, not selfish. It covers a multitude of sin, it does not recount how many times you have offended me or how many times you keep hurting me. The image of God is not rude nor disrespectful. Far from it.
God is triune in his image. He is God the father, God the son and the Holy Spirit. He is one God yet he is not alone. When he created the heavens and the earth, he did it with his companions. When he created human beings, he consulted with his companions, he said; “Let ‘US’ make man in our own image”(Genesis 1:26).
God and his companions are inseparable. They are one and they do everything together(John 5:20). They are in tune with one another. They are fused together, nothing can separate them. None of them disagrees with one another. Everything they do together is good(Genesis 1:31). The father is in the son and the son is in the father (John 14:10-11, 1 John 2:23) and they have the Holy Spirit with them. They have such a beautiful relationship together and this is exactly what he wants for his created beings. This image of God is perfect and he want his children to embrace his image.

In China, they uphold the tradition to save face. It does not matter who you are and what you do, you must save face. You must respect the other person’s feelings. Children of God must learn to save face as they do in China. To God family is first. No matter who you are or what you do, you carry the image of God on you and you must learn to save face simply for the image you carry.
When two people refuse to uphold the image of God in their relationship, they break God’s heart.
God loves you so much. God is hopeful for you and your spouse. God wants your marriage to succeed. Would you consider his image in your relationship today?
