Excerpt from What God Hath Joined Together Let Not Man Put Asunder: A Collection of Matrimonial Sermons and Addresses; Translated From German
Blessed is the home in which husband and wife are one in faith. If they are not so blessed, worldly affections and interests unite them. But if the holiest affections, the high est interests, join them to one another, namely, Faith in the Triune God, the Father; who has created them, the Son whohas redeemed them, the Holy Ghost, who has called them to holiness and eternal life, then matrimony is a blessed picture of the Paradise which was lost, and also of the eternal and perfect union with God, which Christians are seeking.
If your hearts are one in faith, sorrow will be easier to bear, darkness be turned into light. God has helped you to bear joy and sorrow in the past, therefore continue your journey trusting in His guidance, one in faith by His grace and mercy, and you will always have the antidotes for the poison of sorrow and of death. You will always be able to say with David: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
