THE MARRIAGE SERVICE OF JASON & ALEXIS
When the Bride starts down asile motion w/ hands to stand up PLEASE REMIND STANDING FOR THE READING OF GOD’S HOLY WORD. Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Genesis 2:21-23 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
You may be seated. Thank You! At this time who gives the Bride? (They (who) place the right hand of the Bride into my hand.) (I in return will place the right hand into the Grooms right hand)
WELCOME TO THE MARRIAGE OF JASON RAYAN MARCELO & ALEXIS NICHOLE WORK. As you can see God ordained the Home before the church or even the government.
Just as God made & brought Eve unto Adam.
On January 3, 2003 God brought Alexis to Jason.
It was love at 1st sight for both Jason & Alexis. I mean their hearts were pounding with excitement. Jason was thinking this is going to be my wife & the mother of my children.
Alexis at the same time was thinking this is going to be my husband & the father of my children.
They both thought at 1st let’s be friends & take this slow. Let’s see where it goes. But at the same time they both knew they wanted each other forever. Here we are 6 years later January 3, 2009. They have one child already & another on the way.
They took it slow & now today they want to make it right before God & you. Their family & friends. To Jason read Ephesians 5:25-28 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. Jason my challenge to you is found in Joshua 24:15b “but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
My prayer is that you will lead your family in all Spiritual matters by following the Lord
To Alexis read Ephesians 5:22-24 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Alexis my challenge to you is found in Ruth 1:16 for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
My prayer is that you will follow Jason as he follows the Lord.
Jason & Alexis my challenge to you is found in Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
That you together as one will serve the Lord Ephesians 5:31
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Jason & Alexis marriage was instituted by God Himself.
He even preformed the 1st marriage.
When a man & a woman have chosen each other. When they have come to that moment of joining in this convent for life.
They lay down on the altar a Holy Sacrifice to God.
Marriage is God’s institution, intended for the happiness & welfare of all mankind.
This is a union in the Lord & is not to be taken lightly. Marriage is to be built upon the foundation of the Lord & in Love per 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. We find this in 1 Corinthians 13:13 about Love And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
