If you are to consider yourself in good standing with the King, you must drop the word divorce from your vocabulary. When the Pharisees tried to trap King Jesus over the issue of divorce, their question reflected a stark reality in their society. "...Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?" Now, since the days of Moses, Jewish husbands had held the legal right to divorce his wife by simply stating his intention to do so, giving her a certificate of divorce, and sending her on her way. There isn't much difference in today's society. We call it irreconcilable differences. But keep in mind, the King's Word has not changed. Once again, I remind you: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will by no means pass away." Remember, God's Words stand forever.
Over the centuries, the practice grew to such proportions that by the time of Malachi, the last of the Old Testament prophets, it was quite out of control. Husbands were divorcing their wives for the smallest of provocations. A wife could be sent away for sneezing while her husband was eating or for cooking a poor meal, or for walking into a room where he was sitting with other men, or for simply glancing at another man. Think about it: are you thinking of an excuse to divorce your wife--or your husband. Think about this as well, God knows your thoughts and heart. When it came to divorce, a wife was at the mercy of her husband, who could send her away at his slightest whim.
Remember what the King stated while He was here on earth concerning the good Samaritan, to the lawyer: "...What is written in the law? What is your reading of it? So he answered and said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind and your neighbor as yourself." And He said to him, "You have answered rightly, do this and you will live".
In essence, live what you know in God's Word. Make the Word of God your life; for in essence, it is your life. Your body will go back to the dust, but your spirit will live forever.
Matthew 19:3 Mark 13:31 Luke 10:26-28
