With praises and thanks to the Lord God, married members of the Church Of Christ from the Ecclesiastical District of Davao West celebrated the 58th anniversary of their organization, Buklod, through a special gathering on December 11, 2020.
Brother Bedanio Ubaldo, district supervising minister, officiated at the holy service at the main venue of which was the Local Congregation of Davao City’s house of worship. It was livestreamed to other local congregations.
Brother Ubaldo highlighted from the Bible the importance of harmonious relationship between husband and wife as taught in the Bible.
“As we are well aware, nowadays there are families that are ruined, as family members are not at peace with each other, especially the husband and wife, so they tend to separate or divorce. But that is not the case for us, Church members,” Brother Ubaldo explained regarding the significance of the event. “In the special gathering, we once again strengthened the marital bond between couples through the words of God so that His will be fulfilled, that those whom He joined together, man should not separate.”
Reflecting on the Bible-based lesson, Anthony Igaña, deacon from the Local Congregation of Ma-a, said, “Times do come when we have misunderstandings, but our love for each other prevails. We firmly hold on to the promise of God that whenever we approach Him in prayer, especially in times of trials, He will listen and help us.”
For this, his wife, Clariz, said, “I promise to be a good wife to him, while both of us are exemplary parents to our children.”
“We firmly believe that with God in the center of our marriage, we will carry on despite whatever trials we may face,” Anthony added. — With reports from INC News Section
