Delta Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has admonished couples to place God first in their marriages to enable them to succeed.

He gave the advice on Saturday at the wedding of Mr and Mrs Nelson Eta at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Oyede, Isoko North Local Government Area of the state.

Mr Eta is son of business mogul, Chief Enahoro Eta.

The governor said: “Once you hold on to the Lord Jesus, He will bless your marriage; the only master in your home is Jesus, and first, endeavour to build a spiritual mansion.

“As you continue to hold on to the Lord Jesus, you will excel in your marriage and in whatever you do; there will be a positive change in the country and you will be part of making this country a much better place for us to live.

“The Lord is in charge; in every situation, look up to God.”

The governor prayed for the couple, asking God to bless them and make them to know Him more.

Earlier in a sermon, the Bishop of Warri Diocese of the Catholic Church, Most Rev. John Afareha, stated that couples most be guided by the word of God for them to succeed.

He said: “Let the word of God guide you in your union; marriage is a holy institution.

“It is a mystery that is not for little children; it is for adults, men and women; the bond is never to be broken.

“God sees you as one; you are no longer two but one flesh; so, be faithful to your marriage vows. Man and woman are made for each other.

“They are made to complement each other, not to compete with each other. They are to be help mates to each other.

“Remember to invite Jesus into your home. There may be difficulties but, with Jesus in your home, He will bring consolations, your trials will be transformed into blessings.”
