What happens after the vows are said?
Imagine your self at a wedding. The bride and groom are at the altar,the vows hage been said,and the rings are exchanged. Then as they exit,the bride walks away with a different man.
That would shock anyone.
It is the same with us. We can pray the prayer and say the right words. But, in the end, if our life is no different, it would be like the bride bringing her "ex-boyfriend" along. God wants our entirety. The bible states that God is a jealous God. Like the the groom, his entire being is poured out for his bride. He wants us, woos us,and desires to be with us. We need to leave everything for him. We lose our old name,who we are,and become joined with him when we enter into union with him. What we are given far outweighs our old life.
