Before you jump to conclusions about the title I want you to think about something. What do you expect from the person you’re involved with? Are your expectations realistic? Is God at the center or is He just a means to your happiness? I ask these questions because it’s important to know these things before and while in marriage.
Marriage is sacred, it’s God’s idea and He’s committed to it. The question is are we? For many of us if we’re honest the answer is, NO!
Today I want you to consider three things about marriage and let the convo begin:
1) Marriage is about holiness, not happiness
2) Conflict should strengthen your marriage, not separate you two
3) The beauty and point of marriage is Christian maturity
These three points are important to understand because you can bank on this, you will be sinned against and you will sin against your mate. If you don’t understand this you will place a standard of ’emotional perfection’ that you don’t and can’t live up to. Sin is to be expected and should remind the two of you of God’s grace, love, mercy and patience with you. As the two of you meditate and live in that reality there isn’t room for pointing the finger at each other, because both of you are living in light of God’s grace. The beauty of marriage is realizing how much God love you two and sharing God’s unconditional love and grace with each other.
This particular video will be a series because I obviously can cover everything in one video. As we continue to unpack this together I need your comments, questions and experiences.
