Time, effort, and meticulous planning go into the wedding and what about the marriage? Maybe you’re cynical about marriage because of the failed marriages you see around you. Maybe your own marriage has deflated and your hope of ever having a fulfilling marriage relationship has disappeared.
The Keys for Living will help you come to appreciate marriage as the purposeful covenant relationship God intends for it to be. Learn how to find your identity in Christ—not in your mate, discuss tangible ways to improve your marriage, and discover how male and female differences bring balance to the marriage relationship.
“A man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.” Genesis 2:24-25
God has a unique purpose for the marriage covenant. The marital relationship affords you the awesome opportunity to showcase Christ’s relationship to His bride (the church). In the same way that Christ sacrificially gave Himself to the church, you and your mate should be willing to sacrifice your individual desires for the sake of your marriage covenant.
“He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”
