On Sunday, I started a two week series called The Meaning of Marriage. I know that the enemy wants to ruin Christian marriages, but God is calling us to a greater health in our marriages. God is also calling Christian singles to prepare themselves for the covenant that is simultaneously between two spouses, and God Himself.
We spent some time during Sunday messages emphasizing the difference between covenant and contract. In our culture, we incorrectly look at marriage as a contract, in which either party can break if expectations are not being met. God has called our marriages to covenant, which is an agreement that bonds two people together regardless of circumstances. We are people of covenant, not contract.
I’m praying for you existing or future marriage this week. I also look forward to teaching on Sunday, February 23, 2014, a message called “The Case for Traditional Marriage.”
