Our Pastor preached an awesome message on marriage as part of his WE series this past weekend!
WE: What it Takes to Make a Marriage Work
Marriage is a lot of work. But, it’s worth the work when you do it the right way – God will bless it! From the very beginning, God’s plan was for men and women to come together in marriage; to come together as one flesh; to live in loving relationship with one another; and, to model the marriage that we would ultimately have with Him – joining with Him in love for eternity.
But, society has made a mess of this. There’s so much brokenness. We live in a “me” generation and we need to change that. A healthy marriage is simply not possible if we are only focused on ourselves, our wants and our needs. We have to move from “me” to “we” if we want our marriages to work. In fact, that holds true not only for marriage, but for every relationship.
This week, I want to make you aware of some (though not all) of the main qualities of a healthy marriage. If you’re married, these are things to implement. If you’re single, they are some things you should expect.
Marriage is not easy, but it is wonderful…when it’s a healthy, blessed marriage. If you want that, whether you’re currently married or would like to be someday, I encourage you to listen or re-listen to (or watch) this week’s message to find out What it Takes to Make a Marriage Work. By unleashing the power of family in this way, we can begin to reverse the trend toward increasing brokenness in our society and experience a whole new level of blessing in our lives which will carry on for generations to come.
