5 Resources for A Christ-like Marriage

Marriage is a holy union of two people who vow to be devoted to each other in every season that life throws their way. It is a commitment made in front of the eyes of God that each spouse should aim to protect and guard. Have you found that your marriage is struggling in this season of your life and that the fire you once had is slowly dwindling?

Whether you have been married for many years or a few months, if you’re not careful, complacency can seep into your marriage. It’s easy to take for granted the true and special gift it is to have a partner in life to spur you on in your relationship with the Lord as you pursue Him together.

Sometimes, life gets the better of people, and they lose sight of their purpose as a married couple. The Bible has a say in how a married couple is supposed to carry themselves as believers and ambassadors for Christ’s Kingdom. Whether married or unmarried, our main purpose in life does not change; we are to always bring glory to God in all that we say and do while maintaining our highest love and devotion to none other than first and foremost our Creator.

As life becomes increasingly busy or monotonous, maybe you have found yourself struggling in your marriage. This year has been especially challenging with navigating a virus that is destructive not only to physical health but also to psychological, emotional, and relational wellbeing. Maybe you have felt a strain in your marriage, and the love and passion you once had has suddenly and subconsciously dwindled. There is hope. There is hope for you and your marriage in reigniting the love you once had for one another. What God has joined together, no man can separate (Matthew 19:6). God is Lord over every situation, and He has the power to transform lives and relationships.

Together, you can embark on a year-long journey of getting to know each other more deeply while connecting through reading marriage books, figuring out how to navigate married life, and refueling the passion for each other that you once had.
