Healing My Marriage
The Power of Marriage
The power of Christianity is the fresh start. What Jesus has done is the Good News! So, this good news has ramifications for our marriages! Something new has come and old has passed away. When we follow Jesus, we yield to his supreme direction in our lives. This goes for our marriages, too. Jesus asks for what your spouse asks for: put me first. Marriage won't work unless you put your marriage in the highest priority over your parents, kids, career, and hobbies.
Ephesians says take care of your body. Take care of your marriage. Care for it. Feed it. Exercise it. Challenge it. There is a connection between the physical and the spiritual. Take care.
C.S. Lewis writes:
'He gives the happiness that there is, not the happiness that is not. To be GOD-to be like GOD and to share his goodness in creaturely response--to be miserable--these are the only alternatives. If we will not learn to eat the only food that the universe grows--the only food that any possible universe can ever grow--then we must starve eternally.
Jesus is the Bread of Life. He feeds and provides. He is the one that makes things new. Do you need a fresh start? Have you heard the Good News?
