A man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.
This is a profound mystery…
Do you have marriage relationship questions that seem to go unanswered?
- “What happened to Mr. Right?”
- “Why doesn’t she respect me?”
- “Why don’t I feel fulfilled in marriage?”
- “Why did we get married in the first place?”
The marriage relationship trumps all other earthly relationships, yet so many fail, or are crumbling in the midst of chaos and confusion.
Timothy Keller, in his book, The Meaning of Marriage, states,
“Marriage is glorious, but hard. It’s a burning joy and strength, and yet it is also blood, sweat, and tears, humbling defeats and exhausting victories. At times, your marriage seems to be an unsolvable puzzle, a maze in which you feel lost.”
This is not exactly a marriage relationship advice book. But you will grow in your understanding of God’s purpose of marriage and use the Bible to guide you on how to have a successful marriage relationship.
This book builds on the premise of the “profound mystery” that the gospel of Jesus and marriage explain one another. That when God invented marriage, he already had the saving work of Jesus in mind.
Your marriage, your most important relationship, is worth investing in. Commit to yourself, your spouse, and your God, to do everything in your power to grow and maintain a godly marriage relationship.
