Putting Jesus first in your marriage

March 9th, 2013

The older I get and the longer I am married to my amazing wife, the more I realise the importance of putting Jesus first in our marriage.

I have found that when I 100% put Jesus first in life and marriage everything else falls into place. I also find that when my amazing wife puts Him first too, I know things will continue to be great.

When Jesus is first I have a more loving and caring attitude, I want to serve my wife more and I see our marriage through the lens of the eternal. Not just the here and now.

All of us get off track in our faith at times. We all start looking around and before you know it Jesus is just a part of your life. Your faith becomes a compartment or section. In reality it needs to be all encompassing. He needs to be your all in all.

If you feel like this is happening, all you need to do is come back to Jesus and start afresh. Ask Him to help you put Him first. Ask Him to help you seek first His Kingdom and receive His promise that all things will be added (Matthew 6:33).

Maybe you like to pray something like this…

Dear Lord Jesus, I have gotten off track with You and I am sorry Lord. I pray and ask today that You will help me to get back on track. Help me to put you first in my life and in my marriage. Help me to see my life and my marriage through Your eternal eyes. Help me not to get caught up in the here and now, but to look to You first in all I do. I pray that as I do this that you will come afresh into our lives. Please take Your rightful place again. Please help me to live each and everyday 100% for You and Your Kingdom. As I do please help me to love and serve my wife/husband and see them through your eternal eyes. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen.

God Bless,
