Good thoughts on marriage

May 18th, 2013

I was reading an article from Ed Stetzer just now and found this paragraph really good. I thought I would share it…

Erwin Lutzer correctly stated “in marriage, the goal is holiness, not happiness.” Marriage was intended to be a God-ordained commitment between one husband and one wife for one lifetime as one flesh. Sin has broken that, and we see those effects all around us. However, we have the Power in us to overcome. Christ is faithful to hold marriages together when they are centered on Him and His redemptive work on the cross. If our marriage is focused on holiness, happiness will inevitably follow. I’ve never met a couple who has divorced because they were pursuing God too much.

The rest of the article about marriage and divorce statistics is found here http://www.edstetzer.com/2012/09/pastors-that-divorce-rate-stat.html

God Bless,
Dave
