Married

You are here

Sex is God’s wedding gift to us, and as with every gift, we need to receive it with gratitude.  God's desire is that sex in marriage is a delightful experience between husband and wife and a means of expressing our love and desire for each other.

Marriage is a 'sacred' covenant between God and husband and wife, and is first a spiritual act that comes with responsibilities and obligations.  It is a beautiful expression of the nature of the relationship between the father, son and the Holy Spirit; one of harmony and love where there is a knitting of hearts, minds and lives into one unique entity. 

Marriage is about teamwork and every marriage is made up of a team.  A team is made up of individuals with different strengths, harnessing the power of their combined strengths to minimise their limitations.

Marriage is about working together as a team and it offers a unique opportunity for couples to give each other help and accept help from each other.  It brings two people with different yet complementary qualities together for their mutual benefit.  Every couple is a team, playing on the same side, completing each other rather than competing against each other. 

Money...It is unique in its ability to meet our needs and drive a wedge between the best of friends. The Bible talks about two becoming one in every aspect of the marriage relationship, including finances.  Having the right attitude and perspective about money is critical to a successful marriage. 

How often do you talk to God? Or listen to Him? Intimacy with God is important and as with all relationships it is important to cultivate the habit of spending time with God, recognising and listening to his voice.

'It's good to talk' is a phrase we often hear.  Talking is important as it gives us a chance to share our thoughts.  It is also good to listen, listening helps us understand each other better.  Communication is crucial in building a strong marriage.  

Life happens, despite our best intentions, things do not always go according to plan.  We lose a loved one, welcome an unplanned addition to the family, suffer a miscarriage, encounter a health challenge. .  When situations like these occur, our response is crucial.  Are we angry and bitter? Do we count our blessings? Do we retreat and isolate ourselves? How do we cope and move forward?
