by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men – Double Our Efforts
Editor’s note: Interesting in light of the fact that Evangelical Christians and Christians in general have higher divorce rates than just about any other people group. So dear readers, what do you think causes marriages to work and not fail? Is it adding Jesus
Men, I mentioned in my last post that whatever it takes for a man to woo a woman and bring her to the altar to say, “I do,” is what it takes to hold the marriage together. Because of the storms that currently attack the very existence and idea of marriage, we need to MORE THAN DOUBLE OUR EFFORTS to maintain and grow our marriages.
In today’s world of divorce, and even multiple divorces, plus the homosexual agenda that degrades holy wedlock, it makes it harder for marriages that are going through struggles, small or great, to survive. All of this means that we Christians have to work harder than ever to keep our marriages strong and meaningful. We Christians have Christ on our side and we can do all things through Him (Philippians 4:13).
If married couples could demonstrate to the world the love, unity, and care that God intends us to express in our marriages, why, the world would knock down our doors to find out what we have that they do not have.
The question is: How is this possible if we, God’s people, do not allow Christ into our marriages? He must be in control of our individual lives as well as our joined-together lives.
