Much harm and pain has been caused through “redefining sin”.
We dishonor covenant and instead of submitting to the truth of God’s Word we makes excuses why He can’t heal this marriage.
We have a problem with anger and instead of going to God for His divine, powerful help we say it is our
spouses fault for making us angry, and leave.
We have a problem with adultery and porn and instead of calling it lust and leering and repenting and
seeking God’s purity we call it the “exception clause” and dump our marriage.
We give in to every whim or enticement our flesh is drawn to and instead of choosing to grow in the
fruit of “self control” we say our spouse doesn’t meet our needs any more.
We have a horrible problem with self centeredness and call it “God wants to bless me and I have a right
to be happy” instead of dealing with the sin of “self”.
These lies must end!
Please pray this prayer with us for all married couples hearts.
“My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask Him to strengthen you by His Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite Him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
=== God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Glory to God in the church!
Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus!
Glory down all the generations!
Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!”
