Becoming a parent adds a new dynamic to a marriage. It adds joys, for sure, but pressures as well. It is one of the toughest jobs on the planet.
Do you want to increase your likelihood of building a lasting marriage? Couples who are intentional about developing intimacy develop strong relationships. An old Calvin and Hobbes cartoon remarked, "It’s funny how day by day, nothing changes. But when you look back, everything is different.” Similarly, marriages can go from arms locked to arms folded.
It's rare that a person wakes up and says, "Hey, I think I'll ruin my life and marriage today!" Yet sin is a slow killer of marriages and relationships.
We continue our series about building marriages and relationships on Biblical principles with this message by Pastor Carlos on holiness and purity. Contrary to what culture may think, holiness and purity bring freedom. Pastor Carlos shares lessons from Galatians 5 to help us see the struggle is real but you can win. There is hope in the God we serve.
We continue our series on relationships with this message about conflict in marriage. All couples fight. Healthy couples fight fair. Healthy couples fight for resolution. Unhealthy couples fight to win. In this message, Pastor Skyler shows how God's design for mutual submission is not weakness (as our culture would suggest). Rather, in God's design for relationships, submission becomes a source of strength.
Watch this replay to be challenged that the message of your marriage should mirror the message of the Bible. We are deeply loved despite being deeply flawed. When we see how much we're forgiven, we more easily forgive those around us. At that point, it's not the absence of conflict that leads to marital success--it's the presence of humility. You'll also get some extremely practical advice based on James chapter 1 to help you better navigate the conflicts that inevitably show up on the journey of any meaningful relationship.
Are great marriages possible? While the answer is certainly "Yes", the odds are stacked against you. But by following the principles laid out in the Bible, you can radically improve the likelihood of a thriving marriage. In this new series, Pastor Skyler challenges us to start with Matthew 6:33. Another person will never complete you. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Join us for all 5 weeks of this series as we learn God's design for healthy marriages and relationships.
