Freedom in Marriage
We’re getting ready to dive in to the Marriage portion of our “Real Freedom” series… June and I have been married 27 1/2 years, and over that time we’ve learned many helpful “best practices.” I will be sharing several of those over the next few weeks. I’ll also be addressing specific questions sent in via email, texting, and handwritten notes.
So what does God say about “falling in love” and “falling out of love?” What do you do when you’re not “feeling the love” anymore?
So many of the principles we’ve been learning so far relate to marriage. Just last week we covered Galatians 5:13 “You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.” Marriage is definitely the testing and proving ground for this verse.
Whether you are looking to strengthen your marriage, apply relational principles as a single person, or rebuild after a broken relationship, there will be something for you. I want to encourage you to come with a prayerful and hope-filled attitude…
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.
Ephesians 3:20 (Message Version)
