KEEPING CHRIST IN OUR MARRIAGE

There is a strong correlation to intimacy in marriage going sour and intimacy with God. They say that loss of spiritual intimacy in marriage doesn't usually explode.. it slowly but surely leaks like the air from a tyre. Suddenly it is very flat.

Interestingly, the same thing can happen with our relationship with God. Lack of desire to spend time with Him, or just lack of planning a time to be close to Him and study the Word can cause a spiritual leak and one day you ask in a panic, "Where is God?" You can't feel His presence and in fact you feel far away.

I believe we have to nurture both relationships- our relationship with Christ and our husbands or wives- or sooner or later we are going to feel estranged and panicky because we do not want to feel far from the ones we love the most: God and our spouse. Let's make it our personal goal to keep the intimacy in our most important relationships alive. We will be eternally glad we did.

  1. Jesus Christ in a marriage does bind together the entire family. Many years ago now, as a wedding gift we received a wall hanging that said, Christ is the unseen guest in this home and the listener to every conversation.

  2. The everyday focus kept on the Lord is the best way we can ever live. I don't succeed... have a constant brain activity keeping me side-tracked ... but I love those moments with Him, His kindness and patience with me. Fills my heart with overwhelming joy.
