Goodre. Quotes tagged as "christian-marriage" Showing of The family has here ceased to be for the glory of God; it has ceased to be a sacramental entrance into his presence. It is not the lack of respect for the family, it is the idolization of the family that breaks the modern family so easily, making divorce its almost natural shadow.
It is the identification of marriage with happiness and the refusal to accept the cross in it. In a Christian marriage, in fact, three are married; and the united loyalty of the two toward the third, who is God, keeps the two in an active unity with each other as well as with God. Only leaning on our faithful Father and longing to please Him with everything we do will set the stage for a beautiful romance!

The more comfortable you are with each other outside the bedroom; the easier it is to relax and the sweeter the intimacy! Look ahead, and run after him with all your heart. Then look around. Whoever has kept up with you, marry that person. I'll be asking you for this that and the other thing twenty-four hours a day.
Give your poor wife a rest. She's in heaven, after all. There was, in their anticipation of what was to come, a queer self-satisfaction. It was clear now that they would love each other until the last moment of her life - hadn't that been the goal from the beginning?
They would love each other even beyond the days they had lived together; was there any greater triumph? I wanted liberalized ones, with no outmoded Pauline nonsense exacting from the bride the promise to 'obey' the groom.
Here I put my foot down, rather in the manner of a husband determined to show at the outset who was boss. Marriage is a God instituted covenant between a man and a woman, and it is good. That has never changed.

Couples are simply giving up and walking away, or simply have no idea what they can try next. Things can change. People can change. Marriages can be better than they ever were before.
Until I got a divorce. A divorce from loving myself and seeking my own way. I was reading the book of Galatians one night when I stumbled on the verse, "I no longer live, but Christ lives in me"and the most profound thought hit me: If I am dead, and Christ lives in me, can my wife see Him there? Finding the right person, I have since discovered, is less important than being the right person. The happiest married people I know discovered early on that the "better" comes after the "worse".
Spouses who defile their marriage bed first lost honor for their marriage. Intimacy is safest in the context of marriage and marriage is safest in the context of clarity. The purpose of our dating is to determine whether the two of us should get married, so we should focus our effort there. And if we want to get married, we need to pursue clarity about whom to marry.
The right kind of clarity is a means to the right kind of intimacy, not the other way around. Careful, prayerful, thoughtful clarity will produce healthy, lasting, passionate intimacy.
Any other road to intimacy will sabotage it, leaving it shallow, fragile, and unreliable. We will not know what it means until we allow God to tell us what it means. The tradition has claimed that we do not know who we are and what it means to find ourselves differentiated as men and women until we allow the premises and practices of revelation to unfold.
In the tradition, stretching from Augustine to John Paul II, sexual difference is not mute, inert, nonexistent, or indifferent. In this tradition, God brings man to woman and tells the two sexes something they would not otherwise know: that their creation is good, that their creation as two sexes is for the sake of enabling a church and a covenant, and that, despite their fallenness, their twoness can in itself become a witness to reconciliation and redemption through marriage.
Marriage gives this aspect of our creation the power to testify, and the nonmarried offer supporting testimony through their chastity, which creates the social ecology supporting marriage.

It may well mean more problems. But it does mean a life in which two people are able to accept each other and love each other in the midst of problems and fears. It means a marriage in which selfish people can accept selfish people without constantly trying to change them—and even accept themselves, because they realize personally that they have been accepted by Christ.
Until the church realizes the covenant of spouses is vital for the health of the church, the community, it will continue to decline in relevance. Michael stuffed his hands into the pockets of his jeans, slumping his shoulders in the process as being scolded. He could not look at his father, he knew all too well the disapproving glare that was bound to chastise him. How about ordering us a pizza, while I settle in. Thankfully, my father, your grandfather, sat me down and shared his own marital struggles with me.
Bible verses about marriage
None of us are exempt from them. I know you and Abigail are not talking marriage yet, but I see the way you look at her and I know, that it is just a matter of time. Love is a commitment, Michael, not a contract. That includes forgiving her, not just once, but each time she messes up.
Start with Isaiah 53 and end with 1 Corinthians I think you will find your answers there. Your mom and I are praying for you. God often withholds, or even takes away, something from us in order to give us something far greater. Our Father in heaven knows all our needs, has plans for us we never could have imagined for ourselves, and wields the whole universe for our good. It also saves us all kinds of grief and pain in the future.
If he allows us to walk through something hard or painful, like a breakup, he walks with us every step and waits on the other side to give us a gift that dwarfs all our suffering—like trading an uncool cell phone for a new car.
When we do not push boundaries, we announce the priceless weight of every one of his wounds. When we keep our clothes on and our hands from wandering, we celebrate the immeasurable mercy he carried on a back destroyed with lashes. When we wait in dating, we declare again that he really is risen from the dead and reigning in heaven. With our eyes happily fixed on Jesus, the once-for-all sacrifice for our sins, he will increasingly be honored in our bodies, whether in singleness or marriage.
