God Sees One

From Creation, God has seen married couples as one. As stated in Genesis 2: 24, “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh,” (NIV). From the beginning, God had a design and a purpose to see husband and wife as one entity; a unit. Which begs the question of why did God in His design account to see married couples as one? …Read More

For Worse, For Poorer, and in Sickness

For Worse, For Poorer, and in Sickness Everyone has heard the wedding vows with the following words, ” . . . for better or for worse; for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, . . . till death do us part” at some point in their life. These words bring a lifelong commitment to one’s spouse regardless of the circumstances or situations you will face. Most everyone can do “for better, for richer, and in …Read More

United by God

The ultimate goal of surrendering is oneness with God and your spouse,  “for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery–but I am talking about Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:31–32) If the husband is a picture of Christ and the wife is a picture of the church and God …Read More

Communication in Marriage Altered by Sin

Genesis 3: 2 – 3, The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ” (NIV) Given Eve’s response to Satan, we see a breakdown in communication between Adam and Eve in what …Read More

Our Marriage Reflects Our Heart for God

The Heart Where are our hearts in regard to being truly obedient to God? God encourages us to “above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23). The choices we make will bring us life or death. We are to guard our hearts from the things that bring death: “He whose walk is blameless is kept safe, but he whose ways are perverse will …Read More

Marriage Involves Service

God uses marriage to refine us. Marriage is the one relationship where followers of Christ take a vow to intimately serve the other. Jesus demonstrated that service is part of His kingdom work when he washed the feet of the disciples at the Last Supper in John 13: 1 – 20. This principle of service applies to marriages because striving to have a godly marriage is part of His kingdom work. The …Read More

Why does God Hate Divorce?

(NIV) Malachi 2: 15 -16, “Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. ‘I hate divorce,’ says the LORD GOD of Israel . . .” (NIV) Matthew 19: 9, “I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, …Read More

Surrendering to Gods Design

If Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Savior, not your foundation, everything mentioned after this point will be impossible for you to accomplish on your own, in the flesh. You must have the power of the Holy Spirit to discern the things of God. You must seek God and be filled with His Holy Spirit to accomplish things according to His ways.

Why did I write this book?

I sensed that God was calling me to write this book. I went through several trying times with my ex-wife and my commitment to her never wavered. God wanted me to communicate that his children are to remain faithful to the vows taken on their wedding day and not search for ways out of marriage. There are three major strands woven together through this book: From being a sinner to …Read More

Sin Impacts Marriages

Everyone who gets married has the dream of being married until “death do us part”. Where everything is blissful and wonderful with the spouse demonstrating perfect love at all times. In reality, it is the joining of two sinful, imperfect persons expecting the other to be perfect. In truth, at some point during the relationship, sin is going to surface in some form where it effects the spouse and cause a strain …Read More
