Am blessed that I get to serve Christ everyday with my hubby. Am blessed that CHRIST dominates every facet of our lives. Am blessed that my hubby isn’t my first love – CHRIST IS.
That cements everything else. Our marriage and family included.
See, we’re not told to seek first an intimate marriage, a happy life, obedient children, or anything else. Jesus tells us to seek first one thing, and one thing only: His kingdom and His righteousness (the two words define and build on each other, creating one common pursuit).
A successful marriage is not only supported by a kingdom pursuit, but in many ways the pursuit is a prerequisite for post-infatuation intimacy.
Life without this aim, and marriage without this purpose, is going to lose a lot of its luster.
We hunger for this today: cooperating together, meshing, working like a mountain climbing team, ascending the peak of our dream, and then holding each other at the end of the day.
God has planted this hunger deep within every married couple.
It’s more than a hunger for companionship.
It’s more than a hunger to create new life.
It’s a third hunger, a hunger to do something significant together.
According to God’s Word, we were joined to make a difference. We were married for a mission.
Being “married for a mission” can revitalize a lot of marriages in which the partners think they suffer from a lack of compatibility; my suspicion is that many of these couples actually suffer from a lack of purpose.
Jesus’s words given to individuals in Matthew 6:33 are perhaps even truer in marriage. When we give away our life, we find it. When we focus outside our marriage, we end up strengthening our marriage.
So this is our purpose. This is what God called us to do through our blog, ourmarriagechronicles.com.
To spread the Love of Christ and be salt that carries His flavor, and be who He intends us to be.
To say that singles can find purpose in waiting and that marriage is not meant to be an idol.
To preach the KINGDOM TRUTH that marriage works and the world can NEVER grasp such truths without the illuminating power of the Holy spirit.
Its not to say that it will be easy, that there will be no pains, but that Christ, the author, sustainer and finisher of our faith can keep, lift, beautify, restore and glorify a marriage!
