Godly marriages are the best marriages. This is not because of some clever magical maneuvers, but because these couples have been in a greater way influenced by the Creator's pattern and design for them. This is just like our health.

The more we live righteous lives, the stronger, healthier and more joyful lives we will have. It is the same with our marriages! If, however, we ignore His instructions and warnings in His Word, our marital difficulties will increase. These materials focus on strengthening marriages at three different levels by instilling God's life principles found in the Scriptures.

Unless the LORD
builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the LORD guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.
(Psalms 127:1).

A marriage modeled after God's design and empowered by His love is the best marriage!

God's Sexual Design for Our Lives and Marriages

'God's Sexual Design for Our Lives and Marriages' is a special course on instilling in us the right perspective of sexuality and marriage. The only hope we have of gaining a fulfilling and enriching marriage is to understand God's design for marriage. Click on the picture at the right to go to that section.

#1 A Special Design: Sexuality

God designed human beings as sexual beings. He created both male and female as two distinct but complementary sexes. Foundational to a stable life is understanding, accepting and affirming our own gender.

Human Sexuality

#2 A Blended Design: Marriage

God designed us for heterosexual marriage. God has defined marriage as a special covenant relationship between one male and one female. When we try to redefine marriage and its purpose, then our lives along with the whole society are broken down.

Blended Design

#3 An Exclusive Design: Whole-hearted

God has designed marriage for whole-hearted relationships. God has made marriage like ownership. A spouse literally belongs to each other. Straying eyes and hearts strikes right against the foundation of marriage and love.

Whole-hearted devotedness

#4 A Permanent Design: Enduring

Marriage is for life. The marriage vows hold "until death do we part." God has not given us alternative choices for the crises of life. There are no escape hatches because the life-long commitment is the very thing needed to force us to work through our difficulties with each other.
