A couple caught in the euphoric state of engagement has not yet come to the reality of what it is to live with another sinner. They live in the romanticism of their idealistic hopes. The realities of married life quickly settle in once the wedding is over. A few disagreements quickly subdue the glories of their special love. The disagreements don’t mean that the couple has ‘fallen out of love’ as some might assume. Instead it calls them to focus on learning how to genuinely love each other.
Each spouse must learn to live by the rules for a good marriage. There are not very many, but they are important. The Lord even gave us special instructions on how to gain a great marriage. But the unseen foundation of a happy marriage is one basic truth. Marriage is based on an unconditional commitment. God declared “the two shall become one.” They don’t come apart.
Commitment is the willingness to stay faithful and be kind no matter what happens. Marriage is a ‘for as long as you both shall live’ commitment. That is the reason our Lord uses the marriage relationship to further our understanding of the intimacy He desires to have with His own people.
A strategic basic discipleship series designed to help Christians grow not only in their relationship with God but also with other people. Each section uses a familiar relationship to bring out basic but very practical Biblical teaching.
We highly recommend getting the BFF Discipleship #1 Digital Library which not only includes the Relationship Discipleship book, but slides, summaries, user guide, teacher's reference, etc. This D#1 Library also contains all our other Christian training resources for new believers.
