Marriage is tough. Marriage is hard work. Dating reveals the best in you; marriage can reveal the worst of you. But that doesn’t mean marriage isn’t worth pursuing. Marriage was God’s ideal idea. It was His creation, and therefore it is meant for good. Does that mean it doesn’t come with challenges? Absolutely not. But it does mean that marriage can be an incredible tool of sanctification and a beautiful model of God’s relationship with us if we will lean into learning how God intended marriage to be. So with this in mind, let’s take a look at three principles of love and marriage we need to recapture in the present day.
In this series, Dr. James Merritt will explain how he is absolutely convinced not just from a biblical perspective, but from a social and cultural perspective that the family is still a vital institution, and marriage is where the family begins. It is still God’s best plan for the beginning of the family and the continuation of the family. He will dive into the different pieces of a family and what the Bible has to say about each of them. And He will ultimately point us back to Scripture as we learn more about how God intended for the family to look, live, and love.
