When the rough spots come, and they will, how do married couples make it? In marriage, we might try to avoid dealing with conflict or taking responsibility for our sin. But without true communication or humility, our marriage bond is ruined, and we miss out on God’s blessing. As Ephesians 5 describes, God designed marriages more to develop character than to ensure a lifetime of happiness.
Many couples have prenuptial agreements to divvy up their possessions should the marriage fail. What hope is there for a lasting marriage? With a vision of purity and honor, God’s Word counters the lies we want to believe about marriage. Pastor Lutzer debunks five prevalent myths promoted in today’s culture which lead to broken marriages. The Bible tells us how marriages can last, come what may.
While the world continues to undermine marriage, Pastor Lutzer asks us, "How can we build an enduring marriage?" What keeps a couple together for decades, surviving war, immigration, deprivation, and material want? Let’s hear about the parents of Pastor Lutzer, as he tells their story of 76 years of marriage in Canada. He lists five biblical principles that kept his parents together through thick and thin.
The breakdown in society correlates with the breakdown of the family as well as the increase in sexual and other forms of abuse we see. Our enemy Satan seeks to attack the family and our souls in any way he can. Demonic lies and influences leave behind a trail of destructive choices and actions. Families and victims are then left broken in sin and dysfunction. But God can turn victims into victors.
When your family is destructive or abusive, it’s easy to feel completely alone. Look no further than the pages of Scripture to see families scandalized by abuse and its dysfunction. This leads to a crushing shame, not from a good conscience embarrassed by sin but from a broken spirit weighed down by patterns of sin. In this message, we’ll see how Jesus can make the soul whole and minister to the brokenhearted.
