So, is a Christian marriage different than every other marriage?
We’re known for saying, “Don’t get divorced.” But does a a cold commitment to not getting divorced actually make for a better marriage? I think we need a little more drive forward than that. After all, Barna studies show that Christian divorce rates match that of the rest of the population.
I also think it’s got to be bigger than drive, and just working harder than the rest. There’s not much gospel to the message: “take more date nights.” I’m sure that helps, but it’s still on me to make the marriage great… which I can botch at any given time?
What about Jesus, when welcomed into the lives of a committed couple, makes a marriage more secure, more alive, more at peace?
