Summary: A biblical exploration of God's plan for marriage
The city slicker cheerfully pitches a tent. The diehard rock and roll fan stands in line for opera tickets. The night owl gets up with the early bird. The old song says it best – the things we do for love. The switch from high heels to hiking boots or fish sticks to sushi isn’t a change of mind; it’s a change of heart. Simply stated, what matters to your beloved now matters to you.
Regardless of the current state of your union, it’s a safe bet that Someone else cares more about it than you do. Your marriage matters to God! Can you think of a better reason to guard that sacred relationship? In this video, Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg open the scriptures to reveal God’s passionate perspective on marriage – and share His advice for couples that want to honor Him.
Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg
Gary Rosberg: Remember that your marriage does make a difference to God. It makes a difference to God. In fact, in the last book of the Old Testament - in Malachi 2 – here’s what Scripture says:
So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. “I hate divorce,” says the Lord God of Israel.
Folks, when you read that, it may sound harsh. He doesn’t hate the people who go through divorce; he hates divorce. Why? Because he wants you to get to the other side, regardless of your differences. Remember, the differences allow you to complement one another in marriage, to cover one another’s backs. And a lifelong marriage will give you the opportunity to take those differences and kind of rub off a little bit on each other so that you become one – bringing glory and honor to Jesus Christ.
