“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:2
There is a lot of bad information out there when it comes to marriage. Many people are going into marriage with a tainted view and unrealistic expectations. Also, we’ve seen a lot of unhealthy marriages modeled to us. We need to spend hours in books and on the road when it comes to getting a driver’s license, but nothing is required to obtain a marriage license. We need to come back to a basic understanding of what marriage is and isn’t, and daily choose to keep pursuing God’s standards of the marriage relationship.
Here’s the bottom-line — marriage is a COVENANT! It’s a covenant made between a man, a woman and God for a lifetime. You have been called to defend your covenant partner and you have been called to defend your covenant marriage.
