If I See My Marriage through God's Eyes
If we were to adopt an eternal perspective, how different would our marriages be like?
If I see marriage with God's eyes, I would see...
... a beautiful union of two children of God that reflects the intimacy among God the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit.
... Christ's faithfulness to the church as I commit to my spouse till death do us part.
... God's forgiveness as I forgive my spouse's sins.
... God's grace as I give and extend grace when we mess up.
... God's redemptive power as He restores the hurs and brokenness in our marriage.
... a lifetime of opportunities to be sanctified in Jesus because we will magnify each other's sins.
... God's sovereignty in orchestrating two people's lives and weaving us together.
... God's goodness for blessing such a wonderful man to me.
... God's unconditional love as my spouse loves me in spite of my imperfections.
... that my joy does not come from how happy my husband makes me but in how I delight in God.
