Marriage is a beautiful and sacred institution that has been around for centuries. However, it’s not always a bed of roses, and anyone married can attest that it’s not always easy. Sometimes, it can be downright difficult, and tensions can run high. You’re not alone if you’re nodding your head right now. Marriage can be challenging, and it’s natural to feel tension from time to time.
The problem is that many believe the solution to the tension is changing their partner. However, to truly understand marriage, we have to go back to the beginning. God created marriage for a reason, and that reason is good. He created marriage to express His infinite love, justice, self-sustaining character, and timeless existence. He created mankind to express His glory and His majesty.
This is the purpose of marriage: to subdue and rule the earth for the glory of God. The first step in revolutionizing our marriage is to recognize that each of us is created in the image of God.
Marriage is a combination of two who become one and represent God to the world in completely different ways. Both were brought together for this complete image, this picture, this beauty.
Marriage requires effort and understanding from both partners. When tensions arise, it’s essential to focus on solutions rather than trying to change your partner. By recognizing that we are all created in the image of God, we can work together to create a marriage that reflects his glory and majesty.
