Keeping Christ at the Center


We believe that strong marriages come down to one thing: Christ. When Christ is at the center of your relationship, all other good things will flow naturally. So today, let’s take a look at how a Christ-centered marriage will bring love, grace, forgiveness, and perseverance to you and your spouse!

Love: When you understand God’s everlasting love for you, you’re better able to love your spouse. You learn to love them for all their wonderful qualities and all their not-so-wonderful qualities. You learn to love them in the good times and in the bad times.

Grace: When you know that God is the only one who can truly fulfill you, you’ll stop expecting perfection from your spouse. This will free you to offer grace to your spouse when they disappoint you or let you down!

Forgiveness: When you experience the forgiveness of Christ for all of your sins, your life will change. With this joy and humility, you become equipped to forgive your spouse no matter what the circumstances. Why? Because Christ always forgives you.

Perseverance: When you keep your eyes focused on Christ, perseverance is inevitable. You have your eyes on the prize: an eternity in Heaven worshipping the one you love! This allows you to persevere with your spouse through whatever trials life may throw at you.
