Divine Marriage Counseling

 

          Boil down everything the Bible teaches about marriage and its essential ingredients for success. Compress them into one sentence. Reduce it down into one word, and what do you have?

          R-E-S-P-E-C-T. “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord…let every wife see that she respects her husband (Ephesians 5:22, 33).

          A-F-F-E-C-T-I-O-N. “Husbands, love your wives just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her…let each of you in particular so love his own wife as himself” (Ephesians 5:25, 33).

          Divine marriage counseling uses the greatest possible measuring stick: “as to the Lord”; “just as Christ also.”

          Divine marriage counseling uses the simplest and most actionable of commands: submit to your own husband; love your own wife.

          Divine marriage counsel is timeless. Just as Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), His love for and relationship with His bride remains as untouched by the passage of decades, centuries, and millennia of time as the Scriptures’ inspired counsel on marriage.

          Simple. Elite. Actionable. Timeless.

          No marriage counseling rivals that given by God in His word.
