Defending Marriage by Protecting and Strengthening Your Marriage
In this sermon I preached the fourth in the series of six sermons on defending marriage.
While it is important to stand firm in defense of God’s definition of marriage as a lifelong covenant between one man and one woman, it is also important that we defend our own marriages. The rate of divorce, separation, infidelity and mediocrity among professing Christians is alarmingly high. Every marriage starts with high hopes and expectations. Sadly, not all couples live happily ever after.
I draw on over thirty years of marriage counseling experience (and over thirty-five years of marriage) to set forth several keys to preserving and strengthening your marriage. I use many passages from throughout God’s Word. If you are single, don’t skip this sermon! Most of these principles apply in every human relationship.
Before listening to this sermon please read Ephesians 4:25-5:32.
