The Goal Is Holiness, Not Happiness
When the rough spots come, and they will, how do married couples make it? In marriage, we might try to avoid dealing with conflict or taking responsibility for our sin. But without true communication or humility, our marriage bond is ruined, and we miss out on God’s blessing. As Ephesians 5 describes, God designed marriages more to develop character than to ensure a lifetime of happiness.
These messages focus on the topic of commitment in marriage, illustrating what faithfulness and integrity mean in the relationship. Because we are so easily deceived when it comes to matters of romance and marriage, Pastor Lutzer also warns us about the danger of being misled by our emotions rather than maintaining our commitment to our spouses and to God. In a world where divorce is common, these Scriptural truths are intended to bring us back to the reality of what God intended marriage to be.
