How does God use our marriages to change us? To grow us in holiness? To reveal our sins and shortcomings and encourage us to look only to Christ for satisfaction? How can we gain clearer vision, that we might see God at work in our marriages and come to embrace the everyday grace of the gospel? How can my marriage be rescued from its primary nemesis – my own selfishness?
Marriage Matters – A 12-week study using Winston Smith’s book by the same title aims to answer these very questions, and more! Join us each Sunday at 9:30 am (June 7 – Aug 23) as we seek to build our marriages on the sure foundation of God’s saving love and glory in the gospel of Jesus Christ. For more information, contact Pastor Keith.
Marriage Matters by Winston Smith is about the Extraordinary Change that can come through Ordinary Moments. The Kindle ebook edition is just $2.50. Drawing on his extensive experience as a marriage counselor Winston Smith, offers a simple yet powerful prescription for changing your marriage. He shows how examining the everyday disappointments and irritations in your marriage will help you understand yourself, your spouse, and your need for God’s love. Change begins with seeing day-to-day interactions from a different perspective, taking simple steps to love one another more effectively, and then learning how to take those steps over and over again. Interactions that used to devolve into pointless annoyances and fights can become an opportunity for God’s activity and love to become increasingly evident and powerful.
