Our Problems, God’s Answers….
Every couple eventually has to deal with problems in marriage. Communication problems. Money problems. Difficulties with sexual intimacy. These issues are important to cultivating a strong, loving relationship with your spouse. It is however important to first consider the following:
The Big Problem
One basic problem is at the heart of every other problem in every marriage, and it’s a problem we can’t help you fix. No matter how hard you try, this is one problem that is too big for you to deal with on your own.
The problem is separation from God. If you want to experience marriage the way it was designed to be, you need a vital relationship with the God who created you and offers you the power to live a life of joy and purpose.
And what separates us from God is one more problem—sin. Most of us have assumed throughout our lives that the term “sin” refers to a list of bad habits that everyone agrees are wrong. We try to deal with our sin problem by working hard to become better people. We read books to learn how to control our anger, or we resolve to stop cheating on our taxes.
But in our hearts, we know our sin problem runs much deeper than a list of bad habits. All of us have rebelled against God. We have ignored him and have decided to run our own lives in a way that makes sense to us. The Bible says that the God who created us wants us to follow his plan for our lives.
The solution for our problems lies in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who died on the cross to forgive, and cleanse us from our sin.
