If we were to adopt an eternal perspective, how different would our marriages be like?
If I see marriage with God’s eyes, I would see…
… a beautiful union of two children of God that reflects the intimacy among God the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit.
… Christ’s faithfulness to the church as I commit to my spouse till death do us part.
… God’s forgiveness as I forgive my spouse’s sins.
… God’s grace as I give and extend grace when we mess up.
… God’s redemptive power as He restores the hurs and brokenness in our marriage.
… a lifetime of opportunities to be sanctified in Jesus because we will magnify each other’s sins.
… God’s sovereignty in orchestrating two people’s lives and weaving us together.
… God’s goodness for blessing such a wonderful man to me.
… God’s unconditional love as my spouse loves me in spite of my imperfections.
… that my joy does not come from how happy my husband makes me but in how I delight in God.
