About Couples + Jesus
You may be engaged or you could have just started a new relationship. It can be “lovey-dovey” or you could be in the middle of a disagreement right now. You may even wonder, How can I get a marriage out of this relationship? What is the point of all these arguments? Why do I still care? It’s all love. We love the person we’re with but maybe our communication is off. Maybe the goal is different for the both of you?
I hope if you’re reading this section you have an understanding that being in a relationship with someone without thinking of forever is pretty selfish and pointless to your partner. Being together just to be together gives us no goals or sense of commitment. So where am I going with this?
You can be in a young, old or in a complicated relationship, but eventually we all need God to make a relationship work. Your goal in a relationship is to eventually get married and make a covenant with God. Waiting to bring God into your relationship until marriage can prevent a lot of growth from happening earlier.
We need God to move us to apologize, to forgive or to give ourselves up selflessly. God teaches us that love is an action.
Love in Action
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Men are to treat their wives as they would treat their bodies. Women should honor their husbands and respect them not only with words but with action. Love is not a word, it is an action. In this section we believe that you can start practicing for your future covenant earlier than learn later.
This is where we give wisdom to couples on how to communicate or get past problems that will affect them later. If you find you and your fiancé, fiancee, girlfriend, or boyfriend arguing or misunderstanding each other sometimes, this may be the section for you!
If it weren’t for the people in our lives and God, our marriages could not be where they are right now and we want to share our experiences and wisdom with you.
