How to breathe new life into your marriage

August 2, 2013

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Ephesians 4:32

I was talking to a couple in my office one day who were considering marriage. They were explaining to me how much they loved each other in the months they had been together. One of them spoke up and said, “Pastor, when we met it was really love at first sight.”

So I looked at them and told them, “That’s great, and I’m glad you feel like God has already given you that kind of love for one another. But the kind of love that makes a marriage last isn’t love at first sight. It’s love that remains after looking at the same person over a bowl of Shredded Wheat for 40 years! That’s a love that lasts.”

That initial electricity felt between two people, often called infatuation, will always fade. In fact, some people become so enamored with that feeling that it becomes like a drug. So they go from person to person trying to get their next high. Love, on the other hand, lasts long after the feelings of infatuation go away.

You can make the choice to love your spouse. It’s not always easy, but it’s how you’ll breathe life into your marriage. Make that choice today by serving, being patient, and living a life of joy with your spouse. It’s so worth it!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013

Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
