The best way to stand for the sanctity of marriage

July 17, 2013

He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Matthew 19:4-6

I heard about a lady who had been married four times. The first time, she was married to a banker. Her second marriage was to an entertainer. Then, she married a minister. And fourthly, she married an undertaker.

One day, she was asked by a friend why she married all those men. So she said, “One for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go.” Talk about getting married for the wrong reasons!

It’s amazing to me how many people today marry and divorce for such trivial reasons. You hear all kinds of excuses like, “We’re different people now,” or “We just grew apart.” But the reality is that one or both spouses made the choice to be different or to grow apart. It wasn’t something that just happened.

Marriage is a holy, lifelong covenant between two people. Yet in our culture, it’s been trivialized and treaded upon even by many who call themselves Christians. So stand up for the sanctity of marriage by staying committed to your spouse and being an example of a God-centered union to a watching world!

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!
