Resurrection marriages (Eph. 5:22-33) are grounded in a Spirit-filled, worshipping community (“speaking,” “singing,” “making melody,” “giving thanks”) that expresses itself in mutual subjection and encouragement under the lordship of Jesus Christ, the Head of the Church (“submitting”). Without the instruction, encouragement, equipping, and accountability found in the fellowship of the Church, your marriage will die a slow and agonizing death.


Resurrecting your marriage is really not so difficult. All that it requires is a growing dependency upon and obedience to God. If you are serious about resurrecting your marriage, prayerfully interact over the following questions:

  • Have you personally come to know and trust in the Triune God of the universe: Creator, Savior, and Sustainer?

  • How has His Holy Word, the Bible, influenced your marriage over the past six months? How can it direct your marriage in the next six months?

  • Are you and your mate committed to a Christ-centered, Bible-believing Church? What is your personal involvement in such a church?
