1. Walk by the Spirit.

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” (Galatians‬ 5:16‬)

This is what it’s all about! We were created to bring glory to God. We were designed to live in fellowship with Him. When our lives are fully surrendered to God, we allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit. (See Romans 8:14.) There’s a constant battle raging between Spirit and flesh, and we must choose to surrender to the Spirit and allow Him to control our actions.

This isn’t just a marriage conversation, this is a life conversation. We won’t have the marriage God intended unless we are right in our relationship with Him first. You may have heard this said at a wedding ceremony: “It takes three to make a marriage: God, husband, and wife.” Start with your relationship with God, and He’ll help with your relationship with your wife.
