Some people think that if marriage is hard, they must have picked the wrong person. But author Gary Thomas challenges that thinking in the second half of this “Focus on the Family” program, reminding us that God uses our marriages to purify our lives. Our spouse might simply be the tool God is using to hold a mirror up to our own lives as we begin to see areas we need to address. Gary describes what a covenant marriage looks like, as opposed to a contract and how a committed marriage relationship will grow if both the husband and wife seek to become more like Jesus. Married couples can experience ever-increasing joy when they’re able to look at their marriage as an act of worship to the Lord.
