Disclaimer: Christie and I just celebrated 20 years of marriage. It has been good and sweet and difficult and humbling. Please don’t despair from the happy picture, there are many times it has been ugly. The statement below is what I have been convinced of from Scripture. I truly believe that God is able to keep you in your marriage even through extreme difficulty.
Marriage is a picture of Jesus’ covenant-keeping love for His bride. The radicalness of the love of Christ is pictured many ways – Jesus’ death on the cross for hell-bent sinners being number one.
