my friend Rob takes the advice on how to create a strong marriage thing in a bit of a different direction with this solid advice:
Lock the escape hatch and throw away the key. With no way out we are left to work through our challenges together and become the purposed display or shadow of Christ and his bride to the world.
On a practical level:
– Give yourselves to the process of holiness more than happiness
– Dreams of a happy marriage not followed up by deliberate choices will not come true.
– Passive husbands will still be held responsible (just ask Adam). Lead.
