Some of you may know that I had the opportunity to present during the International Pastors & Leadership conference, my session was on Marriage & Ministry: Making it all Work! This is such an important topic to me, because marriage is a picture of Christianity, before God made church he made family. He didn’t make Pastor Adam & First Lady Eve, they were just Adam & Eve! It’s like we consistently try to fix marriages once there is a problem, instead we need to give some instruction and information on how to do it right from the beginning! During my session I premiered my new book Handle With Care as a resource to contribute to making marriage last forever! I am tired of the world’s depiction of marriage, you know, the old ball and chain, a death sentence, and life-long sexless relationship…the devil is a liar! God didn’t intend on marriage being that way. A good marriage is like a good body, it takes work to get it and work to maintain it! We’ve got work to do, we can’t continue a life with staggering statistics like 50% of marriages end in divorce or every 13 seconds another marriage ends…that’s the enemy. The enemy wants the world to believe that marriage isn’t a blessing, he wants us to believe that you can’t be happy and have fun in your marriage. It is absolutely possible for you to be in love and in LIKE with your spouse! You just gotta work at it!
I look forward to hearing from you as you read Handle With Care, share your insight, revelations, and even the application into your very own marriage. Join the conversation by tweeting me @PastorAndyWOCC and using the hashtag #SaveMarriage!
We’re gonna make marriage cool again!
