If so, carefully consider the important marks of a God-glorifying marriage found in this booklet. Strive to put these things into practice, and your marriage will be better for it! Table of Contents: 1. Building on the Word of God 2. Cultivating Spiritual Fellowship 3. Praying Together 4. Practicing Family Worship 5. Loving Your Spouse 6. Developing Good Communication Skills 7. Complimenting Your Spouse 8. Cultivating Physical Intimacy 9. Developing Friendship and Common Interests 10. Developing Togetherness in Parenting Series Description D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that what the church needs to do most all is “to begin herself to live the Christian life. If she did that, men and women would be crowding into our buildings. They would say, ‘What is the secret of this?’” As Christians, one of our greatest needs is for the Spirit of God to cultivate biblical godliness in us in order to put the beauty of Christ on display through us, all to the glory of the triune God. With this goal in mind, this series of booklets treats matters vital to Christian experience at a basic level. Each booklet addresses a specific question in order to inform the mind, warm the affections, and transform the whole person by the Spirit’s grace, so that the church may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.

Building a Marriage That Really Works Book Excerpt:

A Blueprint for Building a Love that Lasts Marriage begins with visions of eternal love, hope, and happiness. Yet, even among Christians, hope too quickly fades. The happiness dims. And love seems too hard to sustain. It doesn’t have to be that way. God designed marriage to be a satisfying, fulfilling relationship, and He created men and women so that they–together, and as one flesh–could reflect His love for the world. Marriage, when lived out as God intended, makes us complete, it brings us joy, and gives our lives fresh meaning. In this study, you’ll examine God’s design for marriage, and you’ll learn, from the Designer’s perspective, what it means to be a godly husband or wife. You’ll discover biblical wisdom for pursuing harmony in difficult areas such as finances, communication, and respect for each other’s roles. Most important, you’ll learn the principles you need to build a love that lasts.

How's your marriage?Often, once the honeymoon is over, a marriage slowly becomes lukewarm. Each spouse gradually begins to take the other for granted. Days turn into months, and months turn into years. What began as a close and intimate relationship disintegrates.

If your marriage is "great," then this study is also for you. We all need encouragement. Our world needs Godly marriages, so join seasoned marriage educators Byron and Carla Weathersbee along with Amy Castellow in a 9-session Bible study designed for small groups to create conversations centered around God's call to selflessness, acceptance, perseverance, and intimacy.This study will help you love like never before as you establish healthy rhythms in your marriage.

Living in a Godly Marriage Book Excerpt:

The Puritans believed that godly marriages were foundational for the future life of families, churches, and nations. Therefore, they wrote prolifically on the subject of marriage, seeking to bring biblical reformation to this subject in a comprehensive way. Martin Luther, John Calvin, and other previous Reformers had begun this task, but the Puritans took it much further, writing a number of detailed treatises on how to live as godly spouses. Out of the wealth of material available to us from the seventeenth century, Joel R. Beeke and James A. La Belle have gathered together insights from the past and summarized them in a contemporary form in order to encourage modern day coupled to glorify God in marriage. Table of Contents: 1.The Institution and Honor of Marriage 2. The Purposes and Benefits of Marriage 3. Securing a Good Entrance into Marriage 4. Preserving the Honor of Marriage 5.

Marriage Can Survive Infidelity Book Excerpt:

The news of his wife's affair had crushed him. He slumped in his chair and sobbed bitterly. The thought of losing the woman he loved was unbearable. Her admission shook him deeply, and he wondered if he would ever recover or experience happiness again. In Your Marriage Can Survive Infidelity, Dr. Cody J. Perry, Ph.D., shares the story of betrayal, anguish, and uncertainty after his wife's affair. For many couples, adultery is an automatic death sentence. However, for Cody and his wife, it meant the beginning of a stronger, more fulfilling marriage. An Old Testament story and Paul's description of love in 1 Corinthians 13 allowed Dr. Perry to escape from the precipice of divorce and rebuild a wonderful marriage. Dr. Perry shares his experiences and steps for building a stronger marriage, including:* His personal story of betrayal, depression, and redemption* The reasons he chose to reconcile with his wife* Myths about marriage and divorce* What the Bible says about marriage, love, forgiveness, and grace* How to forgive your spouse* What to expect as you rebuild your marriage* How to protect your relationship from infidelity* How reconciliation reveals God's glory * How to heal from infidelity and/or a divorce Dr. Perry's candid account of infidelity, forgiveness, and Christian marriage brings hope and optimism to those struggling through a difficult marriage. His story illustrates how God works miracles when couples commit to loving one another in a Biblical, Christ-centered relationship.

Marriage is the most intimate of all human relationships, where two separate, unique and whole persons (one male, one female) make a covenant and exchange vows, committing their lives to remain together until death. Marriage is a covenant, a fusion, a legal union and a blending of a man and a woman (not a man and man or woman and woman) in a life-long relationship.

Spiritual Blindness Book Excerpt:

The New Testament teaches three specific things how individual Christians in the church are to conduct themselves; o Love one another as Christ loved us o How men and women treat each other outside of marriage o How husbands and wives treat each other inside of marriage. These three basic human relationships serve as a witness to those outside the church as an evangelistic tool. How we deal with each other has ramifications for how we conduct ourselves spiritually before a lost world. We have failed in these three basic relationships. We need someone to step unafraid from the background and face down criticism and perhaps ridicule, even persecution from the self-righteous who continue to lead the church away and resist the necessary course corrections in these final days. Who will be willing to confront the issues head-on in order for the world to know Christ? Are you, as part of His church, ready for the second coming of our Lord? Would you be willing to face discomfort and ridicule if you knew that God had called you to such a fate? What discomfort are you willing to endure for the cause of Christ?

Building a Godly Home Book Excerpt:

"For years, William Gouge's Domestical Duties has stood as the foremost Puritan treatment of Christian family life. ... To help revive the usefulness of this classic book, Scott Brown and Joel R. Beeke divided Gouge's work into three manageable volumes, updated the language to modern standards, and have given it the title Building a Godly Home. In the first volume, A Holy Vision for Family Life, we hear the voice of a wise and loving mentor, calling us to the old paths laid out for the family in the Bible. Here is Gouge's helpful exposition of Ephesians 5:21-6:4, where he lays out the wife's voluntary submission to her husband, the husband's sacrificial love for his wife, the child's obedient honoring of parents, and the parents' nurturing leadership of their children."--p. [4] of v.1 cover.
