Sometimes out of curiosity I look at the statistics page for this blog to see what Google search terms have brought people here. One of the most common ones has been Francis Chan on Marriage. I decided to search the same phrase myself and found quite a few videos by him about marriage. Here’s the one I watched.
One of his points is that if a couple gets involved in ministry for God for a purpose bigger than their marriage they can draw closer to each other. We found that to be true when we reconciled – we became more involved in helping other couples.
We encourage pre-married or struggling couples to start looking for ministry opportunities that they can do that give them a bigger vision in life than just a happy marriage. This is not to say that you should pour all of your energies into ministry and ignore your marriage struggles, but if you truly realize that God is using you as team, it inspires you to find healing for your own marriage.
