Followers of Christ want to know him better. Christian spouses can learn to know each other better, too. Analyze the basis of your relationship with God, discuss questions that will help you better know each other and commit to activities you can do together.
Those who appreciate God’s kindness are always looking for ways to express their appreciation to God for his friendship. One way followers of Christ do that is by building friendship with each other. Witness Jesus overcoming enemies that would have prevented your friendship with God, identify four foes of friendship to your marriage, assess your fondness and admiration for each other and commit to ways you’ll express appreciation for each other.
God has made deposits into your spiritual bank account. Value them and the importance of making deposits into your spouse’s emotional bank account. Review the way God values you and practice and commit to actions that build trust in your marriage.
Everyone knows you cannot not have conflict. But you can manage your conflicts in ways that build intimacy and trust. It starts and ends with the way our Lord has resolved our conflict with him. Learn from him. Identify four foes of your friendship, the antidote to each, understand your spouse’s point of view, learn the difference between solvable and perpetual problems and how to manage each. Because so many couples have found these strategies so helpful, we’ll spend two sessions on it.
Those who don’t follow Christ can have a good marriage; but they can’t glorify God by their marriage. You can. Connect with our Lord and each other through shared faith, build rituals of connection with each other and build a life together.
