It's natural to maintain a comfortable relationship with your spouse by avoiding issues. But to truly experience a marriage based on the relationship between Christ and his church, we have to go beyond comfort and avoidance.
Stow, OH (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
A new Christian marriage book called Married to Jesus, by Matthew White, encourages husbands and wives to live a life like Jesus in their marriage.
"I hope the book will encourage people to take a real close look at their marriage," White said. "It's natural to maintain a comfortable relationship with your spouse by avoiding issues. But to truly experience a marriage based on the relationship between Christ and his church, we have to go beyond comfort and avoidance."
Married to Jesus encourages a close examination of our souls. It forces the reader to identify and confront deep issues that are like hidden viruses to our relationships. Dealing with the tough, sometimes hidden issues can free you to experience the joy God intended for us in marriage.
Following the instructions set forth in Ephesians 5, White walks the reader through some of the most important aspects of a marriage relationship and how "being Jesus" to your spouse is sure to improve your relationship not only with your spouse, but also with your children, neighbors, coworkers and friends.
The perfect marriage book for both newlyweds and marriage veterans alike, Married to Jesus offers a sound biblical foundation to the marriage relationship. The book touches on such areas as praying together, humbling yourself, and becoming a servant in your marriage, but most important, it encourages marriages to take a team approach in dealing with tough, real-life issues.
White addresses some potential traps in a marriage, especially when it comes to avoidance and being completely honest with your spouse. A lifelong Christian, he shares his own experience and the results of hiding an addiction for years from his wife. Opening up to his wife, asking for and receiving forgiveness from her, and offering forgiveness to those who hurt him in the past, were all part of his becoming more like Jesus in his own marriage.
A must-have book for married couples, Married to Jesus is an easy read and includes some interesting examples and real-life testimonies from the author.
