Understanding our spouse is the link that provides for the growth of relationship and the oneness. The value and worth of a man or a woman is based on their function and role as God has created them. A great prayer for our marriages is by Francis of Assisi: “Lord make me an instrument of your peace… grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love…”

Understanding (Part 2)

We must understand the uniqueness of our spouse to be able to communicate at a deeper level. There are eight Biblical questions we should ask: “Where are you?”, “Who told you?”, “Have you eaten from the forbidden tree?”, “What have you done?” “Where have you come from?” and “Where are you going?”, “Who are you?” and “What is it you really want?” In other words, Do you want to be who, where and what God planned for you to be?

Understanding (Part 3) and Sex (Part 1)

The Bible provides answers to help us in understanding our God-given role, but the labor of division in a Christian home should be based on our natural gifts, talents, and our spiritual gifts. If our lives and homes are built on Jesus, and we understand our spouses, it will keep crises from destroying our marriage. God created sex for procreation. God also intended for intimacy to be an expression of love and the joyful expression of oneness.

Sex (Part 2)

God intended sex for many purposes. One of the first purposes is procreation, but it is also meant to be a vehicle of expression for married couples. Unfortunately, what God designed for a joyful expression of oneness often becomes one of the greatest obstacles to our oneness. God’s Word shows us what our attitudes and expectations about sex should be in the context of the God-ordained institutions of marriage and family; to bring fulfillment and pleasure to both husband and wife.

Concluding Summary - The Sevenfold Marriage

In 1 Corinthians 7 Paul discusses how in the intimacies of marriage, husbands and wives can satisfy each other and how mutual agreement is a very important principle for a fulfilling physical relationship. As the Golden Rule says, “In everything, do unto others as you would have them do to you.” The biblical model for marriage is Christ and the Church. We can only have that kind of love by having a vital relationship with Jesus and allowing His Spirit love through us.
