Most of us, as young women, dreamed about what marriage would be like. We hoped for romance, intimate friendship, and fairy-tale like bliss. But is marriage really about our own personal fulfillment? How is God calling us as mature Christian women to think differently about marriage and its purpose in our lives and in this world? Rick Warren, in his article “The Purpose-Driven Marriage,” invites us to embrace this truth: A marriage centered on Christ should be focused on glorifying God. Our main purpose in marriage should be much greater than fulfilling our own wants and needs or even the wants and needs of our spouse. Instead it should be focused on being of the same mind, according to Jesus, so that with one accord and one voice we glorify God.
So how do we get there? How can each of our marriages, even during the hard times, find purpose in glorifying God? How can God use marriage to grow our character and make us more Christ-like? This Today's Christian Woman single-session Bible study will help you deepen your faith as you dig into Scripture, reflect on the truth of God’s Word, and take action steps to live out your faith by deepening your sense of purpose in your marriage.
