5 Key Connections: Faithfulness, Marriage

November 21, 2019

Here are 5 key passages from recent Christian content around the web, including one from an article faithfulness in our relationship with God and another from an article on the joys of marriage.

What Will Come of Your Faithfulness (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

If you choose the path of purity before marriage, you will not find it easy. Some people will wonder what’s wrong with you. You may lose the affection of someone who wanted what you were not ready to give.  

3 Joys of Marriage (Miranda Webster and Evan Webster, TGC Canada)

Marriage is to be like the love of Christ for the church, one that allows us to be known and loved despite our flaws. What a joy that we can truly be ourselves in a godly marriage! 

1 John 5:13-21: Keep Yourself from Idols (Josh Moody, God Centered Life)

A real Christian does not continue in sin: they do not live in sin in such a way that they refuse to repent of sin. Someone who has been born of God is protected by God, and the evil one cannot ultimately harm them. 

Will You Be Faithful Even if It Costs You? (G. K. Beale, Crossway)

God wants us to trust in the midst of what appears to be destruction. He’s going to bring us out on the other side—and often in the midst of that, he will bless us.

Gratitude in the Midst of Grief (Abbey Wedgeworth, Risen Motherhood)

My dear sister, this Thanksgiving, as the rest of the world seems to be celebrating abundance, whether you pull up a seat to an empty table, with empty arms, in an empty house, with an empty bank account, or an empty womb, I pray that you would “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Ps.34:8). Even in the midst of all the brokenness and ruins of what the locusts have eaten, I pray that you will be moved to rejoice in what is imperishable and undefiled, the inheritance that Christ has secured for you in glory, where God will restore what the locusts have eaten. You will be seated as a guest at a table set with a bountiful feast—one that will not spoil—the marriage supper of the Lamb.
