Fulfilling Your Role In A Struggling Marriage As A Christian Spouse by iliyande(m): 8:36am On Feb 28, 2016
God's grace and power is key to everything we do in life. It is key to us conquering sin and death, to us being excellent in our jobs and most especially to thriving in a God-ordained union between man and wife. Apart from the grace of God, marriages will come crumbling or simply surviving the waves, but with God's grace husbands and wives can enjoy and fulfill the fullness of the gift that is marriage.

Here are verses that help us fulfill our roles as husbands and wives in a marriage.

James 4:6 | But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: "God opposes the proud, but shows favor to the humble."

Humility is key to accepting that we cannot fulfill our roles apart from the love and grace of God. When we submit to His will and sovereignty, we can turn to Christ in every twist and turn we face in our marriage.

2 Corinthians 9:8 | And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.

It is not our spouse nor ourselves that can bring wholeness. The Bible promises that we have sufficiency in everything through God's grace. As a result, we can love and submit to our spouses regardless of their actions because it is Christ who ultimately satisfies us and not our spouses.

Philippians 4:13 | I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

A marriage calls for strength, and the Bible tells us that a marriage is a strong cord of three strands and the third cord, which is God, is the strongest of all three. The context of this scripture is not that God allows us to do whatever we want, but that we can do what He has commanded us to do. Guess what? Ephesians 5:22-33 is a command from God.

1 Timothy 1:12 | I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service.

God's graciousness does not result in spoiled and laid-back Christians, but in believers who are faithfully put into service.

Marriage is an agreement of two people (man and woman) who have agreed to continually to forgive each other. If you doubt me ask your parent.

To me, love and tolerance are the greatest pillars needed to support any marriage.

Yeah! Sometimes as a man you don't need to tolerate nonsense. I used to believe you have to tolerate to keep your marriage healthy but it was last night I realised you have to stand against something to keep your marriage healthy.

A man or a woman can not make a marriage succcceed, both of them must have the zeal make the marriage work. if for example the woman is struggling to make the marriage work, and the man keeps goin the wrong way, the woman is set to live the rest of her life in pains agony and anguish. The reverse is also correct. What do you make of a man that is always jumping from one girl to the other, and the wife keeps forgiving him , how long can the wife forgive ? . Also what do you make of a woman that will NEVER EVER respect her husband, a woman that will never see her husband as the head of the home... how long can that man cope ?

Well I agree with you but you did not point the roles the husband and wifes have to play. I have sen many non christian marriages succeeding, because the man and woman has decided to play their individual roles

Marriage has to do with determination, when d couple are determined to make it work and when divorce is not an option.
