Glorious Marriage

Paul Washer on Marriage:

“Even though marriage can be a glorious thing, you know what marriage is about?

Conforming you to the image of Christ.

And God does not search around to find you a mate that is compatible. More than likely he is going to search around and find you a mate that is totally incompatible with you. Why? He’s going to give you a mate that is strong in all the areas where they must be strong that you not be tempted beyond what you could bear.

But he’s also going to give you a mate who fails in some of the areas you most don’t want them to fail so that you become like Jesus…and what does that mean? So that you learn to love someone unconditionally who doesn’t meet the conditions.”
