The Truth About Compatibility in Marriage – Christian Marriage & Relationship Advice


God will bring you into a relationship with someone most of the time Who is not only not compatible with you but is weak Tremendously weak in the very areas where you would most want them to be strong Now why does he do that? I’ll tell you why Remember our text Romans 8:28 and 29. What is the goal? Everything God does in his Providence for his children to conform them to the image of Christ Now when you think of the image of Christ what are some characteristics that just automatically spring to the forefront? Well for me Three Unconditional love Mercy and grace If I could pick out three things in which they told me you can imitate Christ in these That that’s what I think about Unconditional love Mercy and grace, let me ask you a few questions How would you ever learn Unconditional love if you were married to someone who met all the conditions Question How would you ever learn mercy, patience, long-suffering Heartfelt compassion, if you were married to someone who never failed you Who was never difficult with you, who never sinned against you, who was never slow to acknowledge their sin or ask for forgiveness How would you ever learn grace to pour out your favor On someone who did not deserve it if you were married to someone who was always deserving of all good things You see that Listen to me the main purpose of marriage Is that through your marriage you become conformed to the image of Jesus Christ Marriage I believe is the greatest instrument of sanctification You are married to a person who does not meet all the conditions So that you might learn unconditional love You are married to a person who needs mercy so that you learn to give it You are married to a person who does not deserve so that you learn to pour Lavishly yourself out on a person who does not respond appropriately and thus you become like the God you worship You worship God for these things, but you don’t want to give them to others You worship God for grace But you demand that your wife live in such a way that she not be in need of it You worship God for unconditional love but you get mad at your own wife when she doesn’t meet the conditions You see

  1. I am 17 years into my second marriage. In my first marriage and every relation before and between the two, you’d never have convinced me a relationship between a man and a woman, so harmonious could exist. My advice to anyone, find someone you respect and respects you, despite your flaws and failures. God is great, I know he sent me women in the past so I could truly appreciate the one I have now. I don’t know that we’ve ever had harsh words or raised our voice to one another. It’s out there and everyone can find it. Nowadays people are too hung up on vanity, looks, money and fame. All of it’s worthless without someone you truly love being around and can share it with.

It REALLY left me breathless ❤ It makes sense amazingly ❤ Loving, loving in spite of the defects the other person may have, loving in spite of the difficulties we may deal with, loving in all circumstances. That is the key to be happy and not only to comprehend the eternal love of God a little bit more, but also to EXPERIENCE this type of love in our everyday lives with the person we chose to live the rest of our lives ❤ God bless you all.

  9. This is really true. I personally believe in unconditional love, mercy, and grace in all man and women couples or marriages. Yet, what happens when your partner for 7 years now has changed for over a year (it's true the partner makes efforts to come back to herself), and she keeps on asking out of the relationship? When your partner wants to leave because she's no more able to love you as before, what do you do? She's no more sharing the Christian or moral values you used to share before? What do you do?

  10. Wow very deep verying encouraging…. Wonderful Godly Wisdom….Thank you Jesus for bringing this sermon I trust in you I love you lord I pray for my marriage in Jesus Name Amen

  11. I'm going through this exact situation, and for the last 365 days the mother of my child has been rejecting me, has cheated on me, has been selfish and many other negative things you could imagine. We have been together for 7 years, planned to get married since the early beginning of our relationship. She has just so so much changed this year. I have been merciful, I have forgiven, I even forgave the friend with whom she cheated with me…..I have been tolerant in ways she even recognized it. I have been praying, doing my best to always do good to her……….Yet, she doesn't understand, she still pushes me away and wants us to break up. Yet she wants us to still get married someday. I'm just so confused, and I truly believe in Marriage, marriage that accomplishes the will of God. Anyway, I have decided to pray about it, and give what she has been asking for, the break-up. I now leave it to God and focus on other aspects of my life. But I just have that voice in my which I truly believe is the voice of God, telling me we are meant to build a family together.
