Is your marriage as good as the marriage God intended for you? It can be . . . and that’s true for every Christian couple.
Christians . . . shouldn’t they (we!) be setting the standard for everything that is right, good, pure, wholesome, and hot in marriage? After all, God’s Word to mankind – the Bible – does start out with two naked people in a garden and God said it was very good. We have The Spirit. We have The Book. So, we set the standard for others to follow, right?
Would you encourage those around you to follow the example you’re setting in your marriage?
It’s not about perfection. It’s not about never messing up but, generally providing a positive, stable, loving, encouraging example to those who watch the way you walk it out – friends, kids, other married couples.
Is your marriage worth emulating? Should others follow your example? How about the marriage you have behind closed doors, when no one else can observe the true substance – the true depth and quality – of your relationship?
Do you have a marriage worth following or are you more like the crowd that, after singing praise songs to Jesus Christ on Sunday, in all honesty, has to answer “No” to that question on Monday morning?
Don’t do marriage like we’re doing it. You can do much better.
If you are providing an example for others to follow that’s awesome because you have a normal Christian marriage.
I didn’t say common. I said normal. “Normal” for the Christian is what the Bible says is normal. Sometimes we can become so familiar, so comfortable with common, sinful behavior that we mistake what is normal (how the Bible says we are to love each other) with what we commonly see around us.
Everyone struggles with marriage.
Everyone has problems.
Every couple bickers with each other.
Most married guys use porn from time to time etc., etc., . . .
First of all, these statements are not categorically true. Second, these phrases are often used like the “get out of jail free” card in a game of Monopoly. The fact that sin is common in many Christian marriages makes us comfortable with the sin in our own. It’s “normal” we tell ourselves. But, it isn’t normal, even though it ‘s common.
A normal Christian is a place of commitment, purity, Love (see 1 Corinthians 13), romance, passion, and friendship – living a life together that says, “I love you” instead of one that says, “I love me”.
Do you want a normal Christian marriage, one that will be an example for others to follow? For those who do, Lisa and I are encouraging couples everywhere to join us in

★★★★★ “100 Ways to Love This Book” By Darlene Schacht (Time-Warp Wife)
I absolutely LOVE Lisa’s writing style. I can’t help but feel like I’m enjoying a cup of coffee at her table, absorbing the warmth of her smile with each turn of the page. The love between these two authors (Lisa and her husband Matthew) is not only evident, it’s contagious! If you’re looking for his & her devotionals pick these up. Your marriage will thank you!
★★★★★ “Transform Your Marriage in 100 Ways” By The Rebecca Review
★★★★★ “Great Encouragement!” By Caitlin
Are you looking for some practical ideas on what being a godly wife looks like? This book is a great little field manual—short and simple and yet packed full of solid, biblical ideas on how to love and honor your man.
Even if you think you have a “good” marriage, you might find yourself surprised and challenged by some of her suggestions to grow in ways you weren’t expecting. Indeed, that’s how all of her personal anecdotes play out—here is a couple who had a “good” marriage, and yet through conscious choice, hard work, and walking with the Lord together, they (Lisa and her husband) have a truly fantastic marriage that keeps getting better. If you want to have a wonderful marriage, Lisa’s book is a great encouragement!
100 Ways to Love Your Wife by Matthew L Jacobson
★★★★★ “This book is a must read for all guys!!” By Terry Musclow
Enough of the pathetic failed marriage stats already…Matt’s book is a fantastic reminder that if we men can make a thoughtful investment in loving our wife we can see a return on that love investment “with interest”. How True. The sooner you read Matt’s book the less risk you might have of learning the hard way or losing altogether. Thank YOU Matt!!! I think my marriage is good but now, after reading your book, it is even better, stronger, and healthier.
