“Transformed through Marriage”
Jesus transforms us by using marriage to:
1. Make us more like Christ.
2. Challenge how well we love.
3. Expose how sinful we are.
4. Show us the power of forgiveness.
5. Teach us what God is like.
6. Give us opportunities to serve.
7. Develop our prayer life.
God has designed marriage as one of his favorite ways for us to glorify Him.
