The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on your marriage.
It’s until death do us part. Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives. While we cannot allow lesser things to destroy our marriages, we also cannot allow marriage to distract us from greater things. A jealous God asks us to pursue him first and foremost. Then life makes sense, and everything falls into its proper place.

Discussion Guides & Message Wraps
Week 1: Gospel
Have you ever tried to put together something complex without reading the directions? I have, and at times I’m left with extra parts. I ask myself: “I wonder if these are necessary?” Too often, we do the same with marriage. We do it our way and then wonder why it falls apart. God’s design isn’t easy, but to do it right, you’ve got to build it his way. This message starts a 4-week series designed for those who are married, single, divorced, and widowed. Let’s learn together how marriage is a picture of something so much better!
Week 2: Christ’s Example
