Overview

We are living in a world where people are getting married and divorced almost instantaneously. They are married today, and divorced tomorrow. Some have turned it into a craze and are marrying just because it is the popular thing to do. But they do not weigh the importance and sanctity of this honorable institution. Added to all of this, many marriages are being invaded by infidelity, Hollywood, the Internet, self-centeredness, greed, and pride, when they really should be occupied with fidelity, sharing, selflessness, humility, love and service. They are no longer about sharing, but all about egotism and personal fortification, no longer about commitment, but about our personal autonomy. They are no longer about what the Bible says is right, but about our rights. They are no longer about holiness, but about our personal gratification. They are no longer about making sacrifices and holding on but about our liberty to surrender and quit at the slightest provocation.

This book takes a closer look at the relationship Christ, the Head, has with His Church/ His Bride, for in it are all the components for a successful marriage. In fact, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul tells us that the relationship that Christ shares with His Church should be mirrored in the relationship husbands should have with their wives (see Ephesians 5:22-33).

If marriages are a representation of Christ’s, the Bridegroom’s, relationship with His Church, the Bride, then everything that we need for a godly and successful marriage is evident in that relationship.

This book offers sound, time-tested biblical precepts and practical steps that guarantee you a fail-safe, or foolproof, marriage once your marriage relationship mirrors the relationship Christ has with His Church.
