God created marriage; we see this clearly from the moment that He declared, “It is not good for man to be alone.” Marriage, therefore, is good. It is exciting, fun, fulfilling, and rewarding. It brings joy to our lives. But all of that is not the main purpose of marriage; it is simply the icing on the cake. The best part of marriage is that it allows us to honor and worship God in a way like no other. Even as we love our spouses, we must love Christ more so that all we do, whether together or apart, is for Him. Matt Rogers, Lead Pastor of The Church at Cherrydale, will be our guest speaker. It'll be a time of laughter, worship, great food, giveaways, and a challenging word from the Bible about making Christ the top priority in our marriages. More information, including cost, will be announced soon, but for now do your marriage a favor and plan now to attend this Friday night and Saturday morning retreat.
