We would like to tell you that by accepting Christ’s gift of eternal life that you can “affair proof” your marriage, or for that matter “problem proof” your marriage. But according to the statistics, that just isn’t so!

You see, accepting Christ’s gift of eternal life has little effect on your marriage … unless you choose to closely follow the ways of Jesus Christ for marriage! Now we want to assure you that: A transformed marriage looks nothing like the marriage of a worldling: It is sacrificial, joyful and it models the relationship between Jesus and the Church.

As Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Palos Verdes CA, explains the roles God has given to husbands and wives, we have the opportunity to respond by choosing God’s wisdom …

Expressing and receiving God’s love is what Dr. Smith’s book, In His Image, is all about. As you respond to God’s Word and wisdom today, we are sure this book will show you both how to love like God loves and prepare yourself to receive al your spouse has for you. Copies are available on the side bar at the EaglesInLeadership.org website. We encourage you to order yours today.
