Spiritual Discovery

When tough times arrive in your marriage—whether due to job loss, health crisis, pornography use, or simply baggage you both carry into your union—there’s nothing like the comfort of knowing that when you’re joined in faith in Christ, you can seek God together to see you through. The added bonus of prayer for and with each other is one of God’s great gifts. But perhaps you and your spouse aren’t on the same page spiritually—you’re more interested in growth, while your mate is comfortably complacent. Or perhaps you are the sole Christ-follower in your marriage. Whether your relationship is built around a common faith you seek to live out daily and share with others, or you’re the only believer in your family, there’s so much God longs to offer you. Your spiritual walk is a journey of discovery, in which you seek God through prayer, Bible study, evangelism, and fellowship with other believers. The following articles will guide and encourage you in the process of this discovery—whether you do it on your own, with a spouse at a differing stage of spiritual maturity, or joined hand-in-hand with your mate, eager to grow together and bring the good news to those you encounter in your everyday lives.
