Mark Part XLII - [Marriage Pt 4] Covenanted Sinners (10:1-12)
This Lord’s Day we begin to take up the whole issue of divorce. Last week we noted that divorce doesn’t just happen. It is the result of numerous wrong attitudes and actions that gradually destroy the love and affection that once were there, that undermine the perichoretic fellowship between husbands and wives. In our culture most marriages are begun by folks who are initially in love with one another. It is only over time that this love dwindles because issues in the relationship are not dealt with as they ought. And so because we don’t deal with issues the way that Scripture says we ought, we come up with other ways of dealing with them – and it is then that our marriages end in disaster. So how do we deal with sin in our marriages?
