Growing Together in Faith: Spiritual Growth in Marriage

A Christian marriage is a beautiful union blessed by God. But beyond the initial "I do," lies a lifelong journey of growth and commitment. While nurturing your love and building a life together are important, incorporating spiritual growth into your marriage is equally essential.

Growing together in faith allows you to deepen your connection with God and strengthen your relationship as a couple. Here's how to embark on this shared spiritual journey:

Nourishing Your Spiritual Connection:

  • Joint Devotions: Set aside time for daily or weekly devotions. This could involve reading scripture together, discussing devotional messages, or reflecting on personal prayer time.
  • United Prayer: Develop a habit of praying together. This can include spontaneous prayers throughout your day, bedtime prayers, or dedicated prayer sessions where you pray for each other, your family, and your future goals.

Serving Others Together:

  • Volunteer Together: Find opportunities to serve your church or community together. This not only helps others but also strengthens your bond as a couple and allows you to use your combined talents to make a difference.
  • Embrace Spiritual Gifts: Encourage and support each other's spiritual gifts and callings. Whether it's music ministry, teaching Sunday school, or simply offering kind words of encouragement, using your gifts together can deepen your faith.

Reflection Questions:

  • How can we incorporate regular devotions into our routine?
  • What are some ways we can serve together as a couple? By prioritizing your spiritual growth as a couple, you create a foundation anchored in faith. You learn to navigate life's challenges together, seeking guidance from God, and fostering a lasting love that aligns with God's will.
