A CHRISTMAS MARRIAGE

MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT FOR CHRISTIAN WIVES

by Nadine Massingill

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
In the Christmas season we often hear it said, "Let's focus on Christ this Christmas." It is easy in that season to be distracted by many things other than the importance of Christ coming to us. We often get caught up in the gifts, parties, cooking, and decorating, so we forget to really focus on Jesus Christ. In the same way, when we experience marriage, we can get caught up with work, kids, schedules, and stress. And we forget to keep Christ in the center of our marriage relationship. A Christmas marriage is one with a daily focus on the gift of Christ's life in us. In any marriage, a wife can choose a Christmas marriage for herself no matter what her husband chooses.
Description
In the Christmas season we often hear it said, "Let's focus on Christ this Christmas." It is easy in that season to be distracted by many things other than the importance of Christ coming to us. We often get caught up in the gifts, parties, cooking, and decorating, so we forget to really focus on Jesus Christ. In the same way, when we experience marriage, we can get caught up with work, kids, schedules, and stress. And we forget to keep Christ in the center of our marriage relationship. A Christmas marriage is one with a daily focus on the gift of Christ's life in us. The ideal marriage would be for both individuals in the relationship to have that same focus; learning life lessons together, helping each other grow spiritually. But even when only one marriage partner is focused on a Christmas marriage, God has an open door to come in and bring rich blessings of peace, joy, and contentment. In any marriage, a wife can choose a Christmas marriage for herself no matter what her husband chooses.
