God designed marriage to be a life-giving, exhilarating ride of unity and power. Yes, power! He designed marriages to be powerful instruments of His Kingdom. If marriages wipe out - families, communities, and nations are the casualties. It's time for marriages to not merely survive, but to thrive! High Octane Marriage is for couples who want to experience the fullness of God's design for marriage and are willing to do whatever it takes to get there. God's power and God's design are the answers. This twelve-session book paves the road to alignment with that design and power. In High Octane Marriage you will: ~Experience the power of speaking the truth in love ~Experience the power of repentance and forgiveness ~Experience the power of freedom from past sin and mistakes ~Experience the joy of new-found unity and joy in your marriage ~Be challenged to take on everything that opposes your marriage
The primary purpose for building a high octane marriage is not just to make your life better (although it no doubt will!). The principles Amy and I will share with you do not constitute a self-help remedy. The purpose in building a high octane marriage is to fulfill God's design, bring Him glory, and advance His kingdom. That's a high calling and a high privilege, with exponential ramifications. Marriages that reflect God's Kingdom life of power, joy, and unity have a supernatural impact on their kids, their families, their friends, their churches, and their communities. These "high octane" marriages have the power and authority to exercise the ministry of Jesus to the world. They are packed with credibility and spiritual authority. They are in alignment with the truth of Jesus Christ and are set free to set others free. We were created, you and I, to live Kingdom life and bring Kingdom life to others. That's what a high octane marriage is all about. God's grace and power be upon you as you pursue your own calling to a high octane marriage. Zoom, zoom, zoom!
