For most women, feeling cherished by their husband is one of their greatest desires. For most men, feeling respected by their wife is one of their greatest desires. Often we miss loving each other fully when husbands fail to make their wife a priority and wives critique and control their husband. Cherished wives and respected husbands will flourish in the marriage relationship.

  • Satan's Desire: Destruction of your marriage

  • Couple's Decision: Reversing the curse

The Delight of Sacrificial Love in Marriage

We all have a desire to be loved, but sometimes find love elusive. Too often we expect marriage to make us happy, rather than seeing marriage as an opportunity to sacrificially love our mate. The irony is when we sacrificially love our mate—as God designed us to—we usually find that our mate responds with sacrificial love in return.

  • Dilemma we have regarding marital intimacy

  • Design of God for marital intimacy

  • Deception from Satan regarding marital intimacy

  • Discipline required for marital intimacy

  • Delight in experiencing marital intimacy

Is there anything that brings more ecstasy and tension than marital sexuality? God’s incredible gift of sexual expression to marriage couples has the potential to bring them together as nothing else. It should not be a surprise then that Satan hates great marital sexual expression. Celebrate this great gift from God and don’t let Satan spoil it.

  • Origins of sexual expectations in marriage

  • God’s design for marital sexual expression

  • Challenges to experiencing God’s design for marital sexual intimacy

  • Growing in marital intimacy

The Delight of Uniqueness in Marriage

Psalm 139 says that each of us is wonderfully and fearfully made, but those “wonderful” things about our mate often exhibit themselves in “not so wonderful” ways after marriage. Understanding and celebrating our uniqueness as individuals allow us truly to be “better together.”

  • All “fearfully and wonderfully made”

  • God’s unique design for our temperaments

  • Using our uniqueness to be better together
