Stewards of our Spouse


A Steward is someone entrusted with managing someone else’s property and doing so according to their interests.

Have you ever thought that we are stewards of our spouse to God?  Ben Patterson explains in his excellent message,  The Goodness of Sex and The Glory of God, that one day we will give our spouse back to the Lord; the question is will they be better than they were when we first received them from God? I pray so!  This is what motivates us in continuing to post on this blog…to provide help to each other in good times and in bad.  What we share together in marriage is all from God for His glory.

We listened to this message tonight, and it was full of biblical truth to meditate on, talk about and implement in our own marriage.  Here are just a few quotes:

  • Sex is good because the God who made it is good.
  • Quality of life doesn’t exist in the great experiences we have, but in the depth of commitments we make.
  • Adam slept as God gave him His best gift, but it cost him something; We find ourselves as we give ourselves away.
  • Grace evokes gratitude like the voice of an echo…God stands over the abyss of human need and shouts, “Grace”, and a voice is echoed in return, “THANK YOU, THANK you, Thank you, thank you!”

We hope you’ll find the time to sit back and enjoy the rich truths unpacked in this excellent message.  It’s one greatly needed in our day and age.  God help us to live in such a way that ensures our spouses growth in godliness, so we’ll hear on That Day, “Well, done my good and faithful servant.  Enter into the joy of your master.”
