6 Ways to Know You’re in a Christ-Centered Marriage

3. Spiritual Emphasis (together and separately)

Our highest calling as Christians is to know God and to glorify Him.

We cannot do this effectively if we are not seeking the Lord individually and as a couple. It is so vital for the life of the believer to come before God alone and study His word and worship Him (2 Timothy 3:14-17). And it is also important to come before the Lord as a couple.

If our biggest priority in life should be Christ, and our second should be our husband and family, then how can we effectively worship the Lord if we don’t worship with our family?

God designed the Christian life to be lived out in community and not in solitude.

God’s community is the church and this first begins at home! Strong families can make up a strong church of believers. Likewise, weak and inconsistent families will make up a weak and inconsistent congregation.
