Stick or Run

If you’ve been married long enough, chances are you can think of a time when you screwed-up as a spouse. Some screw-ups are big and some are small, but there is 100 percent certainty that mistakes are going to be made. The question is this: No matter what happens, are you going to stick it out or run?

The most colossal screw-up of all time happened in the third chapter of the Bible. In Genesis 3, Adam and Eve, the first married couple, make the biggest mistake possible. They committed the first sin against God. Talk about adding stress to a marriage!

Thankfully, Adam and Eve were not alone. They were in communion with God before their sin and after their sin. God killed an animal to atone for their sin. Thousands of years later, God stepped in again and offered a final sacrifice. He gave His son, Jesus, as a sacrifice for our sins past, present and future.

With Christ at the center of your marriage, you can survive anything. Adam and Eve proved this to be true. Adam died when He was 930 years old. The Bible said that he and Eve had many other sons and daughters. Even after the biggest screw-up in history, they stayed together.
