Now if you're divorced and single...this isn't a slam on you. God has special plans for the divorced single. You're able to do ministries that us married folks can't do as effectively because you have less family obligations and you're time is more flexible.
This post is about the fact that we in the Christian community have not been focusing on the thing that Satan is running ramped with... destroying families and keeping marriages NOT Christ-centered. Once the family is gone...well the society will destroy itself.
With the advent of the latest "Christian" movie...churches have started bible studies that focus on us putting Christ as the center of our relationships. Our church started a bible study called "Fireproof for Couples" after the movie's name. Here I sat last night with couples who have been married decades next to a college student and folks who were single. Some folks came without their spouse. (I really admire that.) We were there with the same goal...bringing more of Christ and less of us in our interactions. Some women I know were there thinking...."I'm just waiting here for you to fix my husband." And some men were probably there thinking..."Alright...they'll tell her to stop nagging and trying to get me to talk." Boy did folks get a wake up when we learned that Christ is the head of what we do...not us. God has made women and men different and let's celebrate that...the way God intended.
Also I appreciated the fact that the focus is on OUR roles in Christ within a marriage. I grow tired of folks saying..."that my spouse is this...my spouse is that" when they're the one with the sin and anger in their hearts. If you have friends that do that ladies...stay clear of them. You can fellowship with them here and there...but don't hang with them often. I'll go as far as saying don't even invite them in your home. If you have single friends who are down on men...for whatever reason...steer clear of them too. Why invite trouble?
If your church isn't doing something like this...You can still do it on your own. We were blessed with a deacon Jared who really had it on his heart to start our bible study. This man isn't a bible scholar, doesn't hold a Ph.d...but has a heart for the things of God and isn't afraid to show he isn't perfect.
O.k. If you're doing it on your own... Genesis 1:27 and http://www.fireproofmymarriage.com would be a good place to start.
