How to Strengthen Your Marriage – Tony Evans

This You Tube video features marriage tips given by Pastor Tony Evans. In this video Dr Evans talks on the subject of “How to Strengthen Your Family.” But strengthening the family starts with making sure the marriage is strengthened first. He talks about the marriage and the family being “God’s personal portrait or painting of the family as He intended it.”

Also, Dr Evans talks about the “proper atmosphere” that is needed within the marriage so the family can be strengthened. To create this atmosphere, you must start with a personal commitment to God. God’s role in your marriage is especially important “when your marriage is miserable.”

Additionally, Pastor Evans talks about “fixing” the inhabitants of the home. This, of course, takes us back to God. If anyone is going to have wisdom on how to fix themselves, it is going to be through God-given wisdom. That is because man’s wisdom is short sighted. Our focus is misplaced. Are we focused on what we can do? Or are we focused on what God can do in and through ordinary human beings? We have to put first things first, if we are going to be successful in this mission.

It’s important to note something else Dr Evan said about this mission:

“Most people today view marriage as a means of looking for love, happiness, and fulfillment. Make no mistake about it, those things are important. Those things are critical. They are just not the most important, or the most critical. Yet because we have made second things first, as important as second things are, we are having trouble finding anything at all.

“Marriage is a covenant. It is a covenantal union designed to strengthen the capacity of each partner to carry out the plan of God in their lives.”
