But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved. EPHESIANS 2:4-5

All the pre-marital counseling in the world can't prepare you for the moment of shock when you realize just how ugly you and your spouse are...on the inside. It comes in that moment when you scream at him and he hurls hurtful words right back at you. It comes again when you fall on the couch crying and refuse to speak to him until you get an apology. In his stubborn pride, he not only refuses to apologize but storms out and refuses to be in the same room with you. In my 12 years of marriage, I have participated in situations like this one and am always later reminded how deeply selfish, stubborn, prideful and sinful I really am.

When Christ walked this earth, He was anything but surprised at our sinfulness even when His own creation yelled "crucify Him"! His people, His treasured possession, had rejected Him. They acted as though He wasn't good enough for them, let alone totally missing the long awaited prophetic arrival of their Messiah. Yet even today in our state of deadness and decay, of ugliness marred by sin, Christ loves us. He still came for us. He still gave up His life for us knowing we'd still be rejecting Him 2000 years later. He wasn't surprised by our brokenness, because our brokenness was the reason He came to earth in the first place - humble and weak, ready to die for His Bride.

INSIGHT: WE ALL LIKE SHEEP HAVE GONE ASTRAY, EACH OF US HAS TURNED TO HIS OWN WAY; AND THE LORD HAS LAID ON HIM THE INIQUITY OF US ALL. ISAIAH 53:6

Dear Lord, Thank you for sending Jesus to die for my sins. I am no different than the ones who yelled "crucify Him". I still reject You every time I choose to argue with my wife because I'm stubborn and prideful. Help me to think of You and what You would do the next time I'm in this situation. Help me to love my wife like Christ loves His church. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
