When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

  1. That is a coincidence, I forgot to mention in my last post that in 1984 the summer Olympics were held in Los Angeles in 1984. Your mother and I participated in the "Olympics" at our elementary school in good old Los Angeles unified school district that year. I wanted a medal sooo bad. Never won one. I think maybe we should have hopped on the short bus that morning and tried out for the Special Olympics and maybe we could have had a chance. Maybe not. Good thing you have your Dad's athletic ability.

    The only Mysteries I ever had in L.A. were trying to get around on the freeways, never solved that one.
