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

Two- Minute Drill

Scott is really smart, but is willing to give up his intelligence just to be good at football, like all the other cool guys.  His family just moved to a new town.  Scott signs up to be on the football team, even though he sticks.  But there is one thing that he is hiding, that only his new friend, Chris, knows about.  Chris is the quarter-back, one of the best guys on the team, but he is hiding something too, that may kick him off the football team, and the only person who knows about it is Scott.  Will they be able to keep each others secrets. I enjoyed this book a lot!!!

  1. Sounds like your keeping a secret too, WHAT IS HIS SECRET? Your Dad played football and your Mom use to watch. I went once with my friends and we yelled "Go 47" which was your Dads number.
