Making Marriage Work in Tough Times

The apostle Peter’s first letter was written to Christians living in modern Turkey who were undergoing intense persecution. After reminding them of the foundational truths of Christianity Peter turns his attention to living out those truths within marriage.

What Peter teaches runs counter-culture to prevailing attitudes in our American society. In fact, many would probably say the Apostle was a chauvinist. On closer study, however, we see that the Holy Spirit led this man to write down timeless truths which not only still relate to marriage today, but which are the only antidote to the crumbling family structure. Far from being antiquated or outdated, Peter’s message on marriage cuts through the self-centered teachings of secular marriage gurus enabling us to identify what matters most in our marriages.
