What if you took that same energy and effort and put it into your marriage? Have you ever thought about, what if you treat your office or your work site like you treat your home? Show up in your underwear saying, “Where’s the remote honey?” That wouldn’t work, would it? We have to work. It takes work to have a date night; it takes work to spend quality time talking and communicating; it takes work to live out this covenant before God.
We need to work on our relationship with Jesus Christ; it all begins there. It is all about the door, because only when Christ is living through me can I have a great marriage. And men, we need to work on meaningful conversation and romance. And the ladies here, I’m talking about the wives, they need to work on sex and they need to work on that physical aspect of the marriage.
I’m just boiling it down and making it very, very simple. Because we love to take things and make the simple complex, have you noticed that? Like working out. It is not rocket science. Being in good shape is not that difficult. What do you do? Fruits, vegetables, lean meats, do some cardio, pump some iron and you’ll be in good shape. But no, our culture has it all confused.
You have to do Pilates on steroids. You have to do circuit training and do cardio 1.5 hours and intersperse that with circuit training along with some free weights. And then the Zone diet. And then eat grapefruit 14 times a day and then… We’ve made the simple complex. But it’s not that hard.
Spiritual maturity. It is so complex, spiritual maturity. “Oh, you have to go to this class or that class and know the Greek and the Hebrew and the Aramaic and what eschatology is. And how about numerology and all the -ologies and then you’ll be deep.”
