Is Your Marriage Your First Priority?

Anything and everything will get in the way of your marriage and your sex life.

  • Kids
  • Work
  • Social Media
  • Staying fit
  • Ministry
  • Keeping up with the Jones
  • Serving
  • Screen time
  • Chores
  • Insecurities
  • Expectations

In the same way, anything and everything will get in the way of your relationship with God.

It does not matter whether the things that eat up your time are mindless like tv and social media, strengthen your health like exercise and planning good meals, or are important like raising kids, working or even serving in ministry. Good things and not so good things, get in the way of our relationship with God. We get distracted and pretty soon we realize we haven’t really met with God in weeks. And it just sneaks in. Somehow God is always the One that gets pushed to the side.

Exodus 34:14(NLT) – You must worship no other gods, for the Lord, whose very name is Jealous, is a God who is jealous about his relationship with you.

Over and over and over we read in the Bible “you will have no God before me” and yet over and over we fail. God is jealous for our affection and He is jealous for our heart.

If marriage and sex mirror the intimacy God wants with us….shouldn’t we be jealous for our spouse’s affection and time? 

We know our spouse is the most important human relationship we will have. We have made a covenant to love and cherish each other until the day we die, but take a look at your calendar. How much time are you investing in your marriage compared to everything else? Are you living out your priorities?

What has gotten in the way of your marriage?

What has gotten in the way of having a great sex life with your spouse?

There is no shortage of excuses or distractions. Life will always be busy, there will always be an excuse and we will always have hard times. Wouldn’t you rather go thru the challenges of raising young kids glued together? Why not negotiate struggles with teenagers while on the same team? Wouldn’t you like to create an oasis from stressful jobs in your marriage bed?

There is no “good time” to work on your sex life because just like your relationship with God, anything and everything will get in the way. Maybe today is the day to put your marriage back on top of your priorities list. Check out the Awaken-Love Video Class for a jump start.
