Finding Love
Love Lessons from Ruth & Boaz (Season 2) Ruth left her way of life and surrendered to God’s Love. His never-stopping, never giving up, un-breaking, always, and forever covenant love. We can’t truly love our spouse unless we know the love of God. God’s covenant love prepares us for the covenant love of marriage. We love because He first loved us. So many of us are striving when we should be surrendering to His love. God gave Ruth a new identity and from her family line came King David and Jesus. We are all broken people but God can do anything through anyone. Look at the change one broken person can make in a family by walking with God faithfully and humbly. Your relationship with Jesus is the most important relationship. It will transform you to have a beautiful covenant relationship with your spouse. We have an ALL-NEW Premarriage resource called Preparing for I Do! It comes with a premarriage assessment from Jimmy Evans and videos and a workbook from Dave & Ashley.
