As we focus another day on the health of our families during Family Wellness Month, we want to continue with a second book on marriage.
God's goal for marriage is oneness:
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh" (Eph. 5:31).
God's standard for relationship with Him is the mystery of oneness as well:
"I in them and You in me . . ." (John 17:23).
"The mystery, Christ in you . . ." (Col. 1:27).
Sadly, many Christians never even come close to either of these desires that God has for us.
Without oneness with God, oneness in marriage remains an illusive quest. Learning to be spiritually empowered in the pursuit of both of these goals is the key.
The Miracle of Oneness: Becoming One in Marriage Through Oneness with God, by Ed Malone, seeks to be your guide as you allow God to fulfill His great desire for you and your marriage.
Author Ed Malone is pastor of Christ's Community Church in Cookeville, Tennessee, with 35 years experience as pastor and counselor. He and his wife, Gale, have been married for 40 years and enjoy life together on their farm. They have two children and eight grandchildren. Ed holds an M.Div. degree from Southern Seminary.
