Having good relationships whether you are single, dating, or married are possible, it’s just that they don’t come naturally. Most of our relationships are contractual. Meaning as long as you do your part, I’ll do mine. But once we let someone down or someone hurts us we tend to end our commitment to that relationship. But that’s not how God’s relationships with us is. God has modeled a covenant relationship with us where He has promised that He will never fail you or abandon you! When we incorporate this type of covenant into our relationships and marriages, it can drastically make them better. Pastor Sean shares what a covenant relationship in marriage looks like and gives us 5 commitments God makes to us that we can apply to our marriages in order to make them above average.



5 Commitments God Makes To Us


1. He Prioritizes You

1 John 3:16 We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.

2. He Pursues You

Revelation 3:20 “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.

3. He Chooses You

1 Peter 2:9 But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

4. He Protects You

Psalm 1221:7 The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.

5. He Shows Mercy To You

But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much,  that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.



Who should you be prioritizing?

Who are you letting drift away?

Who do you need to give yourself to more fully?

Who’s good should you be working toward?

Who are you not forgiving?
