What Brad Bigney Said at the Marriage Retreat

The following are excerpts from Pastor Brad Bigney’s teaching at the recent marriage retreat.

  • Marriage is one of God’s favorite tools for growth—which means change.
  • When looking for a spouse, we tend to think the “perfect fit” for marriage is someone who won’t require me to have to change.
  • Married persons are tempted to wear a badge that says, “Marriage Martyr.”
  • Those who feel their marriage is stuck will become unstuck when they start by having more awareness of being a sinner than being sinned against.
  • Can you see yourself as the sinner your spouse sees?
  • Marriage squeezes to the surface the junk that is already in you.
  • On the day Jesus backs off on his commitments to you, feel free to back off on your commitments to your spouse.
  • Bitterness makes people unable to see.
