The Big Idea
Without passion, you have no marriage.
Without passion, you are friends. Roomates. Business partners. Parents. That's it. That's not what God wants.
That's not what you want. That's not why you got married. Passion is why you got married. Passion is what connects
you as a man and a woman. Passion is what keeps you in love.
You had plenty of passion when you got married. What happened to it? I'll tell you what happened to it: male-female
differences, communication problems, inability to resolve conflicts, careers, kids, not knowing how to create emotional
and spiritual intimacy, and the hum-drum routines of living together. You end up without closeness and boring each
other to death.
Sound familiar? If you've lost your passion, join the club. It happened to me and my wife, Sandy, 10 years into our
marriage. If you want it back, and I know you do, you have some work to do. God will help you, because He wants you
to get your passion back, too. God gives us the secrets to passion in The Song of Solomon.
The Action Plan
1. Talk about your dating days and recall the passion you had for each other.
2. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "I am so bored" and 10 being "I'm crazy in love", where is your passion?
3. What factors are causing your passion to be where it is?
4. Commit, together, to do what it takes to get your passion back to 10 and keep it there.
5. Agree, together, to follow my instructions in the Passion Marriage Blogs to come.
