Fear of God Devotional: Repentance in Marriage

What is the importance of repentance in marriage?

Carlton McLeod explains in this video that when a husband and wife understand their sinfulness and responsibilities before God and they realize that they both really mess it up a lot, they must continually repent to God and each other throughout their marriage. There must be a constant communication and care shown between a husband and wife.

A repentant heart keeps the marriage in such a peaceful state. In contrast, an unrepentant person will not care about how their actions might negatively hurt their spouse.  

Ephesians 5:25 (NKJV) – “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.”
