Fear of God Devotional: The Importance of Keeping Short Accounts in a Marriage



What does repentance look like between a husband and a wife?

Dennis Gunderson explains in this video that a marriage where the husband and wife are one flesh is a relationship that is the closest human union there is. It is a picture of Christ and the Church. 

If unity between spouses is to be enjoyed, deepened, and enriched, both spouses must keep short accounts with one another. They must not let great gulfs of time go between instances of sin. If one spouse sins against the other it is important to repent and make it right as soon as possible. 

Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV) – “ And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”
