Redimiendo las Realidades del Matrimonio (Redeeming the Realities of Marriage)
Todos los matrimonios se convierten en algo que los esposos no querían. En algún punto necesitarás algo más sólido que el romance; algo más profundo que los intereses comunes y que la atracción mutua. Necesitarás expectativas diferentes y compromisos radicales, y lo que es más importante, necesitarás de la gracia de Dios.
Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. Yet, in pastor Paul Tripp's professional experience, the majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.
This unique book introduces a biblical and practical approach to those realities that is rooted in God's faithfulness and Scripture's teaching on sin and grace. "Spouses need to be reconciled to each other and to God on a daily basis," Tripp declares. "Since we're always sinners married to sinners, reconciliation isn't just the right response in moments of failure. It must be the lifestyle of any healthy marriage."
What Did You Expect? presents six practical commitments that give shape and momentum to such a lifestyle. These commitments, which include honestly facing sin, weakness, and failure; willingness to change; and embodying Christ's love, will equip couples to develop a thriving, grace-based marriage in all circumstances and seasons of their relationship.
