Ask Us Anything Q&A #3: Growing in Intimacy, Abortion, Headship/Submission, and More

In today's episode, we answer listener questions. Some on the lighter side, some tough, all honest. We answered questions about how to grow in intimacy, how to deal with a spouse who wants an abortion, headship and submission, and others. Note: we're not counselors or therapists. Seek professional help if you need it. Our answers shouldn't be construed as professional advice, and given the medium, please give grace on the nuances of each topic covered (there were many, and a few are very complex in nature). Nothing here should replace godly, Bible-based counsel or Christian community rooted in the gospel.

No Backup Plan, No Escape Clauses, No Regrets

There’s profound joy in the mutual and reckless pursuit of each other in marriage. Marriage requires a fierce tenacity that never gives up and never gives in. What does this reckless pursuit actually look like in marriage? What enables it within every complex issue and circumstance you will face? To start, look at Christ’s example. He pursues you without fail. It’s his steady pursuit that drew you to him, and it’s because of his love and grace alone that you’re in a relationship with him. David writes, “Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!” (Psalm 139:7-8). The psalmist is reflecting on God’s limitless pursuit of those he loves. The concept of a pursuing love has immense implications for your marriage. Pursuit is active, not passive. It means to chase steadily with the goal of capture. This is why it’s vital to keep dating each other long after you marry. When you work with the expressed intent of capturing your spouse’s heart, you’re in active pursuit. And more importantly, when you’re having a hard time connecting, the pursuit continues. May you throw out any and all backup plans in your marriage. When you do, you’ll enjoy the intimacy that comes only from pursuing unconditionally and being pursued exactly the same way.
