So someone very close to me asked me an important question, “What can I do to get my wife to go back to church with me?” I went blank, had no clue what to say. But then I have been praying and thinking about that question, it’s been weighing on my heart.
Got me thinking about my own situation. When I met my wonderful-beautiful-graceful wife she was saved and I wasn’t, I would go as far to say that I thought Christians were brain washed morons (sad but true, those were my Saul years, lol). She lived her life through Christ and reflected His light. The more I saw how she acted and how quickly she was able to forgive it kept gnawing away at my hardened heart. God used her to reach me. So that is one way, be the light. Matthew 5:16 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” That scripture I have seen lived out and has affected my life for eternity.
I brought this question to a fellow Christian. She said pray. Pray that God softens her heart like he did yours. Make your “request” before God. Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
So what would you do, what is your advice to someone who is trying to get their significant other back to church?
