    Episode 125 - Saying "Thanks" Versus Being Grateful - Part II

    Episode 125 - Saying "Thanks" Versus Being Grateful - Part II

    We can say "thanks" but not be grateful. We can mouth words but our hearts are elsewhere. We are fixated on ourselves. We have probably all seen this in ourselves. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:2 that people can be "lovers of self... ungrateful." We can even sing a song of thanks while in a worship service at church but inwardly dwell on the hurt and offense we feel toward someone who wronged us the day before. Join Emerson and Jonathan in part 2 this week and continuing the conversation about gratefulness but focusing on the intangible.

    Episode 120 - The Four Seasons of Marriage - Part III

    Join Emerson and Jonathan for Part III of this three part series. Why is marital paradise lost? Why do couples feel they have left Eden and live in a jungle of sorts?  Since Scripture indicates couples will have trouble in this life why are husbands and wives unprepared?  The answer is simple: they do not anticipate and accept the four seasons.  In one way or another all couples will go through the four seasons.  Those who go through them without defeat do so because they anticipate and accept the process.

Biblical truths for Christ-intended relationships

I remember the first time I read Dr. Eggerichs’ book entitled “Love and Respect.” My mind was blown. Suddenly every relationship around me made sense. There was an immediate correlation between the individuals who were loved/respected and demonstrated love/respect, or hesitated to show love/respect and felt disrespected/unloved. Why it was working or wasn’t working. Operating in Love and Respect is the way Christ intended all relationships to build each other up and bring Him ultimate glory and honor. Even in the secular world these truths apply one-hundred percent; because they are just that: truth.

Regarding the podcast, I have genuinely enjoyed the conversational format which Jonathan and Emerson use to break down Love and Respect when applied to different relational situations. It is a simple biblical truth, love and respect as instructed in Eph 5:22-28, but this podcast helps the listener understand its principles at different angles and lenses (pink/blue), and ultimately the way God intendeds it to be. Every time I hear these biblical truths on Love and Respect, God drills it deeper into my heart and lovingly convicts me on how I can better apply them in my life and relationships. I have listened and re-listened to every single episode dozens of times, even if the episode topic doesn’t directly apply to my personal situation. I know that it can be applied to others around me and I want to encourage them in these biblical principles as well.

Thank you Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and Dr. Jonathan Eggerichs for your obedience to God by encouraging us in these truths. Love and Respect is truly the way God intended it to be. Dr. E Eggerichs, your ministry has meant so much to me over the years. I acknowledge all the time put and sacrifices made for this ministry. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

With Utmost Love and Respect to you and your families, MC

Needed this

I think you for all the time you’ve spent. I have ignored my marriage for far too long. To the point it feels more like roommates. In the blissful beginning the first three years. The most important thing I have been so far. Is my response is my responsibility. Far too long I just always excepted that I was apologizing to anyone and everyone for speaking my mind no matter what. How arrogant to think
Did my words didn’t matter because I was speaking my mind. I from beginning working my way through. My wife was uses counseling or to go through these with me. I will keep praying and continue to work on loving her more. In making me a better man
