I’ve learned to start hearing skepticism as the language of spiritual longing.” That is also why “El Shaddai” was created.
God Focused Relationship Creates a Good Marriage
Relationship with God also flows into other areas of life such as marriage. “But the more you are involved in the actual practice of your faith in real ways-through submitting yourself to a serious body of believers, learning regularly from scripture, being in communion with God through prayer individually and with your spouse and children, and having friends and family around us who challenge us to take our marriage’s seriously—the greater difference this makes in strengthening both the quality and longevity of our marriages.” according to Glenn T. Stanton, Focus on the Family Insights.
Mr Stanton went on to say that faith does matter and the leading sociologist of family and religion tell us so. Latest statistics also show those with a deeper faith are 35% less likely to divorce.
Jesus rubbed elbows with sinners, the lost, and social outcasts. He even went into the synagogue driving out the money changers. So, when the conversation comes around to revitalizing today’s church, “El Shaddai,” by Candis Kloverstrom illustrates Jesus is still in the restoration business.
