Global Catalytic Ministries is a movement and nonprofit organization that works to help Muslims across the globe by cultivating faith in Jesus Christ. One area of emphasis for Global Catalytic Ministries is the importance of strong, God-ordained marriages that provide companionship and foster faith.
As Dr. Greg Smalley of Focus on the Family describes it, Chapter Two of Malachi explains that God makes marriages, not us, and that He inhabits even the tiniest aspects of the marriage. This creates a powerful force, as two people unite and share spirituality, intimacy, perspectives, and purpose.
Unfortunately, making a covenant under God and living under the same roof does not necessarily make a strong marriage. Some people living together for many years still relate like roommates, rather than two people who have committed to the same life path. Others who have forged strong and successful marriages can provide guidance and support to those who might feel lost or merely like roommates. Eventually, the couple that is counseled will learn to heal and grow strong, and can repay this support by mentoring others.
