"what good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? can that faith save him?"
as we have been studying James, we've been given a new and beautiful picture of one purpose of our marriage. as Ian now has a wife and a helper, he is able to complete works that he couldn't do before. because as I bring our life to him, through questions for direction, wisdom with finances, how to respond in relationships, Ian equips me to complete more and different works than I would on my own.
this change, this joy, this gift, is just one more example of God as the perfect author of marriage. it is a covenant that holds more eternal worth than I think we will ever come to know in this life.
