Movie Description: Kirk Cameron (Left Behind) stars as Caleb Holt, a heroic fire captain who values dedication and service to others above all else. But the most important partnership in his life, his marriage, is about to go up in smoke. This gripping story follows one man’s desire to transform his life and marriage through the healing power of faith and fully embrace the fireman’s code: Never Leave Your Partner Behind.
In 2008, I watched the movie, Fireproof. It was an amazingly incredible Christian film. Unfortunately, the reviews from some people were very negative. I recognized that people watching this movie noticed that some actors were so bad. Some people thought that the film was too broad. Some people mentioned that Kirk Cameron’s acting was awful. What about my own opinion?
I do not care about other people’s opinions nor the negative reviews. As for my own view of this film, I believe that the marriage is the sacred institution in God’s eyes. In Matthew 19:6, “What God has brought together, let not man separate.” Admittedly, I was a divorced woman before I got remarried. My story was different. My ex husband walked out on me and my sons; he was the one who filed for a divorce. It was his choice, not mine.
Now, I am very blessed to be a good wife and mother. God lead me to find a righteous man who loves God first before me, and I married my Justen who is now a Pastor.
Let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. ~ 1 John 4:7
Yes, this verse is very powerful. For example, a person sees back from previous days, but you must allow God to change your heart to love because you want to ask Him to lead you to where you stand with Him, and ask for the strength and grace to establish your eternal path.
What I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did it for your sakes in the presence of Christ. ~ 2 Corinthians 2:10
You need to forgive your spouse unconditionally, ask God to help you saying rightfully, “I forgive you, forgive me.”
These verses are my favorite bible verses for my marriage, it helps us to work problems out no matter how hard our marriage is. We are still learning a lot. Nothing’s stopping us to learn more. We work together in our marriage with God.
