Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


“In our marriage vows, we promise to love and cherish each other, so why do we talk so much about love and so little about cherish?” (p. 25) In many ways, loving our spouses can take on somewhat of an obligatory feeling. Love is something that is touted and talked about throughout culture at large. 

Cherishing someone is far different, though. To cherish someone changes the way that they are viewed. To cherish someone is to choose to not just love them out of some sort of drudgery or obligation, but it is the choice to take delight in the one that the Lord has given to be your spouse. 

“The theme of this book is this: through the biblical act of proper cherishing, we can empower our spouses to become who they are called by God to be, and in the process can see ourselves becoming more of who we are called to be, creating a marriage that feels more precious, more connected, and more satisfying.” (p. 26)

A marriage built upon the foundation of both love and cherishing is one that will stand the test of time and that lives out the fullness of what God intended when He instituted marriage.
