The passion sounds holy--“Oh, I want to have a happy Christian home. I want to be married to a believer. I’ve got to get out of this relationship with my unbelieving spouse.” It’s easy to feel this way, but what did the Apostle Paul tell believers in the first century who found themselves in this situation? Paul challenges believers to stay in their marriage. Their commitment to Jesus doesn't dissolve their marriage. Instead, it means that every day their unbelieving spouse has the privilege of being near someone who has the Spirit of God living within. It means that children will have at least one of their parents who can sing “Jesus loves me” to them and read God's Word and pray with them before they go to bed. This is what the Apostle means when he talks about the believer "sanctifying the unbelieving partner and the children."
