Pastor Phil’s hope for couples in Australia

Pastor Phil from Kingdomcity Church joins Bec and Jeziel every fortnight to share help couples build healthy marriages. 

Pastor Phil says the divorce rate across our state has been decreasing. As there are more resources available for couples that can help them understand their relationship and prepare for marriage. “That is having a brilliant impact together with the work of churches. Which I think is good for the future of relationships in Australia.”

The Foundation of a great marriage is that each person recognises that we are all broken, and nobody is perfect. But they are still determined to believe and trust in each other to build a strong relationship. “I know it has to be anchored in a personal relationship with God. Because I would have gone shipwrecked without God.”

In 1 Corinthians 13:13 it says: “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” Pastor Phil explained that faith is the sense of being energised in the now. But hope is an anchor to our faith and the substance of our love. “The reason we hope is because we actually believe that there is a better future.

Pastor Phil hopes that couples realise the big picture of their life. “If we could as a community present the bigger picture of what our life is about. Rather than just the temporary material things that we are all clutching for in the immediate. But when people get a picture of a bigger life and more significant purpose for their life it actually sets them on a different path. My hope is that people can find that value.”
