Candace Cameron Bure On How to Add Bible Reading and Faith Into a Marriage

Actress and Christian Candace Cameron Bure explained the best way to introduce Bible reading and faith into a marriage relationship.

Marriage is one of the best, most rewarding things about life. It is also one of the most challenging things in life, requiring time, work, patience and grace. Marriage is the union, the bringing together of two different people who will not always agree on every subject, including faith and religion.

In some marriages, a spouse may not be open to hearing about the gospel and message of Jesus Christ. For whatever reason, they may be resistant even when the other person in the marriage is a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. Of course, this can lead to tension and might even cause an argument or two.

However, in a clip posted on social media, Candace explains how to introduce that resistant spouse to Jesus Christ and to read the Bible. Like most things in life, we’re more likely to convince and win over people with actions than words, and Candace also suggests taking that approach.

“I think, again, it just has to be part of your daily life,” she said. “So, you don’t necessarily have to get your husband on board; you can just do it.”

That husband or wife will then see those daily activities and that example. Those actions are a witness to that person.

“So, if you don’t pray before meals, you don’t necessarily have to ask your husband; you certainly could,” Candace said. “But if you just say, ‘Hey, I’d like to pray before we eat,’ just do it. Like, that’s a simple way of incorporating your faith.”

She also mentions asking if your spouse wants to join you in reading the Bible or doing a specific devotional and if they say refuse, still do it by yourself anyway.

Leading by example and actions rather than words is always the best way to show someone else how serious you are and how much something means to you.

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the sign that the things not seen are true.”
