Yesterday was the launch of a new website called Gospel Husbands. I am excited to be a regular contributor to this site and already have a couple of articles there for your perusal. In the first one I answer the question of why I am contributing. Here is the first part of the answer,

‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
(Matthew 19:5-6 ESV)
