Spiritual Mismatches

Greg Hochhalter

In every relationship, misalignment is already built-in; one person’s likes, habits and hobbies may be in contrast to those of the other person, but as a couple, we learn to navigate through this, managing it rather than looking at it as a problem to solve. Marriage is already challenging; being spiritually mismatched elevates the complexity of the relationship to another level. In the third installment of My Imperfect Family, Pastor Greg addresses spiritual misalignment in relationships whether you are married, engaged, or thinking about marriage. At the core is the belief that you should be in harmony—connected not only physically and emotionally, but also spiritually. But what if you are already married and are spiritually misaligned? In God’s eyes, the marriage relationship is uniquely set apart and almost always worth saving. Navigate the relationship rather than looking at it as a problem to solve. Pastor Greg shared an acronym to that may “HELP” navigate a spiritual mismatch:


H – Harness support from others. Find supportive friends who will be truthful and authentic.
E – Exercise restraint – give space; behave as a Christian. As you become more loving, your significant other will notice.
L – Live your faith. Trust in God’s timing.
P – Pray like crazy for the man or woman you love.


This is the full service. Sermon begins at 19:23.
