I just finished up, on Sunday mornings, a short series on God-centered marriage and family relationships. I entitled this HomeWord. As you can see in our graphic, the home’s foundation is on God’s Word and the overall trajectory is upward to glorify God.
My sermons from 5/24/15 and 5/31/15 are now online:
God-Centered Marriage (Communication) – Genesis 1-3 was given on 5/24 and helped come up with a Biblical foundation for communication and, turning the corner, impart some measure of grace in how we can use our words for God’s glory.
God-Centered Marriage (Conflict) – James 4:1-10 was given on 5/31 and helped show how conflict is rooted in our our selfish hearts. Humility was encouraged as the God-given way to engage in conflict.
I hope these contributions help encourage positive actions in marriage.
My 5/17/15AM sermon, God-Centered Marriage (Roles) surveying Genesis 1-3 is now online. This message had me wrestling with the Biblical tensions around what role the husband and the wife are to play in marriage and how they are informed by the Gospel. I hope it encourages you.
My 5/10/15AM sermon, God-Centered Marriage from Genesis 2:18-25, helped launch our new HomeWord series (grounding families in the truth of God’s Word through the Gospel to God’s glory). This sermon, in particular, focused in on some of the broad contours of what God intends for marriages that honor Him. For instance, God is the point of marriage, there are roles to be seen, a marriage should think one not two, utilizing wise communication and celebrating physical intimacy are the highlights from this week. I hope it encourages you and drives to live to God’s glory in your relationships.
…for your practice of your role. This was the focus of HomeWord this past Friday evening. Audio of the message Role Motivation from Colossians 3:17-19 should be available soon.
Wives are to submit as to the Lord.
Husbands are to love their wives and not be harsh with them.
What drives our hearts, though, should be motives of thankfulness, pleasing God and love. So, how goes it with you?
