Making a Majestic Marriage, Happy Valentine’s Day!
Which one would you want your marriage to be? Full of deep affection or destructive accusation? Genesis 2 or Genesis 3? Shepherd or serpent?
In a Spirit-filled Marriage, the wife honors God by giving respect to her husband. 22-24
She honors Christ’s authority by “arranging herself under” her husband. 22-23
She represents the church in its submission to Christ. 24
How bad can it get? Adam & Eve; Isaac & Rebekah Genesis 2:21-25; 3:12; 25:27-28
In a Spirit-filled Marriage, the husband honors God by loving his wife and giving himself for her. 25-27
He honors Christ, with a self-sacrificial desire for his wife– giving himself for her. 25
He represents Christ by using the Word to
purify problem areas and perfect holiness. 26-27
Put God’s Word back into your garden at home & church
Take the change challenge: put off, renew, put on
Wife: Trust God enough to submit to your husband
Husband: Love the Lord enough to love your wife
Ask the Lord to turn you from misery to majesty
