Part 5 – Never Give Up
WE COMMIT TO
1. Seek God
2. Fight Fair
3. Have Fun
4. Stay Pure
5. Never Give Up
(Matthew 19:3-6) Some Pharisees came to [Jesus] to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” 4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
MARRIAGE IS A COVENANT NOT A CONTRACT
A contract is based on mutual distrust.
A covenant is based on mutual commitment.
SOWING AND REAPING IN MARRIAGE
(Galatians 6:7-9) Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
You reap what you sow.
You reap where you sow.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
