Scripture: Colossians 3:18-19; Assorted Proverbs (Part II)
Scripture Memory: Matthew 20:25-28
“You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Journey: God’s vision for marriage that is so much more than “Hang in there and do you’re time.” God’s vision for marriage is that man and woman would come together with a oneness, an intimacy and a passion that causes them to live for each other.

Week before last we talked about some deep and foundational truths in Ephesians 5 and we’ll return to that passage next week. Today’s message, however, is like a practical application of Ephesians 5. You may remember that to get ready for this I passed out sheets asking you ladies what, in your opinion, your husbands need to know in order to be good spouses. Today we’ll seek to hear from women and their most common, general concerns about marriage – in a biblical context.
Praying that He will bless our marriages with passionate love, unity and strength,
Will (for the pastors)
