Selah: Processing the Pandemic: COVID, Conflict, and Marriage
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.
_________________________ or “settling for” Should not be a Consideration.
You need to enter a Relationship with closely held ___________________________ not Compromises.
The Highest Level of a Marriage Relationship is the ____________________________ Level.
This is where God has supernaturally intermingled Two-Souls as One-Flesh (Gen 2:24, Mat. 19:5) with His Desire being Both Husband and Wife are Pursuing Jesus Together.
2 Corinthians 6:14-15
Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
We see first and foremost, if the other person is not a _____________________, they are not a Spousal Candidate!
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope at your calling— 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.
1 Peter 3:15a
Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. 16 But do this in a gentle and respectful way.
1 Peter 3:1-2
In the same way, wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, even if some disobey the word, they may be won over without a word by the way their wives live 2 when they observe your pure, reverent lives.
1 Peter 3:1-4
There are husbands who, indifferent as they are to any words about God, will be captivated by your life of holy beauty. What matters is not your outer appearance—the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes—but your inner disposition.
___________, ____________, _____________.
And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.
Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
