Jesus on Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage

The rate of divorce and remarriage among both Christians and non-Christians reveals that marriage has been reduced to a consumer relationship for most people. Jesus teaches us that divorce is an assault on the character of God, and smudges the picture of God’s purposes in the world because He is the One who makes covenants and always keeps them. He is always faithful and true. Marriage among followers of Jesus ought to point people to the love, faithfulness and glory of God. We believe that when we submit to the Gospel in our marriages, repentance of sin, forgiveness, reconciliation and a growing joy in your marriage is always possible.

Scripture: Matthew 5:31-32; 19:1-9; Deut. 24:1-4

God’s Guidelines for Growing Your Kids

Two guidelines we see from the Scriptures to parenting our kids is 1) seeking to educate them about the ways of the Lord, and 2) actively encouraging them.

How do we do this? Listen as Dr. Akin walks through God’s Word in Ephesians chapter 6 and equips us in the area of parenting.

Scriptures: Ephesians 6:1-4

Parenting from the Word

Moses tells the nation of Israel that they are to fear the Lord, which means that they are to be controlled by a healthy respect for God and a love for Him. Parenting is teaching our kids to listen to God because it’s in Him we find purpose and life. Listen to the following sermon for truths concerning our role as parents.

Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:1-15

Submission: The Way of a Christian

In a world being ravaged by sin, and feeling the pain of God’s design forsaken, believing wives/husbands have the opportunity to demonstrate what true human flourishing looks like in the home BUT too often the home is a battleground. If we would apply God’s truth to our lives we would see a lot less turmoil in the home AND more God-honoring marriages.

Scripture: 1 Peter 3:1-7
