When Sinners Say "I Do" ~ The Hope of the Gospel in Marriage, A Seminar wit...
Fri, May 5, 2017, 6:30 PM – Sat, May 6, 2017, 11:00 AM PDT
Marriage is the union of two people who arrive at the altar toting some surprisingly large luggage. Often it gets opened right there on the honeymoon, sometimes it waits for the week after. The Bible calls it sin and understanding its influence can make all the difference for a man and woman who are building a life together.
If you’re married, sex matters. Yet far too often, it just doesn’t seem to work well. Be it past sins, present expectations, or future anxieties, sex sometimes divides more than it unites. Through a discreet but honest study of 1 Cor 7: 1 – 5, this session will examine God’s intention behind the glorious gift of married sexuality.
“As Christians, we have received the mercy of God. But that reality makes an extraordinary claim upon our marriage. Mercy establishes ministry as a primary goal for marriage. From the heights of Luke 6, we will together explore what it means to “Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful” (Luke 6: 36) and how we can apply mercy to see our marriage transformed."
Only by grace can we see the reality of where change needs to happen in our marriage. But grace also trains us. Through an exploration of Titus 2: 11-15, we will discover how grace works to improve marriages by supplying God’s power to renounce old patterns, to see Jesus more clearly and to fight sin with greater success.
Join us for a two-day event looking at how we can encounter the life-transforming power of the gospel in the unpredictable journey of marriage.
