May 29, 2019

This sermon is part of the "Must Listen Series". Don't skip, but listen. It will bless yours and your children's family life. 

Summary of this sermon:  (Keys for journeying together)

- As husband and wife, you are made one flesh and one bone, you can't separate until death 
- Without your husband you are incomplete, without your wife you are incomplete
- Cohabitation, premarital sex, homosexuality, divorce and remarriage are the attack on the long lasting marriage relationship 
- God's design for marriage is to make a companionship for man and that is always a woman 
- Marriage relationship is primary, not parent child relationship. 
- Man has no right to separate what God has joined together 
- Marriage is not a contract, it is a covenant. God never breaks covenant so do we 
- In the worlds system that is working against God's design for marriage, covenants are either not made or what was made is broken 
- Marriage is not just physical union, it has spiritual significance 
- According to Paul, marriage is a mystery, church the bride is getting ready for the bridegroom, Christ 
- Divorce and remarriage breaks the heart of God because they misrepresent Christ and his covenant to the church. 
- Christ will never leave His wife, the church, because it is an eternal relationship. In the same way, marriage is lifelong as it is patterned after Christ and church relationship.
