3 Principles for Understanding Marriage


* Today's Blog Post is an Outline from Bro. Josh's sermon notes on  2/26/17

 

Marriage Matters

Ephesians 5 & Genesis 1-3

3 Principles of Understanding Marriage

1.) Marriage is a Sacred Covenant with Secular Implications.
-God defines it

-God is glorified by it
-Sin profoundly impacts it
-Society benefits from it
-Society must account for it

2.) Boys and Girls are different
-They have different physical, spiritual, and emotional needs
-They have different ways relating to each other
-They have different responses

3.) Love is a Commitment that requires a Choice be made
New Testament
-Phileo Love is a relationship
-Eros Love is a desire/attraction/urge

-Agape Love is a Choice 
Old Testament
-Hesed sometimes rendered “loyalty” (2 Sm 22:26 rs), more often “steadfast love” (Gn 39:21) or “kindness.” Hesed is not an emotional response to beauty, merit, or kindness, but a moral attitude dedicated to another’s good, whether or not that other is lovable, worthy, or responsive (see Dt 7:7–9).
