Christian love? and … Single and searching? Dating? Engaged? Married? Others? This is for you.
A four part series I felt i needed to share – this is a 4 part series by Voddie Baucham on Love and Marriage, the blibical way.
I have attended my church’s marriage seminar which is a prerequisite for church members to qualify for pastors to solemnize the marriages in church. A good portion of blibical dating, love and marriage is covered but I wouldn’t go into detail here.
In particular, I find this series very applicable to singles of either gender looking for love – godly girlfriends or boyfriends. Many of the things IN marriage should have been foundational, if you didn’t know already, now is the time!
Something not mentioned here is the 5 priorities of a biblical husband. The outcome of many pastors losing their marriage despite being the head of the church and the household, is that they get this 5 priorities mixed up.
Here’s the 5 :
1. God (Deuteronomy 6:5)
2. Wife (Ephesians 5:25-29)
3. Family and Children (Ephesians 6:4)
4. Job or Career – Providing for your family. (2 Thessalonian 3:10-12)
5. Ministry in Church. (Hebrews 10:25, 1 Timothy 3)
Husbands, don’t make ministry your God, they are different. Many pastors have fallen because they have neglected their wives in favor of their ministerial work, but forget the commands of God of the conduct of a husband toward a wife, and also to the family.
Reiterated – your serving in ministry is not the same as putting God first.
Remember the advice from Paul as he laid down the conditions for a deacon or bishop. The house must be set in order before taking care of the church (1 Timothy 3 : 5)
