    Marriage: What Is It and How to Do It 52% of all Americans over 18 are married. Is marriage important? Marriage is struggle today. The solution is simple, but not easy. Marriage needs to be based on the Biblical model. Biblical Marriage is:
    Genesis 1:27 &2:23 – between one
    man and one woman
    Genesis 2:24 – the
    primary
    human relationship once it is established
    Matthew 19:5 –
    one flesh
    relationship
    Genesis 2:25 – a
    naked
    relationship
    Matthew 19:6 – joined by
    God and not to be separated by man
    Ephesians 5:21 – mutual
    submission
    Ephesians 5:33 –
    respect and love How Do You Do Biblical Marriage?
    1 Peter 5:8 – with
    alertness
    1 Peter 5:6-7 – with
    humbleness
    Romans 12:2 – based on an act of the
    will not emotions
    Hebrews 12:2 – focusing on
    Jesus
    Romans 8:26 – with complete dependence on the
    Holy Spirit
    Hebrews 10:24-25 – with the help of the
    church
    1 Corinthians 13:8a – God’s love never
    fails Our marriages don’t have to fail, if we individually and as couples are centered in and living out God’s love. That love comes when we surrender our lives to Jesus as our Lord. Two this God wants today:                                                                                                     For some of you to surrender your live to Jesus’ authority.                                            For all of you to surrender your marriages to Jesus’ authority.

    The Cross It’s Witness
    Series: Easter
    The Cross: Its Witness John 19:17-18 (CEB) All God’s plans have the mark of the cross.                                                                                                                                All God’s plans have death to self in them. The cross makes us decide.
    Two types of people in relationship to the cross:                                                             (1) Those touched by
    Chance                                                                                          (2) Those touched by Choice Those Touched by Chance by the Cross: Pilate: Mark 15:15 (GNT) – Fear
                                                                                         Fear caused Pilate to miss the truth – John 18:38 (CEV)                                                                   Missing the truth leads to death
    The Crowd: Mark 15:9-14 (ESV) – Deception                                                                                    
    Their deception lead to hatred                                                                                                                     Hatred leads to death
    Malchus: John 18:10 (NLT) & Luke 22:51 (NCV) – Healing
                                                     The healing should have led to a changed life                                                                           The lack of a changed life leads to death
    Roman Centurion: Mark 15:37-39 (ESV) – Faith
                                                                          Faith should lead to a changed life                                                                                       James 2:26 (NIV) – faith without a changed life is not faith                                                                  Example: Abraham – Genesis 12:1,4 & 15:6 (NIV)                                                         Example: Rahab – Joshua 1:9 & 2:1 (ESV)                                                                Lack of faith leads to death
    Barabbas: Luke 23:18-19 (NLT) – Deliverance
                                                                       He was literally delivered from death                                                                                            Romans 8:1-2 (HCSB) – Jesus can do this for any of us
    Those Touched by Choice by the Cross: The Ten Disciples: Matthew 26:56 (NET) – Fear and Guilt
                                                                                                    It gave way to faith and boldness – Acts 1:8 & 2:4,7 (NIV)
    John: John 19:26-27 (NIV) – Love and Devotion
                                                                               It led to intimacy                                                                                                       Revelation 1:1 (NIV) – Jesus reveals Himself to those He can trust
    Mary: John 20:11 (NLT) – Grief
                                                                                                                                                                             John 20:18 (NLT) – grief turns to joy                                                                                 Psalm 30:5 (NIV) – weeping is in the night joy comes in the morning
    Joseph and Nicodemus: John 19:38-39 (CEB) – Secrecy               
                                      Hidden faith gave way to open faith and freedom through the cross                                Matthew 10:32-33 (ESV) – acknowledging Jesus leads to truth                               Truth leads to freedom – John 8:32 (NIV)
    The cross draws a line:                                                                                                                                            Peter: Luke 22:60-62 & John 21:15-17 (ESV)                                                                   Judas: Matthew 26:47-49 & 27:5 (NLT) The cross is the deciding point in our lives.
    Where the cross leads is up to you.
