Sermon: 2407 – Seven Words That Can Build a Marriage
Pray Over This
“Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. …Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.”
My home is solidly built on Jesus Christ. Joyce knows she’s not number one in my life. She knows God is first in my life. I know God is first in her life. I don’t mind that because I know she loves me with a stronger, deeper, purer love by putting God first than she could if she made me first. It is God who makes us together. In our dating life, growing up as high school sweethearts, we would conclude our dates in prayer. The first night of our honeymoon we kneeled beside the bed and gave our home to Jesus Christ. Every day we pray together at breakfast and pray for all our children, grandchildren, and for various other things. Our home is built on prayer. It began with prayer. It continues with prayer. You’ll never have a successful home apart from God.
Consider the practices you might put in place to make God number one in your home. Take steps toward implementing these practices today.
