Living By the Book: God's Pattern for Marriage

undefined

Speaker: JD Summers | Date: September 16, 2018 | Text: various

Sermon Summary

God designed and instituted marriage to bless his people and glorify his name. Often, however, due to our own desires or the influence of our culture, we minimize or misuse what God has given us. Marriage is a gift from God, and it is easy to idolize it rather than enjoying it as such. There are high callings in marriage to serve, love, and help a spouse or children, and it is easy to try to avoid these duties and rather look to our own interests. But if we look to Scripture and see the beauty of the gospel that marriage points to, we will instead orient our worldview around God's revealed truth.

Sermon Summary

Everyone bases their life on something. Some find their authority in themselves, making decisions that serve their own desires. Some live with the world as their authority, influenced by the popular opinions of the day. But Christians must base their lives on the Word of God. Christians should live by the book in order to glorify God, to make disciples, and to grow in joy.

But God Meant it for Good

Sermon Summary

As the book of Genesis comes to a close, Joseph's interaction with his brothers shows his view of God's sovereignty. He has total confidence in God's goodness and his control over all things in life, even the sin of his brothers. While they meant to harm him, God was actually orchestrating events for his own good purposes. Taking this view of God gives us confidence to face the trials in our lives, knowing that God is in control and is using it for our good. And like Joseph, believing that God is sovereign means we can forgive those who wrong us and not harbor resentment.
