Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: Just as their exist marriage between a man and a woman, the Bible teaches there is a marriage covenant between man and God.

(3 Principals to Marriage)

Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.


In this text it is made clear that Jesus loved and still loves the church (you and me) and gave himself for it and apostle Paul makes it clear that men are to love their wives and give themselves to their wife just as Christ did.

So it is clear that the institution of marriage is the image of the marriage between man and God.

Why do you think that Jesus never married during his time on earth? He was in love with you and I and was in pursuit and gave himself for you and I. Why? That just as a man and a woman are to become 1 flesh, God and man are to become 1 as well.

World redefining Marriage/ Satan not anti-marriage just anti-unity

Marriage without unity = broken homes, drug addictions, confused young people


Our marriage with God( Parallel) Be a Christian just don’t be 1 with God


3 principals to marriage/ And our marriage to God

Commitment = for the Groom

Need to understand Commitment = promise, pledge, vow, obligation,

Marriage is binding not until I get tired but till death do us part

People leave marriage covenant:

Bored , tired, burden with to much worries


(parallel) Many times Christians divorce God for same reasons


(Antonym) indifference= lack of interest, unimportant, low quality

Many people destroy their marriages every day by simply losing perspective of what is important and priority

We go through Salvation(wedding ceremony) to fast

Better not to make a vow than to make one and break it

How many will build a tower without first counting the cost

Repentance = Commitment

What about LOVE? / Doesn’t God want me to be happy?

( commitment creates love)

Integrity = for the Groom

1. the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles or standards

You might have been a flirt

Might have been a smoker or gambler

This maybe offensive to your spouse / New set of principals both must live by


(Parallel)Ps. 119 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. (Read Gods word to know him)


2. the state of being complete or undivided / Always ONE Mind with your spouse

Not married when with wife but Married all the time One mind and one flesh

States have integrity for Union of America

I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you

Cant live separate lives from our spouse Jesus Christ

Be hot or cold but not luke warm or I will spue you out

Accountability to the Groom

Accountability- The ability to explain one’s self

My definition: Communicating your integrity

Prayer\The church

Confess your faults one to another

Sometimes we need to let our spouse know what is happening in our minds and lives.

Checks and balances to preserve the covenant of marriage
