MAINTAINING ROMANCE IN MARRIAGE

Heb. 13:4; Gen. 18:10ff; Songs of Sol. 2:15ff

1. Value your relationship - Heb. 13:4.

Your relationship with someone is the position you hold in respect of that person.

2. Appreciate your Partner - V spiritually (1 Pet. 3:7; Eph. 5), mentally (Gen. 2) and physically (Song of Sol. 1, 14ff; 7).

Remember relationships = Position you hold "in respect" of one another.

3. Deal with your Partner with Understanding - 1 Pet. 3.

Your spouse is unique; That simply means, different from other people.

4. Be Courteous - 1 Pet. 3:8-9; Eph. 4:1-2.

Courtship does not end with marriage

Be humble minded, Use three phrases; "I’m sorry; Please forgive me; Thank you".

Keep wooing one another.

5. Spend time alone talking about each other’s strengths, not weaknesses - Prov. 18:14.

You came together because of your strengths, your weaknesses would not keep you together so don’t magnify them.

6. Practice Proper Communication - 1 Pet. 3:9; Eph. 4:29ff.

You must communicate in order to commune

Use wholesome words, Find a common ground.

7. Give surprise gifts - Prov. 18:16; 21:14; Jn. 3:16.

You cannot love without giving.

Real love gives.

8. Music has a great role in romance, use it - Eph. 5:18; Song of Sol. 2:4.

Agreement = symphony (A musical term)

Music is a universal language used to express deep feelings - sorrows/joys etc.

9. Eating together - 1 Cor. 10 & 11; Acts. 2 & 4

Early Church breaking bread

Jesus and His disciples eating together

Eating together helps to seal the covenant.

10. Forgiveness is a vital key - Col. 3:13; Eph. 4:32.

Use two major phrases - I’m sorry and Please forgive me.

Keep the door of forgiveness open.

11. Remember love is a labour - 1 Cor. 13:13; Rom. 5:1-5; 2 Thess. 1

Three powerful words - Faith, hope and love, Love is the greatest of these.
