July 12, 2015 – Demonstrate Jesus’ Love to Your Spouse

Preached by Rod Benner (00:43).

Rod continues a study of Ephesians.  The love of Jesus for the world should be so clearly seen through the family relationships of Christians.  When family relationships lack the love of God the relationships get messed up and the way people see the gospel of Jesus is skewed.  God holds the marriage relationship in such high regard that he compares the love of a husband and wife to the way Jesus loves the Church.  The Father, Son and Spirit cooperate in loving submission and they don’t fight for who is going to be on top.  The Father doesn’t pridefully force his authority on the Son or Spirit and the Son and Spirit don’t pridefully fight for the recognition they know is due to them.  They lovingly work for the glory of each other and the love for mankind.

If you haven’t said it before, today is the day to declare, “Lord, I need help!  Help me love my spouse and let my family relationships show the good news and great love of Jesus.”
