Big Idea: We believe that God offers us answers to life’s toughest questions. Key Question: What’s the ultimate purpose for marriage? 1 Corinthians 7:1 1 Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” 1 Corinthians 7:2 2 But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. 1 Corinthians 7:3 3 The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. You don’t get married to live as if you are single. You’re not supposed live married as a single. 1 Corinthians 7:4 4 For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. In God’s design for marriage, 1+1=1. 1 Corinthians 7:5 5 Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. Married couples are to be in tune with one another in matters both physical and spiritual. Final Thought: Marriage is a picture of the Gospel, and it’s part of the mission!
