Marriage, part 4

Foundation

Luke 6:46-49 (ESV)

Build Your House on the Rock

46 (A)“Why (B)do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? 47 (C)Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.[a] 49 (D)But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and (E)the ruin of that house was great.”

1. Love

Colossians 3:14 (ESV)

14 And above all these put on (A)love, which (B)binds everything together in (C)perfect harmony.

1 Corinthians 13:1-8 (ESV)

The Way of Love

13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have (A)prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, (B)so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 (C)If I give away all I have, and (D)if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.

4 (E)Love is patient and (F)kind; love (G)does not envy or boast; it (H)is not arrogant 5 or rude. It (I)does not insist on its own way; it (J)is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it (K)does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but (L)rejoices with the truth. 7 (M)Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, (N)endures all things.

8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

2. Respect

Matthew 7:12 (ESV)

The Golden Rule

12 “So (A)whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is (B)the Law and the Prophets.

Ephesians 4:29 (ESV)

29 (A)Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give (B)grace to those who hear.

3. Honor

Colossians 1:9-10 (ESV)

9 And so, (A)from the day we heard, (B)we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that (C)you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all (D)spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as (E)to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, (F)fully pleasing to him: (G)bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

Hebrews 13:4 (ESV)

4 (A)Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge (B)the sexually immoral and adulterous.

4. Trust

Proverbs 31:10-12 (ESV)

The Woman Who Fears the Lord

10 [a] (A)An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than (B)jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
