Don’t Marry the Wrong Person

Today’s service started our brand new series, “Marriage by the Book,” and today’s service was all about this big idea: “Don’t Marry the Wrong Person.”

Next to following Jesus, the most important decision anyone will make is who he or she will decide to marry.  In this message, “Don’t Marry the Wrong Person,” Jeff makes sure that all know what critical qualifications your future mate should be.

We have so many singles at our church, I truly prayed that people would allow this message to resonate within them.  If all of these singles truly dedicated themselves to allowing God be involved in the mate-selection business, God would build some incredible families through their dedication.

And for all of the married folk out there, Jeff answered the question, “What if I am married to the wrong person already?”  He hit it between the eyes when he said make sure you are being the right person.  Are you loving God?  Are you showing honor to your spouse? Are you sacrificing for your spouse?

Yesterday, we worshiped to:

  • O Praise Him – David Crowder Band
  • Made to Worship – Chris Tomlin
  • Your Home – Travis Agnew
  • Made Me Glad – Miriam Webster (Hillsong)
  • Came to My Rescue (Reprise) – Hillsong United

All of our services have been growing the last few weeks, whoever you guests are, we are so glad you are worshiping with us!  If we can help you take the next step, make sure you let us help you get connected.

Just a funny side note: Jeff gave me these fill in the blanks and scripture passages last week to put up on the screen for him.  At Sunday morning around 8, he asked, “Trav, did I give you Galatians 5:12 for the last verse?”

“Yep.”

“It’s supposed to be Ephesians 5:3.”

“Well, what does Galatians 5:12 say?”

See for yourself:

As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!  – Galatians 5:12

While this verse really wasn’t intended for this message, it might be helpful for some with dating issues.  Either way, that’s funny.  I don’t care who you are, that is funny.

    I got home tonight and checked my e-mail and a friend had sent me something I thought was kind of cute. Especially after the discussions we had tonight in my C-Group, so in light of the new lessons we have been learning this week on a wife submitting to her husband and a husband loving his wife. I thought I would share with you my email and you could pass it on. Fill free to share it.

    The man of the House

    A husband had just finished reading a new book entitled,
    “You Can Be the Man of Your House.”
    He stormed to his wife in the kitchen and announced, From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I’m finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert.
    After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and we will have the kind of sex that I want. Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will
    wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe. Then, you
    will massage my feet and hands.
    Then tomorrow, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my
    hair?

    The wife replied, ‘The funeral director would be my first
    guess.’
