SUBMISSION- God’s way (Part 1)

Submit to one another out of reverence out of Christ. (Ephesians 5 v 21) Wait a minute……. If children are to submit to their parents, wives are to submit to their husbands, and workers are supposed to submit to their bosses, how could the apostle Paul tell everyone to submit to one another?” A misunderstanding […]


For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. (Philippians 1 v 21) So how long did the honeymoon last for you? Years, months or minutes? Sometimes what cuts short the honeymoon period of marriage is when one or both parties of the newlyweds come to the startling realization that marriage is not all […]


But I will hope continually and will praise you more and more. (Psalm 71 v 14) The bride was radiant, her bridesmaid fought back tears of joy, the groom was tall and confident, the attendants smiled at their support, the music was joyous and bright, the flowers were fresh and fragrant. The stage was set […]


For the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce, for it covers one’s garment with violence, says the Lord of Host. (Malachi 2 v 16) Yes, God hates divorce, it goes completely against His divine design for the men and women He created. God knows what is best for us human beings, and […]


“Have you not read that……A man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh? Consequently, they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate. (Matthew 19 v 4-6) Does it strike you as add that we […]


Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together. (Hebrews 10 vs 24-25) “It’s the last game of the season. Of course, I’m going.” “It’s my favorite show. I’ll never miss it.” “Work has been stressful. I need a weekend to relax.” Most […]


All Scriptures is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3 v 16-17) It’s date night. You are looking forward to a nice evening, but you need to bring up […]


A man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. (Genesis 2: 24 NIV) Let’s pull into the gas station and get directions. No! I don’t need directions; we can figure this out. Yes, this brief exchange is stereotypical and in this day of MapQuest and […]

Your Instruction Manual for Life

His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue. (2 Peter 1 vs 3) Instruction Manuals. Some folks wouldn’t dream of plugging something in or beginning assembly work until reading that little book from cover to cover. Others think, […]

Omniscient, Eternal, and Omnipotent

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1 v 8) Life can be difficult, and marriage may be the greatest challenge you ever faced. But before you’re tempted to think you’re in it alone, […]
