Yesterday I laid out the need for healthy, biblical submission that is required for a missional marriage. Today we will briefly look at the second essential ingredient.
2. Christ’s mission first (A mutual prioritization’s around Christ’s mission)
In 1st Corinthians 7, Paul writes something that at first glance seems drastic and irrational. Yet, it’s in the following principle we find what should be the prioritization scheme of every couple in Christ.
This last Friday we had a wonderful time celebrating and equipping the marriages in our church. I gave a short message about building a marriage that is prepared for the mission of Christ. Below are the notes. I am dividing them up into three separate posts that I’ll share over the next several days. They are a little scattered as notes usually are, but I hope they prove helpful as you and your spouse continue to engage in the mission of Christ!
Big Idea: Christ designed marriages to not only accomplish His mission but to be a picture of it. We must fight to build a healthy marriage that is prepared to accomplish the mission of Jesus.
