Most people want to get along with others, but does it really matter to God whether we are nice or selfish in our relationships? Today, listen as Pastor Erin explains how the gospel impacts our relationships and how we interact with the people in our lives.
In 2019, the Riverwood family will be looking at how the Gospel affects multiple areas of life. We will look at how the life & death of Jesus affects our view of self, our view of money, and our view of time. But before we get to any of that, we will be looking at how the Gospel affects our relationships. And in this first week of the series, Riverwood’s Teaching Pastor, Erin Bird, tackles the topic of marriage.
Many people within our American culture think of marriage as an emotional and sexual prison. Why else do 41% of all marriage experience emotional and/or physical infidelity? And why else would 74% of men and 68% of women be willing to have an affair if they knew they wouldn’t get caught? Clearly, marriage is viewed by many as a shackle.
But rather than be a jail that keeps us from joy, what if God designed marriage to not only fill us with joy, but to help us become more like Jesus? Whether you are married or not, learn how God designed for husbands and wives to operate within marriage.
