Great Sermon! it's so refreshing to hear this kind of truth being taught. not the 'try harder', but rather the reality that no matter how hard we try we can never live a holy life unless we abide in the Vine. thank you!
Incredibly HELPFUL series!!! This series has been incredibly helpful in practical instruction that transcends "knowing" about Biblical Womanhood to living it out day to day by grace. Highly recommend it for all women: mature saints, new believers, church/Christian upbringing, converted from a pagan background, married to an unbeliever...yes, ALL WOMEN will benefit from this series. When pastors or husbands listen, you, too, will recommend these messages. God was drawing me to submit to my unbelieving husband, yet my flesh resisted in self-pity, after this series it is easy to name that disposition as what it is: sin, and look to the Holy Spirit for the Christlike love I need to live as 1 Peter 3 calls me to. Highly recommend this series for all women, that was just one gem I found in this treasure of Gospel-centered instruction and exhortation.
Praise God Very helpful sermon. This is a sermon to put on cd and give to as many brothers and sisters you can, praying that God will use it to work truth in their hearts - encouraging His children to press on into the Kingdom with Him and bringing others to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
OUTSTANDING! Did you get saved after you got married? Are you wondering how to love an "enemy of God", who is beholden to the very same sin nature that ruled your heart before you came to know the Lord? Did you think your spouse would get saved immediately after you, but they didn't, so you've been spiritually alone in your marriage for some time now? Is the distance between you and your spouse growing as you get closer to the Lord and they are still outside of Christ? This will encourage and edify you...this sermon will instruct you on the importance of honoring God through sacrificially loving your spouse in a Christ-like manner. I found this very practical in helping me understand why I must "go against the grain" in loving my husband when he is cruel or "unlovely"...(this is obviously how we take up our cross and treat others the way we were treated by Christ before we were saved, He died for us when we were yet enemies of God) yet, it is tough to live that out. This sermon helped, it made the difference in moving from KNOWING I must love my husband regardless to MOTIVATING me to love him from my heart as joyful obedience to Christ.
