Love Growing Soil




 

Love Growing Soil

 

What’s the problem?

 

Am I doing what I want, what my boys want, or what it takes to finish in the top 10?

 

Am I doing what she wants or the kids want?

 

Emotional and Physical love have limits. Spiritual love knows no limits.


God says you are.

 

  • Created to be God’s man

 

Genesis 1:27

 

So, God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

 

Genesis 2:20-24

 

But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So, the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman, ’for she was taken out of man.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

 

  • Called to what may seem like an impossible adventure - To be Jesus to the ones I lead.

 

Ephesians 5:22-23

 

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.

 

1 Corinthians 11:1-3

 

Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the traditions just as I passed them on to you. But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God

 

Ephesians 5:25-27

 

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 

 

  • Culpable to God for our wives.

 

How do Leaders serve?

 

  • Focus on what she needs!

  • Invite others to follow in the adventure.

  • Set Direction

  • Live from purpose

  • Practice values we will and will not live by

  • Communicate clear expectations and consequences.

 

Emotional and physical love have limits. Spiritual love knows no limits.


Will you answer the call?
