Marriages not as doomed as we thought

45549

As I was preparing for a new marriage seminar that we begun last evening, I came across this article about the new facts on the divorce rates in our society. Seems that couples have been staying together more than we anticipated. It will shed some new light on our marriage crisis. 

Here is the link to the story posted on christianity today website:http://www.christianitytoday.com/women/2014/august/restoring-our-faith-in-marriage.html

Indestructible Marriage

Indestructible-1388444241

 

Wednesdays will be for marriages, beginning Aug 27 at 6:30 pm. Several years ago, my wife and I began conducting marriage seminars, conferences, and classes of one sole purpose. We did so to put life back into the marriage of couples. Churches have forgotten that marriage ministry is an ongoing battle that needs nurturing year round, not just a few times a year. Divorce care has become the norm in the family ministry of churches. There is nothing wrong with that, but it is reactive instead of proactive. We choose to be proactive for our marriages to survive the ongoing demise of the family in our society.

We will begin an 8 week study titled the Indestructible marriage by Jimmy Evans. We are excited to begin this new chapter at our church. Our hope is that this will be the start of an ongoing ministry that will continue to grow and feed into our family based ministries that we have to offer. I am looking forward to this time and am ready to have the flame fanned for our couples here at FBC Del Rio.

Unbreakable…permanent…enduring…Do these words describe your relationship? They can. You and your spouse have the ability to safeguard your marriage and abound in joy, intimacy ,security and pleasure. The Indestructible Marriage will show you that no matter the quality of your relationship today, you can have a lasting and thriving marriage. In this life-changing series, Jimmy Evans will reveal:

  • The perfect roles of husbands and wives
  • How to overcome communication barriers
  • Different kinds of loves and why only one will last
  • How to be romantic in your spouse’s language
  • Keys to divorce-proof and affair-proof your marriage

So many people are losing confidence in the institution of marriage and it is having a catastrophic effect on society. The good news is that marriage still works when you follow the right plan. The Indestructible Marriage will help you turn the tide and revolutionize your relationship.

Stay In The Light, 1 John 1:7

Love Is The Answer

This Sunday’s sermon will be about the ultimate answer to all life’s problems, issues, and lessons. Jesus declared in John 13:34-35-“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Love is the answer that the world is searching for. There is one major obstacle that stand in the way from a person knowing what real authentic Christian love looks like. it is us. We (the church in general) don’t love each other the way Jesus loved us. We must be the ones to set the tone, example, or precedence by loving each other so that the world can identify true love.

Betrayal

featured_HD_john13-18-30

When you think of betrayal, what comes to mind? Many of us think of the apostle Judas. Judas was the one who decided he wanted to worship money instead of Jesus. Money can be it’s own god if you don’t watch yourself. Judas betrayed Jesus for a small amount of money, but when money is the motivator to your existence then any amount will do!
