I Now Pronounce You...
"It's A Family Affair"
Genesis 2:24: That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. Ephesians 5:21: Submit yourselves to one another! Colossians 3:18: Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Colossians 3:19: Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. Ephesians 5:25: Husbands, love your wives just as Jesus loved the church and gave himself up for her! Colossians 3:20: Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Colossians 3:21: Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged. Two Truths to Consider: You cannot control others. Luke 6:31: Do to others as you would have them do to you. You can control your attitude.
“For me the most radical demand of Christian faith lies in summoning the courage to say yes to the present risen-ness of Jesus Christ. The gospel is absurd and the life of Jesus is meaningless unless we believe that He lived, died, and rose again with but one purpose in mind: to make brand-new creation. Not to make people with better morals but to create a community of prophets and professional lovers, men and women who would surrender to the mystery of the fire of the Spirit that burns within. Who would live in ever greater fidelity to the omnipresent Word of God, who would enter into the center of it all, the very heart and mystery of Christ, into the center of the flame that consumes, purifies, and sets everything aglow with peace, joy, boldness, and extravagant, furious love. This, my friend, is what it really means to be a Christian.” —Brennan Manning
