FIRST: Jesus First in our Marriage

FIRST: Jesus First in Everything – Colossians 1:15-20 – Pastor Tim and Tami

FIRST – Jesus First in your Marriage

Genesis 2:24 – Leave and cleave, become one flesh

Shift in priorities – not longer about you as an individual

Psalm 107 – “He satisfies the longing of my soul.”

It starts with me finding my satisfaction in HIM
– love the Lord your God with all of your being and THEN love for others flows from that.

This relationship exposes areas where we need growth that we need to acknowledge

When our relationship with Jesus is first and right, our marriage is better
When we love the Lord, we can love our spouse better

Spiritual growth can equal relational growth
– the Fruit of The Spirit – shouldn’t they be alive in our closest relationships?

When Jesus is first, we are learning from Him what it looks like to treat someone else

Ephesians 4:32 – 5:2
Be kind and compassionate, forgiving each othert – like Jesus – Walk in the way of love – like Jesus

One of the greatest things we can do for our spouse is pray for them, pray WITH them
