Sermons for Weddings
This the first of the sermons for weddings discusses conflict and how to work through it during marriage.
Title: Fight Fair
Text: Ephesians 4:25-27
The context (Ephesians 4:20-24) of this passage shows that Paul is talking about putting off the old sinful nature and putting on the new nature we have in Christ. If we allow the old nature to rule we will experience lust, lies, and anger. All three of these vices will kill a marriage. But there are three things that will keep a marriage together.
- A couples onness (Genesis 2:24) requires that there be no deceit between them (Ephesians 4:25). Couples are one in Christ and one in body. Lying and deceit breaks those bonds and cause deep division in the marriage.
- A deep relationship between husband and wife requires that the couple keep from allowing anger to enter their relationship. When there is an argument, both of the combatants are in the wrong! One may have caused the fight. But if both are fighting, they both need to apologize.
- A couple should never go to bed angry. Anger allows Satan to get a foothold in the marriage.
