All The Feels – 4 Myths About Marriage

Pastor Lis Burns

February 21, 2021

For better or for worse, all of our ideas about marriage were influenced by something. Marriage Myths:
  1. If you wish it, it will get better.
    • Marriage takes work.
  2. Perfect people exist.
    • No one is perfect.
  3. Your love can make someone better.
    • People have to want to be better.
  4. Physical affection can sustain us.
    • Physical affection should be a benefit of a solid relationship, not the reason for one.

1 John 3:18  //  Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

  • Love is not a feeling, it’s an action.
  • It’s not enough to say it, you have to show it, too.

John 15:12  //  My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

  • Love is not a feeling, it’s a choice.
  • Even when I don’t feel love, I choose love.

John 15:13  //  Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Ephesians 5:25  //  Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

  • Love is not a feeling, it’s a sacrifice.
  • True love will always require a sacrifice.
