a glimpse towards Sunday 2.12.16
Here’s a great story for this Valentine’s Day weekend…
Russell Wilson, star quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, has gone public with his celibate, God-pursuing relationship to singer, Ciara. People magazine reports how Wilson, a long-time believer and strong Jesus follower, openly admits his actions (or lack thereof) stem from his faith convictions.
Ciara, who shares Wilson’s spiritual passion says, ““We get to have really healthy conversations and focus on each other as people. That is very important to me and him. It’s very valuable. We’re just enjoying ourselves and going one day at a time and praying and staying positive. Being strong here!”
Wilson told a San Diego congregation recently, “I said to her – and she completely agreed – ‘Can we love each other without that?’ If you can love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody.”
How cool is that? There’s a lot of muck out there (do you KNOW what polyamory is??), but God’s way for life, love, and relationships still just works. It just works.
On Sunday, we’ll dig into what really works within marriage. If your marriage is tankin’ or smokin’, you need the secret, Biblical sauce we’ll be dishing out on Sunday. We’ll SERVE up a text from Matthew 20:17-28.
We are in week four of our seven-week, “Jack & Jill” marriage series. So far, God’s living and active Word has shed some needed light on all our relationships. The Gospel of Jesus has paved the way for some tweaks and reconstruction that, perhaps, are long overdue. Let God do the work He needs to do.
But Sunday is Valentine’s Day. We’re gonna elevate up and take a bit of a message series breather for this special holiday. I think we all need some relational hope. There are many who could use a dose of healing — especially on Valentine’s Day. On Sunday, we’ll deliver. Along with any cards, phone calls, chocolate, or flowers — Sunday’s services should be a part of your Valentine’s Day repertoire… single, married, divorced, or otherwise.
I look forward to teaching and being with ya’ll… at our 9 & 11 a.m. services.
