Oct. 22 - Marital Mission (1 Pet. 3:1-7)
First listen to the sermon (posts Sun. afternoon). Then use the ideas below to help you and your group apply what the Lord is teaching you. Icebreaker idea: What's one thing that makes for a good marriage?
A way to pray: Pray for growth and protection for each other's marriages (past/present/future, as applicable) and for other marriages in our spheres of influence.
- Treasuring God: How does our relationship with Jesus affect our view of marriage and how we relate to our spouses?
- Being Transformed: What do "a gentle and quiet spirit," "showing honor," and living "in an understanding way" look like practically?
- Loving Others: How can our marriages tell the good news of Jesus to those around us (our kids, friends, families, and community)?
- Pursuing Unity: How does godly submission increase unity in marriage? How does it increase unity in the church?
