This series has been great! To see the messages from the two weeks before this one, just look below on this blog. It just started on November 8.
On Sunday, we explored what men need to be stronger that their wives are uniquely able to meet. Check out the outline below and then the message below, starting at about the 2:43:19 mark!
Ephesians 5:21-24, 33 “21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything… 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”
BIG IDEA: A woman has the keys to a man’s heart.
A woman who wants to grow close to a man will look for ways to have funwith him.
Genesis 2:18 “The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’”
In the same way that a woman needs communication, a man needs physicalintimacy.
A man’s number one need is for honor.
Mark 6:1-5 “Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. 2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. ‘Where did this man get these things?’ they asked. ‘What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? 3 Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?’ And they took offense at him. 4 Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home. 5 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.’”
1. Praise will help a man rise.
2. Men are not tough emotionally.
4. Men will only live in houses where they’re praised.
5. Don’t talk about his faults to your friends or family.
How will you start doing what God’s word says?
