Preparing our Hearts to Worship
What is a Godly Marriage?
In an effort to help you prepare for the September 4th, 2016, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on Marriage, I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “What is a Godly Marriage?”. The main Scripture for the day is Ephesians 5:22-33. The other passages are either referenced in the message or provide additional insight for reflection.
(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)

Read and prayerfully reflect upon some or all of these Scriptures. Ask God to shape your life and your church’s life to match the heart of God:
