Immediately below here is the outline we used in the message yesterday--check it out!
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the
church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by
the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a
radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and
blameless. 28 In this
same way, husbands ought to love their wives as
their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed
and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body.”
BIG IDEA: God designed a man to meet a woman’s significant
needs for love if he will lay his life down for her.
Communication with nuance and feeling is the
way to connect with a woman.
Initiating direction is something that a woman seeks.
The number one need of a woman is security.
What is God saying to you in this
How can you begin to communicate
the love that someone is sending you this week?
