Sermons on Family & Marriage

Abraham, Jacob, Leah, Joseph

Joseph: From Pride to Humility

Joseph knew he was destined for great things. His dreams were big, and he didn’t hesitate to share them with his family. His father loved him, and his brothers despised him. Eventually, however, God taught Joseph humility and guided him to heal the broken relationships in his family. Pride gets in the way of our family relationships too. But, with God’s help, we can become humble and reconcile ourselves to our families and to God. Scriptures: Romans 8:28-32 Sermon Text: Genesis 45:4-15

Leah: From Unworthy to Accepted

Rachel was the pretty one. And Leah? Not so much. Leah’s father Laban had to trick Jacob into marrying her, and it was a marriage of obligation, not love. But despite how the world saw Leah, God saw her as his princess, blessing her with children from whom the Savior Jesus would come. Whether it’s because of your looks, your place in the family, or your past, you might feel unworthy of love in your family. But you are wholly…

Jacob: From Struggle to Embrace

Jacob always struggled and fought for his place in the world. From the time he was born until he made his way back to be reunited with Esau, Jacob wrestled with God’s plan for his life. Finally, he struggled and wrestled with God himself, finding the blessing he’d been looking for his whole life. If you have struggled to find your place in your family and in God’s family, know that God embraces you and sees you as His child.…

Abraham: From Doubt to Trust

God made some promises to Abraham that were hard for him to trust in. His offspring would outnumber the stars. And God made all these promises when Abraham was almost 100 years old without any children! Abraham doubted God’s promises and tried to take things into his own hands. Eventually, however, he came to trust God. When we’re facing family struggles, it can be difficult to be trust that God will keep his promises to bless those who stay close…

Love, Not Lust

The world uses “love” as a term to describe how we feel about everything from food to TV shows to other people. In this context, love is conditional; our feelings of love change based on circumstances and what we think about these circumstances. They are often feelings of lust, desiring after a person based on physical attraction. The love that Jesus has for us, that he showed us on the cross, is never-failing. This unconditional love is what we strive…

Teaching Moments

One essential aspect of our church are the kids’ ministries. From birth into adulthood, we build relationships with our children and teach them about how we are saved through faith in Jesus. In a society of educated ignorance and blindness, we will train our young in the freedom, knowledge, and power of Christian truth. Deuteronomy 11:16, 18-21

Sibling Rivalry

It is heartwarming to see siblings hug each other, hold hands, and interact in friendly ways. Unfortunately, this is not the status quo in many families. Sibling rivalry results in wrestling matches, hurtful words, and damaged relationships. Forgiveness doesn’t always come as easy as an apology, especially for adult siblings. But God calls us to forgive others as He forgives us, and this includes our siblings. Sermon Text: Genesis 50

The Imperfect Family

The Bible is full of people who are a part of imperfect families, from Moses to Jacob to Jesus. With imperfect families can come pain and feelings of rejection. Although you may have been rejected, remember this: you are accepted by your new family. And you are always adopted and accepted by God. Scriptures: Exodus 2:1-10; John 4:1-26 Sermon Text: Genesis 21-1-6

The Godliness of Singleness

Singleness is a gift Some of the most famous heroes of the Bible were single. John the Baptist, Paul, and Martha were all unmarried, and God used them for great things. Churches tend to emphasize married couples and children, but singles play a vital role in their extended families and their church families. Contrary to popular belief, singleness is a gift. Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 7:25-40

Parents, Don’t Obey Your Children

Parents, what’s up? Most parents will tell you that their children are their entire worlds.  However, there is danger in this.  A family that is focused on its children, rather than God, is going to experience struggles in relationships, finances, discipline, and more.  The best thing that a parent can do for a child is to teach him up in the way of the LORD, even if that means saying no. Scriptures: Proverbs 22:6; 1 Samuel 1; Ephesians 6:1-4 Sermon…

Wives, be the essential counterpart

The duties of wives has changed drastically since Jesus’ time on Earth. Yet, the Bible hasn’t changed. So what does that mean for the modern woman? It doesn’t mean she’s inferior or less important than her husband. Rather, she holds a sacred role in supporting and guiding her family, just as the Church is charged to lead people to Christ. She is the essential counterpart to her husband. Scriptures: selection from Esther; 1 Samuel 25 Sermon Text: 1 Peter 3:1-6

Husbands, Love Your Wives

Husbands have a huge responsibility. Men today feel the stress of supporting and caring for their families. Yet, God’s Word tells us that the most important responsibilities of a husband are to love his wife and guide his household to serve God. A God-fearing husband is the biggest blessing a family can have, so we’ll dig into what God says is the role of the husband in a family. Scriptures: Ruth 2; 1 Samuel 1; Hosea 1:2; 3:1 Sermon Text: 1 Peter…
