Higher Love: God’s Design for Your Marriage

One of the key truths we have seen portrayed time and time again in our study of Colossians is that God’s grace begins to affect our vocations. Not least of all these is that our marriages are to be understood “in Christ” (Colossians 3:18 – 4:1), and the vertical power of grace placarded in the Cross is now translated out into our horizontal relationships between husband and wife.

But in a world and culture that does not value marriage, and in a time when the knowledge of what Biblical marriage looks like is at a low point, we all need help to faithfully obey Scripture’s commands for husband and wife to live out the picture of the Gospel-love between Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:23 – 30). That is where Higher Love comes into play. Getting together with small groups of other married couples, you’ll have the opportunity to witness biblical truths with your spouse, discuss these concepts in an encouraging environments, and then take home principles that you’ve learned for walking by the Spirit in marriage.

Interested in joining? We’d love to have you! Contact the church for more details about this powerful opportunity to see the Lord of Hosts go to work on your marriage. The class will meet various Sunday evenings.
