Marriage, Divorce, and the Heart of God [Mark 10:1-12]

What Jesus says about divorce points us to the very heart of God.

Main Ideas:
[01:04] Nothing ruins a life like a bad marriage.
[02:44] Marriage is a picture of God’s love and faithfulness
[06:08] Just because we’re following the rules doesn’t mean we’re being loving.
[08:37] Marriage is the bonding of two people into one new living family.
[09:12] God’s design for marriage is a life-long commitment of self-sacrificial love
[09:57]Marriage is about showing the world God’s love… together.
[13:20] If our hearts are transformed by Jesus then his commands about divorce will rarely be needed.
[13:53] Divorce is never “good” but it can be necessary.
[14:52] A broken marriage is a picture of our broken humanity.
[16:03] The relationship God offers us through Jesus is everything that is right with marriage and more.
[19:28] Jesus’ commitment to us empowers us to be committed to each other.

[16:46] Accept God’s unending commitment to you.
Read 1 Corinthians 13 vv.4-7
[17:25] Accept and acknowledge our brokenness.
[17:46] Allow God’s Holy Spirit to work in you and transform you.
