    Asking the Grizzly Questions

    Asking the Grizzly Questions

    "Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart." -1 Peter 1:22 (NIV)

    If you want to have a dating relationship that turns into a marriage that lasts, you have to put in the work! This week, Pastor Denny breaks down 4 different things that we can do to make your love last.

    Four Things to Make Love Last:

    In order to have a lasting marriage, you need to hear with all your heart. Be quick to listen in your marriage!

    "So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath." -James 1:19 (NKJV)

    Make time to listen to and hear one another.

    The second thing we can do to form a lasting marriage is to forgive with all your heart. The only way you were going to have the power to forgive someone else is to understand how Jesus forgave you.

    "Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God." - Romans 15:7 (NIV)

    "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you." -Ephesians 4:32 (NIV)

    3.) Next, you need to be humble with all your heart. Scripture says, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves." -Philippians 2:3 (NASB) It's important to see how God values you, because it's easier to consider someone else as important as well.

    Humility is the engine that drives unselfishness.

    Finally, the key to having a lasting marriage is to love God with all your heart. Make Jesus number one before you find your number two.

    Do what Jesus told us to do:
    "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength." -Mark 12:30 (NIV)

    To close, we wanted to include some questions whether you're dating or married to ask your significant other this week. We hope these questions challenge you and your relationship!

    Questions to Ask When Dating:
    1. What was the best part of your childhood?
    2. What was the most traumatic thing that happened to you?
    3. What was your first job and how long were you there?
    4. What is your current job and what do you like about it?
    5. What is the most expensive item you've purchased?
    6. Where would you go if you could go anywhere?
    7. How many kids would you like to have?
    8. What is your favorite pastime?
    9. What's the one thing you can't live without?
    10. What kind of food do you like and do you cook?

    Questions to Ask When Married:
    1. What did you want to be when you grew up?
    2. How do you feel about education?
    3. What kind of activities did you enjoy as a kid?
    4. When did your family consider you an adult?
    5. What was your favorite book or movie as a kid?
    6. If you could have a super power what would it be?
    7. What's the best thing about our home? What is one thing you would change?
    8. What is the best strength of our marriage?
    9. How would you like to see our marriage grow in the next year?
    10. What can I do or not do to help you feel fulfilled?

    Happy Camper

    This week, we continue on our series on marriage. If you want to grow in your marriage, we encourage you to dive into God's Word, develop your prayer life, and commit yourself to your church community.

    "The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. 24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”-Genesis 2:18, 24

    1. Stay Alert
    2. Stay Together
    3. Stay Equipped

    "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." -2 Corinthians 10:3-5

    **Choosing** the right person is part of it,
    but **becoming** the right person is the other part of it!

    1. God's Word
    **The Word Prepares You**
    "For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." -Hebrews 4:12
    **The Word Purifies You**
    "How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. 10 I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. 11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." -Psalm 119:9 - 11

    **The Word Protects You**
    Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. -Provers 4:14

    **The Word Prospers You**
    Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. -Psalm 1:1-3

    2. Prayer
    **Prayer doesn’t prepare you for battle. It is the battle.**
    The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. -Isaiah 58: 8 - 11

    3. Body of Christ
    "They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles."
    -Acts 2:42 - 43
