BEFORE & AFTER
WEEK 1 - MAY 8, 2016
"the spirit changes...family"
ephesians 5:18-21; 6:1-4
Reaching our potential as parents, balancing: not exasperating them and disciplining and teaching them takes Spirit-filled parents. It requires me having a real relationship with God the Holy Spirit, talking with Him, asking Him for help, and trusting His power to balance truth and grace in my home and keep our priorities straight.
WEEK 2 - MAY 15, 2016
"THE SPIRIT CHANGES...MARRIAGE"
We ought to be reminded today that the gospel is meant to take root in our homes, not just in our heads. When the Holy Spirit enters the home, the relationship between husband and wife transforms from adversary to ally. When the Holy Spirit enters the home, the relationship between the husband and wife isn’t just about personal fulfillment, but instead gospel reenactment.
WEEK 3 - MAY 22, 2016
"THE SPIRIT CHANGES...conflict"
Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life.
God the Holy Spirit will help place this armor on your mind & across your chest…to protect your thoughts & your heart. He’ll change the way you do conflict, and He’ll guide you to wear your armor well so that you may stand & walk in the newness of life.
WEEK 4 - MAY 29, 2016
"THE SPIRIT CHANGES...Work"
God (who's a worker) made humanity in His image (as workers) and Adam and Eve were working in the garden of Eden...and everything was really good. THEN SIN. Sin did to work what it did to communication and to relationships. Sin damaged work. Paul is telling us that the Holy Spirit can change it back; He can make it beautiful and glorious again!
