I appreciate so much your positive reactions to the lessons on Love and Respect. We are discussing real life. We all want and pray for healthier family connections. The Bible touches our lives where we need it the most. It is not surprising since God is speaking to us through his word. He knows what we need and He loves us so much. I hope you will spend time studying His word each day that it is humanly possible
We want to offer a special welcome to all of our visitors. You will always find a warm welcome here. We hope and pray that our Bible study and worship time together will draw you closer to God. If we can be of assistance to you please let us know and we will do the best that we can to help you. When you can we hope that you will come back and worship with us.
Today, our lesson is entitled: Enjoy Win-Win Communication on the Energizing Cycle for Men. In Ephesians 5:33, Paul is clearly saying that wives need love, while husbands need respect. This is not to say that husbands don’t want love or wives don’t want respect, but this passage deals with the primary needs of both husband and wife. Today, we want to consider how men can demonstrate love to their wives. Remember the energizing cycle is when the husband shows the wife love and the wife then shows the husband respect. How much better is The Energizing Cycle versus The Crazy Cycle! Many of these principles apply not only to husband and wife, but to parents and children as well.
Our Care Groups will be meeting today. We now have four care groups that are meeting this afternoon or evening. I hope you will make plans to attend one of the groups. Our new Care Group is meeting at the church building at 6 p.m. and it will be taught by Jerry Cardwell. The times and places for our Care Groups are posted elsewhere in the bulletin and will be announced on Sunday morning.
I hope you can stay after our worship time together and join us for our monthly potluck. It is always a time of great food and great fellowship.
I love you with the love of the Lord. Bob
