Men and Marraige

1 Corinthians 13:11 says, "When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways."In the third message from the Real Marriage series at Elevation Church, Pastor Mark Driscoll challenged men to be responsible men of the gospel in marriage and in life. It is a challenging sermon within in a day and age of young men who wish to act like Peter Pan wanting to prolong boyish behaviour and neglect the joys of being a man.  http://marshill.com/media/real-marriage/men-and-marriage  is the link that will allow you to watch and listen to this message. The questions you can ask yourself and spouse is, 'how are you doing?' Where are you when it comes to the priorities of being a Godly man in marriage or life in general? For those who are single, perhaps a couple good follow up questions are how is my masculinity honoring to Jesus? And how am I maturing in being a man ready for marriage. We hope you will join us this next week at Elevation, as we look toward the next message in this series entitled The Respectful Wife.

Friends with Benefits

Elevation Church hosted the second sermon in a series of messages from the Real Marriage Campaign this last Sunday. I have to say it has been very refreshing and those who have attended Elevation have been blessed to receive practical, meaningful, and gospel loaded sermons for married and singles alike.
As Pastor Mark put it with Friends with Benefits message; that with all the places you can start with in marriage to improve and grow in, the friendship should be both the place to start and deepen. If you have not had a chance to check it out please click on this link, http://marshill.com/media/real-marriage/friend-with-benefits
We hope you will join us for worship and the continuation of Real Marriage series this weekend. Service times are 9am, 10:45am, and 6pm. Please contact our website for more details. www.el-church.com.
Finally, I would like to leave you with a super illustration of two friends who compete at a high level, and just finished running the Boston Marathon. Their story http://racing.teamsoares.com/2012/04/116th-boston-marathon-troy-robin.html is certainly a wonderful support to completing the race of being friends in marriage who truly seek to journey with each other till the very end. Troy and Robin are members at Elevation and actively help minister in FCA and lead a community Life Group in the So. Auburn area.
