SERMON TITLE: This is Us!
2 Corinthians 4:1
A Letter from satan for Families
A Word for the Family.
Men: You are the PRIMARY of your Family, but you are NOT the PRIORITY IN your FAMILY.
- You are CAPABLE like Adam; God made you in HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS.
- You are ACCOUNTABLE like Adam; God meets with YOU EVERY DAY.
- You are RESPONSIBLE like Adam; God gave you an assignment to dress your garden.
- You have SUSTAINABILITY like Adam; God gave you the assignment to keep the garden.
It was only GOOD but Not GREAT till SHE came!!!
Women: You are HELPER to your FAMILY, but you should NOT be the HINDERER of your FAMILY.
- You are ESSENTIAL like EVE; Adam NEEDS YOU and YOU are a part of HIM.
- You are EFFECTIVE like EVE; Adam can’t do it without your HELP.
- You are EXCELLENT like EVE; Adam has NEVER seen anybody like you.
- You are ETERNAL like EVE; all life birthed through man comes from you.
Because GOD knew that Satan would drive a wedge in the FAMILY through the marriage,
He gave Moses, the writer of Genesis, these words. Genesis 1:26-28
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over [g]all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that [h]moves on the earth.”
What happened? Who changed the recipe?

A Family that does not WORK together.

A Family that does not LISTEN to each other.
