Episode Info

Episode Info: The Bible has a lot to say about functioning in vibrant relationships. While the song by Casting Crowns, "Broken Together" speaks of a couple dealing with brokenness in marriage, we will use it to uncover some gems that will help us in ALL of our relationships. Great relationships (especially great marriages) don't "just happen." Allowing Scripture to define how we should treat one another is definitely the way to go! Along with the podcast I've created a resource to challenge you to "one up" those most important to you. Check it out! On this episode I discuss: Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture - this week's Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include: Explore a topic Follow the cross reference Ask questions The "mystery" of marriage - Ephesians 5:31 The Bible interaction tool of chasing down cross references Marriage is an illustration of Christ and the church The cross reference mentioned in Ephesians 5:31 that leads us to Genesis 2:24 Asking questions like "what explains why" and reading Genesis 2:18-24 to discover the answer Finding a wife is a good thing - Proverbs 18:22 Be sure to partner with fellow Christ followers in your most intimate relationships - 2 Corinthians 6:14-16 What happens if you are married to a non-believer?
