They smile, they laugh, they come back to church the next week and everything’s fine. No, mother’s day the sermon has to be how special they are; how much we love them; how much we need them.
So you can send email to that address to get questions put on there or what you can do if you’d like a question answered immediately, you can send a text message to that address (I know everyone here is high-tech) and it’ll pop up here.
Now, I’m not going to answer every question that appears because some of them may be off-topic or some of them may be a whole different thing, but you can ask your question and at least I’ll include it when I do the Q&A at the end and who knows, if it’s something that can bring clarity to our discussion today I may answer it right now.
Now I don’t want to see people texting the whole time okay?
I don’t wamt to see lots of commotion and stuff like that, if you have “a” question (that’s why the address is LLQuestion not Question(s)…if you have a question that you want clarity on, you can ask a short, brief question.
Okay, on to our topic for today….”Rebels with a cause.” Last week we looked at the guys and what the guys need to do to get inshape and today we’re going to look at what the girls need to do to get in shape and to prepare themselves for the most important relationship in their life which is the marriage relationship.
Now, I know what most of you are thinking, look here, I can read the single girls’ minds.
Guys, you know what every single girl is thinking right now?? They’re thinking right now, “this is going to be a short talk because the problem ain’t us!
This is going to be a very short session, because the problem abouna Anthony is not us!! ” There’s no good guys, everyone thinks this, “we have tons of great girls but not enough good guys.” This isn’t just here, this is in other churches that I go to.
It’s good to have so many new faces with us today, if you are just joining us today or you’ve been here for awhile, you’ll know that we’re in the middle of a series we’ve been calling “Real Dating.” And what we’ve been looking at in this series is kind of God’s advice and God’s directive when it comes to the whole dating and relationships which ofcourse would lead us to marriage one day.
So what we’ve been looking at we said at the very very beginning of this series to catch some of you up to speed, we said that in order to be happy in life and to find fulfillment in life, you’ll never ever be happy and find true happiness unless you find “The One.” And if you’re searching for the one, you can never be happy until you find that “One”, but then we said that “the One”, is not a girl or a boy or a cute or a this or a that, “The One” is really our Lord Jesus Christ and if you haven’t found him then that’s the first love relationship that you must have and if you don’t have that, none of the other relationships that you have, no matter how good they are, no matter how cute she is, no matter how witty he is isn’t going to make any difference because unless it’s built on the foundation of your relationship with God Almighty, it will never be successful.
Then the next week we looked at, okay, so if God is “The One,” and we know how to find “the One,” we talked about how to find the “Two,” how to find that spouse and we talked about some of the principles God has laid for us in his word and we said how the world has certain standards of how you find “the Two” but God has higher standards.
