King Solomon teaches many valuable lessons about love and romance in the marriage relationship. We learn from him that love is pure, love protects and love is passionate. In the marriage relationship, God portrays the intimacy that He wants to have with us. The divine romance is Christ laying down His life for His bride, the church.

Topic: End Times
God directed you to this sermon, I believe, so that you would know, first, that you don't have to die, and, second, so that you would know that Jesus, who makes this promise to you, is God, the God of Israel, the God of all. And, third, you are here because God wants you to see the implication for your life of knowing you will not die. By John Piper. ©2013 Desiring God...

There's no place for this nonsense in the church, no place for this nonsense in the kingdom of God.We can celebrate our unique cultural backgrounds. The book of Revelation says that on that day we'll throw those crowns down at his feet and we'll worship together. Our community should be marked by crossing lines of color, socioeconomic status, and cultural diversity.

Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-32
Topic: Conflict Resolution
Marriage and sexuality point to our deep longing for union with God. The way God loves us is the way that romantic love should be expressed among us:free-God chose you; total-all of you; faithful-forever, without condition; and fruitful-producing life out of you for others. The purpose of sexual union gives us a picture, a hint of glory, ecstasy, of heaven.
