Sunday 15th September, 2019: Marriage that fulfills purpose: Return to your first love
Our Sub-theme for the month of September is Walking in His Steps: Purpose Driven Relationship (Jn. 13:14). The relationship between Christ and His disciples was that of master-servant relationship or leader-follower relationship. However what we saw most of the time practically is friend-friend relationship. This is because His relationship was purposeful. He was not only concerned about the relationship that existed between him and the twelve, but also the impact it would have on the future relationship between Christ and future believers; the twelve and other future believers and the relationships among future believers. Consequently the bond between the twelve and Christ Jesus was never broken.
Today the bond in some of our relationships have been weakened, cracked or broken. Our worship today seeks to heal and strengthen the bond in our relationships as we call on couples to return to their first love in marriage.
