“Bringing Spicy Back”

“Bringing Spicy Back”

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A MARRIAGE THAT’S LOST THE SPICY TO ACTUALLY BECOME SPICY AGAIN?

4 ways to maintain the spice or bring Spicy back!

1. Remember LOVE NEVER FAILS! 1Cor 13:4-8

· LOVE – GOD’S LOVE IS THE SPICE OF ANY GOOD RELATIONSHIP, INCLUDING MARRIAGE.

YOU WILL NEVER FIND HAPPINESS ON A ROAD NAMED SELFISHNESS!

2. Remember your COVENANT.

A COVENANT IS MADE OF UP TWO “CHAMBERS,” LIKE A HEART.
THE LEFT ONE IS THE “LEGAL” PART OF MARRIAGE. IT IS A CONTRACT.

THE RIGHT ONE IS STEADFAST LOVE OR “LOYALTY.”

WE NEED TO GET BOTH CHAMBERS PUMPING:

3. Remember to FORGIVE. Luke 17:4 70×7

YOUR COVENANT MARRIAGE PARTNER WILL GIVE YOU ABUNDANT OPPORTUNITIES TO FORGIVE!

GOD SPOKE HIS COVENANT NAME TO MOSES: “THE LORD, FULL OF COMPASSION AND GRACE, SLOW TO ANGER, AND ABOUNDING IN COVENANT LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS.”

4. Remember to FORGET. Phil 3:13 “Put out of mind”
AFTER JOSEPHS RELEASE, HE MARRIED AND THEN NAMED HIS FIRST CHILD, “MANASSEH”: “MADE TO FORGET.”

ASK GOD TO HELP YOU FORGET IN THESE 3 AREAS:
1. MEMORIES—ALL THE RETAINED MEMORIES THAT YOU HOLD ONTO IN YOUR MIND:

2. WORDS—ALL THE FIGHTS, THE ARGUMENTS, AND THE ANGER MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE CROSS OF CHRIST TO BE TRULY FORGIVEN.

3. SECRETS—SECRET HABITS, SECRET ADDICTIONS, SECRET PORNOGRAPHY, SECRETS AFFAIRS, SECRET ATTACHMENTS, SECRET FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS.
