Passion: Week Three

In the third installment of the “Passion” series, Pastor Andrew Zemianek speaks about the power in being single. The culture of today’s society is that we need to test drive the relationship before we take it the step of marriage. However, the statistics from the US attorney’s office point to a higher divorce rate in couples that lived together prior to getting married. If your desire is to get married, as the bible explains in 1 Corinthians 7, it should come from passion. God ordained marriage and the expression of sexual desires within that covenant. But entering into a passionless relationship purely because you feel that was the natural progression of the relationship will only end in derision. You cannot truly express your passions in life if you’re fearful of losing a relationship. There will never be a perfect relationship, but we have a perfect Savior who can help us attain the passions He has put in us. The true goal of marriage is to find someone who will stand beside you and spur you on toward those God-ordained passions while stoking the flames of the passion within your relationship.
