Functionally DYSfunctional: Week 4

FAMILY: Functionally DYSfunctional

Week 4: Uniquely Different

Genesis 1:27, Ephesians 5:21-33

So God created human beings in his own image.

In the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

God’s original design:

Man and Woman are created as equals in value.

Man and Woman are created with uniquely different roles.

God’s design:

Woman would be a confident helper for her husband. (life-giver)

Sinful distortion:

Woman became an insecure partner with a desire for control.

Ladies…

Where do you get your identity? 

What story do you believe about yourself?

God’s design:

Man would take responsibility and lead his wife.

Sinful distortion:

Man became a prideful coward with a desire to rule.

Men..

Are you taking responsibility for your life?

Are you leading your family?

(INSERT TRIANGLE SLIDE)

And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21

So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5:31-33
