A Marriage Pre-Requisite Sermon
You know it…I know it….some women marry losers. Not that they are not valuable in God’s eyes, not that they don’t have potential…but for a variety of reasons, they just don’t reach for that potential or they become mean. For a woman who is stuck with such a man, life can be far less than it could be.
So how could a woman marrying such a man? How can a man take steps not to be such a man?
One easy way is to listen to this amazing sermon by Mark Driscoll. (Click here) Here Mark Outlines the major types of “loser guys” – with ways to avoid them, and practical, loving steps towards becoming a more mature man who better models Christ.
A word of warning: Driscoll communicates with all the subtlety of a 2/4. He is not being harsh just for the fun or being right, however: he believes (based on 1 Peter 3:7) that men are different from women. In his words “women are delicate wine-glasses. I would not be speaking like this at a ladies retreat. However, men are like a thermos: you can knock them around a bit. In fact, sometimes that is the only way to get through to them.” Well said.
For those who can handle some hard, pure truth on the topic of “what is it to be a man,” I highly recommend this sermon.
For an as-yet unmarried woman – this sermon may just save you from the worst mistake of your life!
