Rekindling the Flame of Your Love

Ken Harrell

Senior Pastor

Standing at the altar, no one thinks their love is going to come to an end. But as time goes by, it becomes clear that those feelings of love don’t just naturally last. It takes work… every… single… day.

Notes

Key Scripture

Leviticus 6:8–13

Discussion Questions

Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group, or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.

  1. As you think about your marriage today, where do YOU (not your spouse) need to make changes to improve your love for each other? In light of what the Lord has impressed upon you through the message on Sunday, what do you need to seek forgiveness for?
  2. In Song of Solomon 1:15–16, Solomon showers his wife with praise and adoration. Husbands, how does this example relate to what we’re called to do in Ephesians 5:25–29? What does it look like to live out this direction from the Lord?
  3. Read Ephesians 5:30–32. Paul uses the marriage relationship as a metaphor for the connection between Christ and the church. Based on this knowledge, why is it crucial to have a successful, God-honoring marriage? How do our marriages exemplify our faith to our children and the outside world?
  4. Pastor mentioned four things in Song of Solomon to rekindle the flame. Those include talking/communication, time together, physical touch, and being thoughtful. Which of these challenges you to be a better spouse?
  5. It doesn’t do any good to learn how to rekindle our love… even if it’s by digging into God’s Word… if we aren’t fully committed to applying what we’ve learned. Many of us already know what our marriage needs for our love to grow for one another. What are those things, and what’s keeping you from taking action?
  6. Read Ecclesiastes 4:12. A threefold cord is not quickly broken. Discuss what this means with your life group. How can you keep God at the center of your marriage? What practical steps can you take this week towards this?
  7. Jeris gave a powerful testimony at the beginning of service. It was a reminder that marriage, and our individual lives, should be centered on Christ. If you’re not yet married, how did her testimony encourage you to remain focused on things above while patiently trusting in His sovereign and perfect plan for your life?
  8. Aside from your decision to follow Christ, the most important decision you will make in this lifetime is whom you choose to marry. Why is this the case? What can you do if you have already married someone who is not saved or not actively following after Christ?

Accountability

  • Where are you reading in the Bible this week? What has God been revealing to you through your quiet time with Him?
  • Discuss any struggles you may be going through with your group.
  • How can you pray for your group this week? How can they be praying for you?
