LESSON INTRODUCTION:
Love is a fundamental characteristics of who God is. 1 John 4:7-8. Everything God does is prompted and influenced by His love. The Bible uses several different words for “love” in the Hebrew and Greek, interchanging them depending on context. Some of these word’s mean “affectionate love”; others indicate “friendship”; and still others, “erotic/sexual love” as we “sacrificial/charitable love”.

TEXT REVIEW: 1 Corinthians 7:2-5
Apostle Paul gave three (3) instructions to believers on marriage between verses 2-5. These instructions are stated below:
i. Let every man or woman get his own wife and her own husband. 1 Cor. 7:2.
ii. Let the husband and wife render due benevolence to one another. 1 Cor. 7:3
iii. Let the husband and wife defraud not one another.

What are the reasons behind these instructions?
i. You marry to avoid formication. 1 Cor. 7:2

Other guides for lasting marriage from the Bible passages are:

i. Give yourself to fasting and prayers. Vs. 5b.
ii. Surrender your power to one another. Vs. 4. Power here means exclusive authority and control over his or her body. This authority should be surrender to one another in love.
