I. Building a marriage on the right foundation

A. When we build our marriage on a foundation of sin 

Ephesians 5:3 - Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.

Nobody plans to destroy their marriage, damage their kids, and ruin the testimony of the gospel.
It happens though. It happens because we play around with things that infect us.
Sexual immorality, impurity and greed are what I categorize as a infection sin. If you don’t get it all it grows.

WHO’S THE ONE?

GOD IS YOUR ONE AND YOUR SPOUSE IS YOUR TWO.

Matthew 22:37-39 - You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.
