MEMORY VERSE:

  • “I am the vine ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” – John 15:5

 

 

 

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

1 Cor. 3: 5-10

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

As believers, we are co-labourers with God. We need God in the business and God needs us, but we need God more than He needs us. May the grace to make ourselves more available in partnership be given to us as we study at His feet in Jesus’ Name.

 

 

 

 

 

OUTLINE
1. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES
2. THE ROLE OF THE HUSBAND AND THE WIFE IN PARTNERSHIP

 

 

 

 

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES
God is the vine and we are the branches. The vine needs the branches and the branches need the vine more. You need God and God needs you, but you need God more than He needs you. God is the Creator of Heaven and the Earth. God can do well without you but without God you can do nothing – John 15:5. God, in His supremacy, with all His power and might, is faithful in playing His part and in the keeping of His covenant – Num. 23 : 19; Ps. 62:11.

 

 

 

 

 

So, for you to enjoy the maximum benefit of the relationship, you must be:
1. Saved – John 3 : 3 – 5.
2. Faithful – Heb . 11: 6.
3. Holy – Heb. 12:14.
4. Obedient – Is. 1:19.
5. A cheerful giver – 2 Cor. 9: 7.

 

 

 

 

 

THE ROLE OF THE HUSBAND AND THE WIFE IN PARTNERSHIP
God instituted marriage for a purpose but it takes the effort of both the man and the woman for the marriage to work. Both of them must work towards a common goal. An excellent example is procreation. This is virtually impossible except a man and a woman come together for this common purpose. Then, God will now shower His blessings on them – Gen. 1:22; 1 Cor. 3: 6; Amos 3:3.

 

 

 

 

 

HUSBAND’S ROLES
He is the human head of the family – Eph. 5: 25-33.
He must be able to rule his family well – Col. 3:20.
He must love his wife- Eph. 5 : 25.
He is the priest of the family. He must establish and direct the family altar – Eph. 6:4; Col. 3:20-21.

 

 

 

 

 

WIFE’S ROLES
She must be a good help meet to her husband – Eph. 5:22-24.
She must love and respect her husband.
She must be submissive to her husband.
She must adorn herself with holiness and sobriety.

 

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
In partnership, there is need for team work with one goal, one vision and one purpose since both the husband and the wife are God’s representatives on earth. The day of accountability is coming, so, they must sacrifice everything possible to keep the relationship together in unity of purpose and with one spirit, all to the glory of God and their own blessing.

  1. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

    2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

    3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

    4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

    5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

    6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

    7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

    8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

    9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

    10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

    11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

    12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

    13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

    14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

    15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

    16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

    17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.

    18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

    19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

    20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

    21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

    22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

    23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

    24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

    25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

    26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

    27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

    28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

    29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

    30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

    31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

    32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

    33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

    34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

    35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

    36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

    37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

    38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

    39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

    40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
