Cross Church Notes: Love Handles

Week 1

How assumptions work

  1. Assumptions affect our decisions.
  2. Assumptions are invisible to you.

A cultural assumption that affects our relationships is the assumption that relationships should make us happy.

Truths about happiness

  1. Happiness is a moving target.
  2. Happiness is in conflict with itself.
  3. Happiness is getting your way.
  4. Happiness is not a destination.
  5. Happiness is not love.

It’s the very pursuit of happiness that thwarts happiness.

There’s relationships, some for reasons, some for seasons, and some for lifetimes.

Submitting means having a voluntary attitude of giving in, cooperating, assuming responsibility, and carrying a burden.

Which will you apply?

  1. Voluntary attitude of giving
  2. Cooperating
  3. Assuming responsibility
  4. Carrying a burden

What if we honored people in our lives as if they never did wrong?

If you want change in your relationship, you can’t change what they’re gonna do. The one thing I can change, is me.

Week 2

What if God intended relationships to make us Holy, not to make us happy?

You’re be more successful in your relationships when you’re coming from a place of fulfillment not for fulfillment.

Your single season should be

  1. Healthy
  2. Fruitful
  3. Intentional
  4. Pure
