Creating Healthy Boundaries in our Relationships Life Series part 3 of 5

  1. 1. With From Preaching of Tim Keller Gospel and Idolatry Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend Life Series Part 3 of 5
  2. 2. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING  Our actions have consequences. Someone will bear them.  Don’t interrupt this law by regularly bailing others out.
  3. 3. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” - Galatians 6:7–8
  4. 4. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING Proverbs 9:8 tells us that it is worthless to confront irresponsible people. Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
  5. 5. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING The law of sowing and reaping is more easily identifiable in the functional part of a marriage, because the tasks are more concrete: paying bills, cooking meals, keeping the house, etc.
  6. 6. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING If you reap the discomfort of your spouse’s careless housekeeping, this will be quite obvious. It is more tricky in the relational part, which involves the emotional tie between husband and wife: how deeply connected they are and how they feel about each other – positively and negatively.
  7. 7. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING But the spouse who carries the consequences is the only one who can change that. She can’t change her spouse, but she can change the fact that she is the only one who facing the effects of his irresponsibility.
  8. 8. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING By setting appropriate boundaries – which ranges from mentioning how much this behaviour hurts her, all the way to setting a clear limit on (her exposure to) it
  9. 9. 1. THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING – the law of sowing and reaping will be reestablished in the way it was intended to be and eventually lead to growth in the relationship.
  10. 10. 2. The Law of Responsibility We are responsible to, not for each other. We are to love one another, not be one another.
  11. 11. 2. The Law of Responsibility Galatians 5:13– 14 reminds us that we should use our freedom in Christ to develop genuine love for “our neighbors”. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
  12. 12. 2. The Law of Responsibility Jesus challenges us to love one another as he has loved us. Anytime we do not love others, we do not live up to our responsibilities.
  13. 13. 2. The Law of Responsibility But problems arise when our understanding of responsibility gets confused. We are to love one another, not be one another. We can’t feel the feelings of our wives. We can’s think the thoughts of our husbands. We can’t behave for our children. We can’t grow for others – only they can. Likewise others can’t grow for us – only we can.
  14. 14. 2. The Law of Responsibility “We have to continue to work out our own salvation ... for it is God who works in us to will and act according to his good purpose.” (Philippians 2:12–13).” No one can do that for us. We are responsible for ourselves . . . and others are responsible for themselves.
  15. 15. 2. The Law of Responsibility In a marriage this means that we have to distinguish between our responsibility to our spouse and her responsibility for herself. This means we have to support each other in carrying the heavy burdens of life (Galatians 6:2) such as health problems, emotional crises, financial burdens, raising children, and the workload that is necessary to keep the family running.
  16. 16. 2. The Law of Responsibility On the other hand we cannot take over the responsibility for our spouse’s feelings, attitudes, values, and her handling of life’s daily little difficulties. We may help each other, but each person must take care of his and her daily loads. (Galatians 6:5).
  17. 17. 3. The Law of Power We do not have power over other people We hardly have enough power over ourselves
  18. 18. 4. The Law of Respect If we wish our boundaries to be respected we must respect those of others For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
  19. 19. 5. The Law of Motivation We must be free to say no before we can wholeheartedly say yes. “Acts of love” are worthless if we don’t feel to have a choice.
  20. 20. 6. The Law of Evaluation We need to evaluate the effects our boundaries cause others. Hurt and harm are not the same – pain may eventually lead to growth.
  21. 21. 6. The Law of Evaluation Scripture Reference Hebrews 12:11
  22. 22. 6. The Law of Evaluation  Scripture Reference Hebrews 12:11 “Habang tayo ay itinutuwid, hindi tayo natutuwa kindi naghihinagpis, ngunit pagkatapos niyon, mararanasan natin ang kapayapaang bunga ng pagsasa matuwid na buhay.”
  23. 23. 6. The Law of Evaluation Scripture Reference “ Di pansin ng mangmang ang turo ng kanyang ama, ngunit dinirinig ng may isip ang paalalala sa kanya.” Proverbs 15:5
  24. 24. 6. The Law of Evaluation Scripture Reference “Kung may kasalanan sa iyo ang kapatid mo, puntahan mo siya at kausapin nang sarilinan tungkol sa kanyang kamalian. Kapag nakinig sya sa iyo, naibalik mo na - Matthew 18:15-17
  25. 25. 6. The Law of Evaluation Scripture Reference Ang inyong pinagsamahan. Matthew 18:15-17
  26. 26. 7. The Law of Proactivity Boundaries must express what you stand for , not just what you are against Solve problems on the basis of your values, wants, and needs
  27. 27. 7. The Law of Proactivity Proactive means freely choosing to love, to enjoy and serve one another. Reactive means letting someone else define and direct who we are and what we do.
  28. 28. 7. The Law of Proactivity “Ngunit salamat sa Diyos, kayong dating mga alipin sa kasalan, hindi kayo saklaw ng katuwiran.” -Romans 16:7
  29. 29. 8. The Law of Envy We will never get what we want if we focus on what others have. Envy keeps us empty and unfulfilled.
  30. 30. 8. The Law of Envy Envy is seeing the good as that which we do not have. “Ang pagpapatawad sa kapwa ay nagpapasarap sa samahan, ngunit ang pagkakalat ng kahinaan ay sumisira sa pagkakaibigan.” - Prov. 17:9
  31. 31. 9. The Law of Activity We need to take the initiative to solve our problems. Don’t wait for your spouse to go the first step.
  32. 32. 9. The Law of Activity Boundaries are created in our lives when we do something. We must take the initiative and accept the responsibility of our feelings, attitudes, and behaviors.
  33. 33. 9. The Law of Activity Matthew 14:22-33
  34. 34. 10. The Law of Exposure Matthew 5:6
  35. 35. 10. The Law of Exposure “Ang lahat ng nalalantad sa liwanag ay nakikilala kano talaga ang mga iyon at nalalantad sa liwanag “Kaya’t sinasabi Gumising ka, ikaw na natutulog, bumangon ka mula sa libingan at liliwanagin ka ni Cristo.” -Ephesians 5:13-14

  67. 67. The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer Why We Must Think Rightly About God?
  68. 68. The low view of God entertained almost universally among Christians is the cause of a hundred lesser evils everywhere among us. A whole new philosophy of the Christian life has resulted from this one basic error in our religious thinking. - The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
  69. 69. With our loss of the sense of majesty has come the further loss of religious awe and consciousness of the divine Presence. We have lost our spirit of worship and our ability to withdraw inwardly to meet God in adoring silence. - The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
  70. 70. Modern Christianity is simply not producing the kind of Christian who can appreciate or experience the life in the Spirit. The words, “Be still, and know that I am God,” mean next to nothing to the self confident, bustling worshipper in this middle period of the twentieth century. - The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
  71. 71. The heaviest obligation lying upon the Christian Church today is to purify and elevate her concept of God until it is once more worthy of Him - and of her. In all her prayers and labors this should have first place. - The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
  72. 72. We do the greatest service to the next generation of Christians by passing on to them undimmed and undiminished that noble concept of God which we received from our Hebrew and Christian fathers of generations past. This will prove of greater value to them than anything that art or science can devise. - The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
