Love and Marriage, pt 4

“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, and I made plans like a child. When I became a man, I stopped those childish ways. It is the same with us. Now we see God as if we are looking at a reflection in a mirror. But then, in the future, we will see him right before our eyes. Now I know only a part, but at that time I will know fully, as God has known me.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:11-12‬ ‭ERV‬‬

We are grown ups now, no more playing around in any of our relationships and especially our marriages. We are all on a journey to find our place in the kingdom, our place in society and our place in our homes. We have to look to God to help us define ourselves in life. We have to look to God to define who we are in our marriage and our homes. We have to start being Faith, we have to start being Grace, we have to start being Love!

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth. Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭ERV‬‬

“My purpose in telling you to do this is to promote love—the kind of love shown by those whose thoughts are pure, who do what they know is right, and whose faith in God is real.”

‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭ERV‬‬

“Together with these things, the most important part of your new life is to love each other. Love is what holds everything together in perfect unity.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:14‬ ‭ERV‬‬

One thought on “Love and Marriage, pt 4

  1. Just started a series teaching on Love. The Agape love you just described is the same kind of love that God loves is with. Just meditate on patience for a moment … While we were in our mess–rebellious, stubborn, ‘me first’ attitude, ‘I got this’ attitude, etc., God had patience, or longsuffering.
    An excellent 37-page book by Henry Drummond called, “The Greatest Thing In The World” is such a beautiful exposition on 1Corinthians 13.
    Keep up the good work!
