How hard is it to love someone you care deeply for perfectly the way Jesus loved? It’s not easy. Broken marriages are proof of this and it breaks my heart. Love is not a feeling…it’s a choice, an action. It’s who God is to us and it’s the way we should live towards each other. Tears literally flow to my eyes now as I’m touched with the way He loves and at the same time with the way we consistently fail at it.
Jesus teach us how to love! ‘Us’ as a nation, ‘us’ as the human race, ‘us’ as believers, ‘us’ as couples bound by the sacred covenant of marriage.
Jesus, teach us how to love.
“Dear friends, I am not writing a new commandment for you; rather it is an old one you have had from the very beginning. This old commandment-to love one another-is the same message you heard before. Yet it is also new. Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining.” 1 John 2:7-8
