“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son…” (John 3:16)
God expressed His love towards us fully and without reservation or hesitation and Jesus’ love was shown in His obedient submission to the will of the Father. Their love was expressed without any requirement on the receiver’s behalf.
The Bible, in Ephesians 5, shows us that a properly functioning marriage relationship is a snapshot of right love in action. This is exemplifying the relationship between Christ and His Bride…the Church. This love flows from Father God to His son Jesus to us, His Church. Wow, what an expression of Love!
So, my friend, whenever you think of whether your spouse is deserving of the love you give. Stop, take a moment and ask yourself if you were deserving of the expression of God’s Love in the sacrifice of Jesus. Just a thought on this Marriage Monday.Have Faith1st ©2014 Faith1st Ministries
