Love that last
Let’s face it sometimes love that last seems like a fairytale. But it’s not if we understand what love is. Love is not a feeling. Feelings fade but love shouldn’t. Love is sacrifice, endurance, and sometimes a lot of work. It’s no secret that most marriages fail. Culture is against you. Culture tells you that you can fall in and out of love. This is a lie. Love is not something that you can simply fall into and out of. My wife and I have been married now for 20 years. Does that mean we always get along? Of course not. We are human. We fail each other sometimes but love, real love is what has kept us together. We sacrifice for each other and we compromise for each other. Biblical love teaches that we treat each other like we would like to be treated. Biblical love means that we sacrifice for each other. God loved His creation so much that He made a great sacrifice for us. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. Sometimes love means that we have to bear with each other. My wife doesn’t like my passion for hunting but she bears with me because she loves me. Ephesians 4:2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,…. Biblical love is patient. Ephesians 4:2-3 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
I believe to have a marriage that beats the odds you must as newly weds have a good foundation. Jesus is that foundation. Jesus is not popular in our culture and society today. Actually He said that the world would hate you because of Him. We are seeing that today. Christ has to be the center of your marriage if you want a successful, happy marriage. Love that last is not just a fairytale it was invented by God for our enjoyment.
