This one verse in God’s Word, the Bible, speaks volumes. If this was the only verse a person committed to memory and held close to their heart, it would be enough. It tells the whole story – encompasses every key component necessary to obtain Salvation. Whoever believe in Christ… bow, let Christ know that you believe that He died on the cross for your sins and that you need Him every day of your life… and He will not let you perish but He will give you eternal life. It’s not what we deserve, but it’s how good our God is.
We think we know what love is. A little over a month ago, we celebrated love on Valentine’s Day. Have you offered to die for your loved ones? Me neither. Have you willingly sacrificed your life for them? No – me neither. Christ died so that we could be saved from hell. He’s the only One worthy of all our praise.
It’s an amazing miracle when two people meet and have this belief in common. They know what Christ did for them as individuals – but when the two combine their beliefs and allow Christ to be in the center of their love… that is really something special and it’s such a blessed union. The most wonderful gift a union like that can give is a faithful prayer life – Christian husbands and wives praying for one another.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to remember that verse in Ecclesiastes 4:12 – Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. When we’re tempted to worry or fret, we need Your strength and power in our midst. We are so human and You are so supernatural and give us such grace and mercy. Marriage is challenging at times, but we know that You are ready to direct our paths and put us on the right track. Thank You for Your goodness and for teaching us daily how to love through forgiveness and faith. Remind us that our cares should be cast on You. We find our joy in You, and always will.
In Jesus’ Matchless Name, Amen.
Know God = Know Love
No God = No Love
It’s true. Try loving God’s way… He wrote THE BOOK on it. 🙂
