True Love Weights

24 01 2010

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

For those who are in a relationship (and also who aren’t) check these verses carefully. It gives you a glimpse of what awaits you in the married life. Pretty heavy right? If your not ready to prepare for what the verse asked, then are you ready for a relationship in the first place? How does your love for someone weights? Lets dig deeper:

1.It is a command “love your wives”. From God Himself. Not from a romance novel or movie. God commands it because it is His will. Do you want to please God? Remember to love your wife.

2.God brought this great love to the level of husband and wife relationship. His love for his church (the redeemed ones) should not come less to what marital love is. Thats high the standard! That’s true love!

3.Love between husband and wife is compared with Christ and the church. He redeemed His church by his blood. A sacrificial love. One commentator states” It doesn’t just gave us the duty but the measure of duty. I love what my pastor always says about love” The measure of love is to love without measure.” Love is not just a word. True love has a price to pay. But it will be all worth the risk if its a sacrificial love.

God didn’t command this love for us just to give us a set of rules and earn points for Him. He command it because He is the one who showed it first to us and we as followers of Christ should follow it. We don’t just follow a command but follow His footsteps for this kind of love.
