It is within our nature to love someone…
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; Ephesians 5:25
I am going to a wedding today. The groom is a friend of mine that I use to work with. He is a great guy and he truly loves his bride.
I enjoy going to weddings. It reminds me of the great love that Christ had for the church. It reminds me how much Jesus loved me before I knew Him. (But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8) It reminds me of how I should love my wife. (Ephesians 5:25)—unconditionally.
While Jesus first loved us and gave Himself for us on the Cross of Calvary, it should be our response to love Him back! “We love him, because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19” So…WHOM DO YOU LOVE?
