Marriage Principles To Live By.

It is disheartening to see the state of many marriages today. We see couples facing challenges and struggling to stay together. Many of these marriages are disintegrating or have already been destroyed because husbands and wives have failed to love according to God's principles.

But fear not, for God has graciously provided us with His perfect picture of love. Through His Word, we are directed toward the Biblical Principles of love that can help restore any relationship. As believers, we have the capability and responsibility to love this way.

Let us begin by exploring the Scriptures. In John 3:16, we read, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." This verse demonstrates the ultimate form of love, sacrificial love. Jesus gave up His life for the Salvation of humanity. This love is not easy, but we can emulate it.

Furthermore, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a paints a picture of love that is patient, kind, not envious, not boastful, not proud, not rude, not self-seeking, not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs, rejoices with the truth, always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. This lengthy list describes love in its entirety.

Last, in 1 John 4:8-11, we read, "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." This passage reminds us that we should love one another because God loved us first.

If you have failed to practice Biblical love in your marriage, please do not despair. You can be restored to the Lord by remembering where you have fallen and repenting of your failures. In Revelation 2:4-5, we read that we can return to God by doing what we did first out of a loving heart. This means showing affection, communicating better, valuing one another's opinions, and prioritizing the relationship above all else.

In conclusion, when it comes to love in marriage, let us look towards God's example. We can love sacrificially, be patient and kind, refrain from anger, and put our faith and hope in one another. By doing so, even the most troubled of marriages can be restored and strengthened by the blessings of Christ. Thank you, and God bless.
