How Deep Is Your Love?
Many couples invest more time into the relationships with their spouses and totally forget about God.
Let's not fool ourselves. We all want to be loved, accepted and cared for. That is not the point. The point is; that when we put more love into our mates than we do in God, we are in a very dangerous place.
I share the joys of marital bliss and the comforts that it brings. In all of the love that the First Lady and I have, I still love God the most. This love that we share on earth should be precious and valued, but do I place her above God? Certainly not! Some of you reading this now are questioning, "shouldn't we put all of our love into our marriages?" Yes we should cherish our marriages, but what about our soul? Does this earthly love mean more than your soul? What I mean is this. Many couples compromise their salvation with having someone to love. Don't get me wrong love is great; but the First Lady is not worth me losing my soul. I can't afford to spend all my time loving her and not loving God. It's true that God created me to love, but to love him first. Would I engage in the pleasures of sin for a season with my wife? We may stand tough together here; but every man, woman, boy and girl must give an account for the deeds done in their body. I can't stand before God and say,
"I would have God but my wife"
"I should have God by my wife"
What do you think God might say to me?
Many wives ignore the call of God on their lives, trying to please their husbands. The Bible is very clear about the roles of a husband and a wife. What do these roles have to do with your soul? Don't bow down and worship the love god. We should bow down and worship the God of love. Considering how He loved us enough to give us His best, that's love!
Words can not express how deep the love of God is.
Don't be afraid to enter into a relationship laying all the cards on the table. I love you dearly, but I love God more. Don't be afraid to let them know that you will not allow them to cross the line to your soul. That is reserved for the lover of lovers - God.
When this life here is over and we vowed until death do us part; what do we have left? Think about that for a moment until death do us part. It's over. What would it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? With God it is until death do we join. After death our marriage on earth is over, and if you worshipped your mate; you too may be over. However; with Jesus Christ after death we are just getting started. I love my wife dearly but Jesus is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all. He is a friend from day to day; without him I would fall.
How deep is my love?
It moves into eternity. He will have no other gods before him. Who is first in your life? Are you going to settle for shallow love or are you willing to go under? God wants people to love him with real love. He is looking for scuba divers, not people who hold their nose.
How deep is your love?
