Your Christian journey extends way beyond the expectation of what God can do for you and should present a desire to meet the needs of others. Jesus stated, “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (St. Matthew 25:34-40). It is a true statement…“we serve the Lord by serving one another.” Two of the Jesus’ disciples, James and John, had desires that one would sit on the left hand of Jesus in his kingdom and the other on the right; however, they did not understand the Spirit of the kingdom. The Spirit of God’s governing may be defined with one word…LOVE. The scriptures state, “…first of all the commandments is…The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt LOVE the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these” (St. Mark 12:29-31). It’s a tragedy, that so many spend the majority of their life in some sort of religious atmosphere, sanctuary, edifice, synagogue, or mosque and miss this extremely important principle. “God is Love” (1 John 4:8). Therefore, LOVE can be identified as an unconditional extension of God’s grace divinely imparted in our life without prejudice and absent of fear. Apostle Paul defined Love in 1st Corinthians 13, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (LOVE), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (LOVE), I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (LOVE), it profiteth me nothing. Charity (LOVE), suffereth long, and is kind; charity (LOVE), envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity (LOVE), never faileth”. So, if God is equivalent with LOVE and LOVE never fails…neither should his activated LOVE in us cease to exist.
Our ministry encourages couples to invest time and energy into the all-important work of preparing for their married life together. We want your marriage to be thriving and healthy; therefore, we emphasize the necessity of love. “Love” can be defined in many ways. Christ’s love for us is unconditional love, and this is the love we are to seek in marriage.
