LOVE DOESN’T TAP OUT

LOVE DOESN’T TAP OUT

 

Have you ever had your spouse “let you down” at some point along the way?

I’m sure, if the truth be told, you have let your spouse down also.

Human beings, and especially spouses, FAIL each other at one time or another.

1Corinthians 13:8 “Agape (love) never faileth…”

Love will last forever!!

Paul concludes POWERFULLY in 1Cor.13:8 that Gods love is forever!

Paul was trying to tell us that Gods love never disappoints or fails.

God’s love can always be counted on because it is always RELIABLE.

The way to get this love is to “die to self” but you cannot manufacture love.

Agape love never falls into ruin.

What is the difference between the world’s love and agape?

The SOURCE!!!

Agape has a source that is supernatural and that is a “supernatural God.”

Our constant challenge is to tap into that SOURCE.

Agape adapts to all circumstances and any country.

Does your love for your spouse fail more often than you would like?

That is because we are human beings and our love “taps out.”

As you grow in Christ the quality of “unfailing love” is manifested to our spouse.

As we obey the word of God, we daily progress in Christlikeness.

How do you feel when your spouse falls from the HIGH position they hold in your life?

How painful is it when you see a fellow warrior fall or stumble in battle?

Doesn’t this” let you down”?

God’s love is reliable and it is constant.

We are God’s CONDUIT for his unfailing love.

Remember, we cannot manifest this agape on our own strength.

Are you having a problem loving a spouse who is UNLOVABLE?

What with man is impossible, with Christ it is Him-possible!

Seek what is going to have enduring VALUE to your marriage.

Agape (Love) never “TAPS OUT!”

NOTE:  Daily there is a new post to help you make your marriage a success.

    Mrs. Nancy, through reading your post, I realize that what I’ve been thinking is what you are describing…Agape. This is what I feel for my wife which is why it hurts so bad seeing us go through these tough times. I pray to God daily to see us through this wilderness. I wanted to share with you and your readers the message I sent to a friend this morning:

    “Not having my wife by my side as my wife and friend is killing me daily. I have given my life to God and prayed that He return her to me since He also sent her to me and me to her. I told her this morning that having gone through so much, I realize that I need her more and more. Many people may not understand when a husband says, I can’t live without my wife. But I really mean that. I’ve learned what Agape love is. (unconditional love) This is the same love that God has for us. As much as we mess up, He still loves us. This is what I have for my wife. More importantly, my life is not complete without her. We have spent the last 12 years building a great relationship based on love. I could sit here for days thinking of all the good things God has blessed us to see and experience. I read a scripture (Psalms 40:13) last night where David said, “Be pleased to save me, LORD; come quickly, LORD, to help me.” That is how I feel. I’ve been through so much pain this year that I need God to come quickly into my life, into my wife’s life, into our house, and help. I don’t know how to put it any other way.”

      Hi Dion! We all have to go through hurts in life. If we are going to reign with Christ, then we must partake of His suffering. It draws us closer to Him and makes us Christlike if we stay obedient to His word. By waiting on God, it is your way of proving your love for him and he is able to show you what His Holy Spirit can do through you. Also, it is your certification badge to help others through tough times in their marriage. The God who created the earth has heaven open to you so He can assist you. His love is powerful!!
