How Advent Informs Our Marriage with Love

If it weren’t for Christ coming to earth as a baby, we wouldn’t be able to express true love to our spouse. He paved the way in the darkness to bring light and love to all who believe in Him.

If you and your spouse walk in the truth of His coming, this is the best of news. You have available to you both the ability to love each other with the same love He has loved us.

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”

1 John 4:9-11 ESV

The key is to remember this everyday. Especially this year and this season.

Let’s purpose today to choose to love our spouse in practical ways. Find ways to pause in the busyness and reflect on the gift it is to have them by your side. And then tell them!

Our love shines to all who know us. And this glorifies God because apart from Him our love would fall short. This is the best of news!
