You Can’t Love Everything About Your Partner: 1 John 4: 7-21
Most people enter into relationships or get married for the wrong reasons and as such find it hard to deal with the reality of ‘LOVE’ because the rosy picture painted of love during courtship and the wooing stage is a lot different from the main concept of love.
So they eventually grapple with truly and really loving the strengths and weaknesses of their partner. Some give up bybelieving that they just can’t cope with the reality while others endure the relationship rather than enjoying it. God, the author of love never made love to be a herculean task.
Do you think you can’t really love your partner? Check with God. ‘We love because He first loved us’ (1 John 4:19). If you’re loved by God, you’ve got love to give, because ‘…love comes from God…’ (1 John 4:7). You don’t have to initiate it; just give what has been given to you.
There’s no need for pretense or endurance in your relationship. Surrender your life and relationship to the author of love (God) and He’ll transform that relationship. Only in Him can our love for our partners continue growing and never stagnate, reduce or disappear entirely.
Remain richly blessed..
