as i’m laying in bed, trying to stay warm, something told me to open the bible app, so i did it. soon as it opened, Ephesians 5 came up and what caught my eyes was “wake up” because i need to get up and start my day, but this weather telling me otherwise. so i read the first 2 verses and i’m honestly happy the spirit told me to open my bible app. these two verses in Ephesians 5 not only reopened my eyes to the never dying love of Christ, but as well how we should love one another. “watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents” and what God does is love us unconditionally, so why can’t we practice living a life of loving unconditionally? then Christ loved us extravagantly and that’s where my heart got taken away… “His love was not cautious but extravagant” like wow just reading that took me honestly. then when it said “He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us” that’s where the icing on the cake came. like He wants to give everything of HIMSELF… one individual… all to us. that’s one heck of a love, like that’s an undying, everlasting love you have to have to give your everything to someone, sometimes those who don’t even deserve it.
when i read finished reading the text, i told myself for one, i want to love like that & two, i have to find someone who’ll love me like that. i feel like these two verses come pivotal to relationships, especially those looking into marriage. you must love your partner as God loved you, there’s no other way around that. even when one messes up, you can’t just not love them, because God never switched his love on us, so why must we switch on one another. like the last words of the second verse says… “love like that” we must continually love like God and Christ loves us. unconditionally.
