I’m Married Now What?
Part 1: Let’s Talk About Love
Kirk Franklin penned the following words and paired them with beautiful music and name the song LOVE released with the Group God’s Property in 1997.
“Love a word that comes and goes, But few people really know, What it means to really love somebody, Love, though the tears may fade away, I’m so glad your love will stay, Cause I love you, And you show me, Jesus, What it really means to love.”
Love is one of those words that seems to loose its meaning in the English language. It looses it meaning when we use it for meaningless banter. When viewed from a Greek etymological view we see that this simple four letter word is deep and powerful. Love has the ability to shape your world, move your world and ultimately change your world view.
Over the next couple of weeks we are going to talk about marriage. I know for sure that one of my assignments while I am on this earth is to strengthen marriages. What I do know for sure is that I did not have a father to tell me how to navigate this institution that so many of us choose for our live. After all the Bible does teach that “marriage is honorable’, so it is great that many of us choose marriage. Many men make it a plan for their lives to marry, but so many of us have never been shown real love. When it comes to romancing (which is one of the Greek words for Love) we have been undated with examples from cheesy romance novels to that one uncle who knows how to “get the girls”.
As we work our way through many scriptures it is my desire that I help you get a deeper better understanding of marriage and the standard that we as men need to hold up in our marriages.
1 Corinthians 13 4-7 (God’s Word Translation)
4 Love is patient. Love is kind. Love isn’t jealous. It doesn’t sing its own praises. It isn’t arrogant. 5 It isn’t rude. It doesn’t think about itself. It isn’t irritable. It doesn’t keep track of wrongs. 6 It isn’t happy when injustice is done, but it is happy with the truth. 7 Love never stops being patient, never stops believing, never stops hoping, never gives up.
Teach me what real love is
Guide me as I lead my wife in love
Teach me to be kind and patience with my wife.
Build my trust with my wife so that I am jealous of her and her accomplishments.
Help me maintain humility in all that i do with my wife.
Thank you for my wife.
