God’s Love And Love In A Marriage

Copyright (c) 2009 Stephen Lau

Jesus led a simple life of love. His life is a model for living in faith and love – in particular, love in a marriage.

What is love in a marriage?

A marriage is a purposeful decision to create something new for two individuals. This new creation requires three integral components to cherish and grow: intimacy, passion, and commitment.

From the Christian point of view, love is first and foremost based on God’s love – a decision to love God and be loved by Him.

“Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” (Romans 8:35)

Accordingly, the purpose of a Christian marriage is to imitate Christ to love one another, as well as to know God through the knowledge and the love for each other.

Self-love (not the narcissistic love of self to the exclusion of loving others) is the foundation of love, including the love of God. The reason is that self-love is an expression of moral obligation to the Creator – a belief that we are created in His image, and therefore we should love ourselves, as well as others. Self-love, surprisingly, is a prerequisite for loving others, including God. This belief makes us extend our love of self to love of God, as well as to others, who are all created by the same God and in the same image.

Love in a marriage is made up intimacy, passion, and commitment. Intimacy is connectedness to your marriage partner through sharing values and feelings of closeness. Passion is a result of the intimacy, leading to romance, physical attraction, and sexual consummation. Essentially, passion is purposeful involvement, requiring a decision. Commitment, too, is a decision to sustain the relationship in spite of the odds and obstacles encountered. Life is of choices and decisions, and marriage is no exception.

Jesus’ life is a model for love in a marriage. He lived with the purpose of doing the will of His Father – acceptance for all, including Jews and Gentiles, rich and poor, young and old; He demonstrated His commitment to preach God’s message of unconditional love and forgiveness.

A successful marriage is one in which two individuals have made a decision to love each other. However, a decision to love does not necessarily imply a commitment to love. Commitment to love often grows or increases over time, provided the marriage partners can survive the ups and downs of a marriage – and this is where commitment to love plays a pivotal part. Remember, commitment to love is a decision in life, just as our decision to love God. It is more than words or mere talk: it is action in faith: “let us not love with word or tongue, but in deed and truth.” (1 John 3:18)

Love is the foundation of a good marriage, and that love is cherished and enhanced by the love of God.

MARRIAGE: Caring Enough To Listen = Communication

When God created marriage he intended for it to be beautiful. It was designed for companionship. Marriage was not meant to seem like a sentence. It was not meant to be of on going drudgery. Nor was it meant to neither suffocate, smother, nor repress each others unique individuality.

If God Isn’t God, Then Who Or What Is God?

In my opinion, all this Biblical nonsense boils down to a collection of myths and fairy tales for grownups. For those who really have the faith, I’m easy. But I think the concept of the Biblical God (and associated baggage) is the greatest con job ever fostered on the great unwashed. Unless, assuming that God or the gods (i.e. – Zeus, etc.) weren’t totally fabricated out of whole cloth, then maybe, just maybe, the gods, including God, are extraterrestrials.

Same Kind of Different As Me – Spiritual Fact with Spiritual Fiction

I picked up the book “Same Kind of Different as Me” in a bookstore mainly because of the cover. I fully expected it to be a book about a child (or children) and honestly thought that it would be a fiction novel. I really need to pay closer attention, as the top byline states “New York Times Bestseller and Amazing True Story”. I don’t regret taking it with me, as it is a very good book – in fact I purchased their next book “What Difference do it Make?” on my next visit to the bookstore.

Improve Posture for Self-Healing

Self-healing is holistic healing, involving the mind, the body, and the soul. Use the mind to initiate the body to take actions to begin natural healing. One of the actions to take is to improve posture. Good posture creates body balance to avoid falling; good posture eliminates many health problems; good posture enhances correct breathing, without which self-healing cannot occur. Improve posture to improve the self-healing process of the body.

Food Is Medicine

Food is medicine because food provides self-made energy for growth and development. If food is medicine—the “only” medicine for you, you will empower yourself with knowledge about good food choices of high-quality, non-toxic, nutritious superfoods. Let food be your medicine—the “only” medicine for self-healing; use good food choices, instead of relying on dangerous pharmaceutical drugs.

Self-Healing Is Energy Healing

Self-healing begins with the mind, which can create energy to bring about healing. Self-healing starts with self-knowledge, which is knowing the self through self-awakening. In the empowerment of self-knowledge, energy for healing is generated. According to the laws of physics, everything gives out energy, and your body responds positively or negatively to other energies within and also around you. Self-healing is energy healing.

Parents should be responsible for teaching their children to read. Children are born learners; and parents are their natural teachers. Parents understand the temperament of their own children; they can provide consistently daily reinforcement in developing their reading skills; they can afford the one-on-one relation with them; and they can create a learning environment.most suitable for their children.
