A young couple sat across the table from me. It was
their last pre-marital counseling session before they were to
be married. We were just ready to close in prayer, when the
bride-to-be asked a very deep question.
She had seen so many of her friends jump into marriage
full of joy and excitement, only to have deep heartache later. With a trace of fear in her voice, she began, “We both feel so ‘in love’ right now. But how can we keep our love alive through all the stresses, pressures and struggles of married life in the 21st century?”
On Sunday, I will be sharing with you the answer I gave
this couple. The Bible gives us FOUR choices we need to
make, to keep love “alive”. I will be sharing these four
choices this Valentine’s Day Sunday. If you ever plan to
marry or are already married, I would make sure you are
there at 10:00am sharp to worship the Lord (which will tie
into one of the four qualities) and then to learn about these
four decisions. In fact, I would not even DATE someone,
unless these four Biblical qualities are present!!
At the end of the teaching, I will give any couple who is
interested, an opportunity to either publically or privately
renew their vows!
It may be cold outside, but it will be very warm with
God’s love inside Living Hope Church!!
God bless and can’t wait to see you Valentine’s Day Sunday!
