What’s Love Got to do With It?

love_600I know you have heard the song "What's love got to do with it?" well according to the Word of God, love has a lot to do with it. There are a lot of people that that give up on their relationships due to they fall out of love with one another. What we have to remember is that, there is a thing we call unconditional love, the same kind of love God has for us.

God loves us so much, that He came from heaven in the form of man and gave His life for a sinful world, why can't we love one person, the person God has put us with. The bible says in Ephesians 5: 25 "And you husbands must love your wives with the same love Christ showed the church. He gave up his life for her." This scripture tells us that love has a lot to do with, and that must be done because that is a command.

The way people treat each in marriage and other relationships is very selfish, it is always about us and not other, we always treat other from the way we are treated, but what we must remember is the love Christ has for us, in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 says "Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." Now there should be no question left in your mind about what love has to do with it.

Husbands and wives your love for each other should be a lifestyle, not just a feeling, because feelings are subject to change day to day. In a marriage relationship love should be forever or as you said in your vows to each other "til death do us part." Love has a lot to do with it, so begin to love one another with all of your heart.
