Love is the topic of the hour this time of year. In fact we kicked off a series discussing Love & Marriage: Exploring the Role of Women in Christian Marriage over at Blogs by Christian Marriage on Sunday. You know relationships intrigue me and I want to know the secret sauce for making them work and not just work but work well. Alida was nice enough to stop by the blog to share some of the lessons she’s learned for a love that last.
Yet it’s hard to take the word love seriously when we toss it around to describe our latest fascination with a tech gadget, handbag, book, and then devotion our friends, partners and ultimately to Jesus.
Although February is the month that garners the attention of love, Ephesians 5:2 tells we ought to live in love as the Anointed One loved you—so much that He gave Himself as a fragrant sacrifice, pleasing God (The Voice). The KJV expresses it as walk in love. Either way it is not something relegated to a certain time of the year but rather an entire way of life to live in the present moment.
