1 John 4:7-8,12 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.... If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
Husbands and wives need to let the love of God dominate them and not just natural human love because natural love is so shallow.
Christians have an advantage over other people. Not only can they love their spouse with natural affection, but they can add to it divine love which never seeks its own, but always seeks the other's welfare.
We need to try to never consider ourselves first or what we want; I want to consider Tami first and what she wants. I never want to be self-seeking; I always want to put her first. And we try to reciprocate. We always try to outdo one another in love. And how blessed it is! Praise God! Our home is like Heaven on earth.
Does your Home have a love atmosphere? "When someone visits your home, is it like heaven. You can feel a presence of love there the when you walk into a home that is walking in Love.
We create atmospheres in our homes.
If we walked in love, (divine love) there would be no hate, no child abuse, no abuse of any kind, no wars, no divorce, no ISIS, no money problems, no rape, no violence, no food shortages, no church splits, everyone would go to church, everyone would get along, it would be heaven on earth.
Confession: I will walk in divine love toward those I love. I will let the unselfish love of God pour through me to them, creating an atmosphere of love!
