Love thy neighbor as your self :
As God said, you will find Love when you love others. God is love. Everything about the Bible is based on love.
It is because of love of god that man was created. He created the marvelous human being Adam from dust in earth. And when he saw that Adam was lonely and needed a companion he created Eve.
So, God from the beginning knew about love. He wanted to have communion with Adam, but he was betrayed of his trust when Adam ate from the tree of knowledge. And sin entered the world. But since God is a forgiving god he still blessed Adam with children.
And during years of famine, floods, diseases, earthquakes and other natural disasters god rescued man. He did All these because of love. Since God is love he requires you to love one another.
You must love your wife as yourself. If something is wrong with your wife you will feel it yourself, if you really love your wife. Be patient with your wife. She may have thousands of faults, but you need to forgive her as the Lord says “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Love covers all the sins, like wise wives must submit to their husbands. In return husbands must love their wives. And you must treat your wives with respect. Not abuse them mentally and physically.
There is absolutely no need to physically abuse your wife. Some men think just because they have muscles, a strong physique that they can bully their wives and control them. This is not what God wants as it says in the scriptures, “do not be harsh with them” God intended man to love his wife and be gentle with her.
Wives must in their part must respect their husbands and not to control them as happening in the world today. He is the head of the house, not the wife. The reason for most of today’s marital problems is wife trying to control the husband or the other way around. You must respect each other.
There will always be trouble in any household if the wife will try to act as the head of the house, trying to dominate husband. This I have personally seen in some of my friends marriages. This is a sad situation. This is not why God created man and woman. He wanted them to live harmoniously.
It is better to listen to each other, and compromise when necessary, before arriving at a decision in any matter. You need to consult each other before making a major decision like buying a car or a house. It should be a unanimous decision and not a selfish one.
When you find your soulmate, you received a favor from God. How wonderful to know that it is from God and a gift from God.
God says, “what God has brought together, let no man divide” After your marriage, you will face many obstacles in your life. It is very important that you lead a Christian life, by attending church every Sunday, attend bible studies and fellowship with other Christians. When you do that God will be among you.
Now, there will be many instances even in the church many jealous “Christians” who will try to destroy your marriage. I even know of some pastors who unfortunately get involved in illicit affairs in the church. And unnecessary gossip. This you need to expect as there are so many jealous Christians as well.
It is so unfortunate that they call themselves Christians, and actually they are not as the word “Christian” means “Christ like”. With this kind of behavior, how can one be Christ like. Impossible.
You need to love them all not only Christians as god loved the lost. All humans were created by God though they do not accept him. But bible says everyone will hear from God. And that day, they have to make a decision.
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above
yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor,
serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful
in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice
hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice
with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony
with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with
people of low position. Do not be conceited. 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay, says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head. 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Love one another-
Here again, Jesus ask us to hate evil and sincerely love one another. W e must always rejoice with one another. Honor others, never be proud. You must always help your neighbor. Whenever he is in need, you must respond with love and kindness. You must strive to live at peace at all circumstances. Who is your neighbor. Not only your next door folks, but all the co-workers, friends and relatives. You must love them.
Enjoy each others company, have communion with them. What ever grievances you may have, live at peace. Never take revenge. But let God deal with your enemies, pray for them. if your enemy is hungry give him to eat. When you feed them it will be like you place burning coals on his head, as your action will make him feel ashamed.
You must do your best to over come evil with good deeds. Never take revenge. Always be patient whenever someone does any harm.
God will take care of your battles in this world. All you have to do is pray and wait for him to act. And act he will, when you are asleep, at work, wherever. You will see with your eyes in this life, in front of your eyes. We serve such a powerful God, and it says, it will be a dreadful to face the wrath of God.
Do not be proud but be willing to associate with people who are poor and of low position. And do not be conceited. Do not boast about your wealth.
There are many among us, who think if they have a luxurious car, house and a lovely fashionable wife, that they are “it”, for lack of a better word. All this is vanity. How long will your BMW or the Benz will last. Not too long, The lord said save your treasure in heaven not in earth. ” To dust you will return ”
For years many have attacked me in numerous ways. Wherever I worked my co-workers would plot against me. They would say lies about me to my boss. And sometimes, they were successful by making my boss fire me for no reason. I am sure many of you must have faced similar situations. All these actions were inspired by Satan.
Do you know that all men and women are made in the image of God as it says in Genesis. But as sin entered the world, all act influenced by Satan. The only way to live a righteous life is to be a christian, by reciting the sinner’s prayer.
“Oh Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner, I repent of all my sins, please forgive me ” as soon as you say this short prayer you become a christian and you are on your way to heaven.
In the beginning, God loved us, beginning from Adam and Eve. But man chose to disobey him resulting in distancing God from us. But by dying on the cross and shedding his blood, and making the supreme sacrifice, Jesus reconciled us to God. But by no means God’s love is only for Christians but for everyone.Everything in life is based on Love. You were created to love one another. And all the requirements to live a life full of love is written in the bible. All you have to do is to follow them.
