Marriage series pt3: sacrifice
The last of the Marriage Series focuses on sacrifice. When we are truly in love there are sacrifices that we are willing to make. The blog post What Love Is goes into love and its characteristics, listen to that again if you need a reminder.
As I have said before in previous posts; love should never hurt you physically or emotionally. It is not a healthy relationship when one is manipulative, abusive (emotional and physical), selfish, bullies, etc. I pray you don’t even get close to someone like that (see healthy relationship post for more info and free tool). Literally dying because of someone is not the sacrifice you want to make. If you are in a domestic abuse situation, call the National Domestic Violence Helpline now at 1-800-799-7233.
To sum it up, the marriage covenant is very similar to the New Covenant and its Peacemaker, Jesus. Jesus is God’s covenant with us. Jesus is the blood covenant that covers our sins and forgives us, the gate to heaven. (There is so much more on that subject that I would be writing for days! That will be a future post.)
“It puts the law within us, writes it on our hearts
It makes God our God, and us his people.
We will know the Lord – small or great in the eyes of others –
We will know him!
Our iniquities will be forgiven; our sin remembered no more!”1 (see Hebrews 8:10 – 12 NASB).
