Today we are going to be discussing love. Four little letters that combine to form one of the strongest words known to man. Jesus when asked by a scribe what the was the most important or first  commandment answered: Mark 12:28-33  And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 29.And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.31. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 32. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: 33. And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. With a love for God first it enables us to love all other things. When we love and glorify God it brings our mind, body and soul in one accord and enables us to live a life of love.I want to know discuss the love in marriage. I want you to understand that sex between a man and woman is not approved by God unless it is with in the confines of a marriageProverbs 18:22  Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.I know this scripture to be true. Man and woman we formed for the glory of God and brings you to them as well as Him. “And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 1 Corinthians 7:10″The position of a wife is vital to God; it is a status whose influence can be positive or negative. The Word of God commands the wife not to depart from the husband because God sees the wife as an important vessel by which He may influence the husband. A wife who recognizes her role in society and the kingdom of God will definitely not depart from her husband. Understand how vital and important you are for society and the kingdom of God and play your role wisely. Marriage is the backbone of the family and thereby the life of mankind. When married people unite and conceive and give birth to children and love those children it gives glory to God and His plan. Then as we love those children we need to raise them to Live God , their families and then their neighbors. This goes back to the 2 commandments Jesus was speaking of. There is some much more in the Bible about Love especially the Love God has for us. However, that being said I want to discuss the hardest part of love:Matthew 5:43-46  Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.44. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45.That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?On this Valentine’s day I want you to take time and share the blessings from our Heavenly Father with all those you love. However we need to take time to honor and love the one that created love. Tomorrow we will continue our discussion of love and it’s roll in our lives. If you have a question, comment, or prayer requests please email me at deon.burgett!@gmail.com.  May the love of God reign in your life.
