Romans 5:8 KJV 1900
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Love - God’s Character…just who He is!

Consummated > Completed

Love conceals the relationship...

Agape > highest form of Love
...Back in the day, the parents/community went in the bedroom w/the bride & groom, until it was time to consummate. No contraceptives were used. To know the Bride was a virgin, there had to be blood on the sheets. If not, the husband could annul or divorce his bride.

Blood must be shed…or there was no remission of sins!

Salvation is like Consummation…w/o it the relationship is null & void

In the context of interpersonal spiritual closeness, the 3 components of LOVE, according to the biblical triangular theory are...

Relationship - connection, bond

Relationship - connection, bond…love for one another
…it’s hard to love
***Song: Sexual Healing (can’t heal a wounded heart)

Mark 12:30–31 KJV 1900
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. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

The closer we get to each other, the closer we get to God.

***lay aside religion, denominations, pride, selfishness, our own agendas
***learn to trust & forgive
***not just in a relationship lacking...

Desire - zeal, drives

***this can become old & stagnant
***some stay out of obligation(duty)…Children, Creature Comforts, Joint Bank Accounts, Sick(can’t care for self)

Commitment > long term

Commitment > long term

Vows(covenant) & we stay (for better or worse)
Commitment > long term

Ring - seal of marriage

Holy Ghost - seal of God.

Intentional Suffering - if you haven’t died yet, you haven’t loved enough.

Isaiah 50:6 GW
I will offer my back to those who whip me and my cheeks to those who pluck hairs out of my beard. I will not turn my face away from those who humiliate me and spit on me.
***press towards the mark for the prize of a high calling
…in other words, I must die according to Scriptures.

The closer we get to each other, the closer we get to God.

Just because something has been ordained, you must still make righteous choices to see to it that the Scriptures are fulfilled.

Blood must be shed…or not remission of sins!

***We are so conscious of our sufferings, but we forget about our Love.

Blood must be shed…or not remission of sins!
