OVERWHELMING LOVE

 

A godly husband can have “love attacks” towards his wife. Husbands may have a difficult time expressing these heartfelt experiences and overwhelm both him and his wife. This is called “agape” love. Agape love is not a worldly fleshly love, but is holy and comes from God. Agape love is the spiritual manifestation of His Son’s sacrificial offering of love for His church [those that believe in Him]. This union is sealed by His Holy Spirit within us and we become one in Christ. The Covenant of Love. Agape love grows and is expressed between a husband and wife [and also among the believers] throughout the years as their holy bond is strengthened by Gods Spirit. When the husband manifests a sacrificial love towards his wife, the presence of Jesus Christ becomes overwhelmed within their union. Agape love strengthens their relationship and produces more love.

The Bride belongs to the Bridegroom.  The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegrooms voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. He must become greater; I must become less.” John 3:27-30 niv. 

 

The Bride belongs to the Bridegroom.

The Believers belong to Jesus Christ.

The Church [not a building] belong to the Lamb of God.

The Sheep [who know His voice] belong to the Shepherd.

The Children of God belong to The Author of our Salvation.

 

The lists and titles are endless just like all of the many mysteries of blessings given in abundance to those who believe. 

 

Unless God’s creation be consumed with this overwhelming love, how can they be producers of such love? Unless we accept His love within our hearts, where would we receive our strength? For the very power of the weapons of our warfare was begotten at the cross through His love. The power of His Holy Spirit was given to us for th
