Hello! Welcome to day 3 of my Affirmation Love Bible Challenge! I pray everyone is keeping up with me on this and reading and writing down the love affirmation of the day!
I wanted to dedicate a couple of weeks to speak LOVE INTO EXSISTENCE! Love for GOD, family, friends, mates and OURSELVES! Love is a beautiful thing and when we decide to love God first then God can really show you how to love yourself. When you are able to love yourself completely without validation from others, then you in turn can truly love others in return! So lets get into DAY 3 OF OUR LOVE BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY!
KING JAMES VERSION(for those who want a simple way to understand the Bible, check out the NEW INTERNATION VERSION NIV)
so ought men to love their wives as their own bodies, He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let everyone of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
Gotta love this Bible verse! God is really saying that if the husband do no respect his wife, then he do not respect himself. God is also telling the wives to respect her husband in return. I learned from my marriage to my husband is that men want respect. Showing him respect is a form of love for him. God always knew that and now He want married couples and those who want to be married to respect and love each other as God loved us! Amazing stuff !!!
