Gods love in us

“Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.” 1 John 4:7-12

I get married today to a woman I am blessed to be loved by. It has been in and through our relationship that I understand Gods love more. It inspires me to love and to be loved.

Beloved Lord,

Equip me to be the partner I ought to be. Bless me with the compassion, love, kindness, and affection in abundance that I ought to give to my partner. Open my eyes so that I may bear witness to your majesty nestled in her heart. Open my ears that I may hear your voice in her love for me. All this I pray so that I may answer my call to be partnered with her, your beloved creature. In Christ Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
