Art of Living #25

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #25 : "Keep yourselves in the love of God." (Jude.21).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : When you get married to the love of your life, how do you maintain the fire of the love with which you have loved your spouse in the early days of your married life, when you have newly got married and fallen in love with each other passionately? It is a simple decision of living to please your sweet heart in all things which will keep the flame of love burning. In today's world, most marriages fail because both the spouses do not even think of the needs of others and much less think about living a life pleasing to their spouses.

When a family disintegrates it starts first with the spiritual life of a man or a woman. God has instituted the husband and wife to become one in the One who holds them together in a spirtually unbreakable covenant of love in Himself (Matt 19:4-6). Spiritual intimacy between God, husband and wife is a Love triangle and a three fold cord of deep unconditional selfless Love that cannot be broken (Eccl 4:12).

True intimacy between a husband and wife develops not just in physical intimacy, but in a spiritual intimacy that goes beyond getting or giving satisfaction to each other. The foundation of a society that keeps it strong and joyful in this life on earth depends upon how much of God is present in each of the family in a nation. A nation is as strong as its families put together. We cannot say we love our spouse and keep flirting with another woman or man. If there is no action behind the words we speak, it is all a empty lip-service which has no real value in real life situations. Jesus said to his followers, "...He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” (John 14:21). Like in our earthly life and family, if we want a strong and a glorious relationship with God for now and for eternity ahead, we ought to have the commandments of Jesus in our heart and keep them constantly in our mind in order to allow it to influence our actions because of our love towards God. If we stick on to this basic, we will keep ourselves in the Love of God by LOVING JESUS WITH ALL OUR HEART and will truly experience the Love of God abundantly in our lives. Jesus has promised that when his followers love him, God will love them and Jesus Himself will love them and will shows his favour, grace and his strong fire of His love in their heart which will bring a heavenly joy in to their heart. THOSE WHO ARE IN LOVE WITH JESUS ARE THE MOST SERENE, TRANQUIL AND PEACEFUL PEOPLE YOU CAN FIND ON THIS PLANET EARTH, WHY DON'T YOU CHOOSE TO BE ONE! Wishes and Blessings....
