I don’t want to hear any of you bragging about yourself or anyone else. Everything is already yours as a gift—Paul, Apollos, Peter, the world, life, death, the present, the future—all of it is yours, and you are privileged to be in union with Christ, who is in union with God.
When John and I decide to follow after God and get married, God provided all of it! He found rings for us and a photographer. We did the flowers and the cake on our own. Within a few months we got married and began our journey as husband and wife. We once were two and now we are one in Christ. Neither of us can boast about our ministries. We know that we cannot do anything apart from Christ and that is one constant in our life.
John has a unique ministry and so do I, yet as a married couple we minister together. John ministers differently than I do but our ministries fit together like a hand and a glove. Even though we have different calls on our lives, we mesh as one. We have learned our strengths and weaknesses as a married couple and have sought God for the answers to any confusion.
It seems as if God sends people into our lives at just the right times to keep us moving forward as one unit. God knows the plans He has for both of us. He knew this before we were born. John and I were talking the other day and we wondered if perhaps we knew each other in heaven when we were just spirits. We have been best friends since the beginning, almost as if we already knew each other.
Love can never really be measured, but we know this for sure. Love is deep when it is true. You will need a deep vessel in which it carry it because you do not want to lose any of it. If your love is shallow, it will not grow. Roots need room to grow. Roots need some place deep to reside in so as not to be easily uprooted by day to day things. Choose to grow your love deep into the love of God. Choose to let God be in charge of your marriage or relationship. Begin to see your lives as seeds desiring to be massive fruit bearing plants for Jesus.
