This week in bible study we will be talking about Love. As I have been preparing for this lesson I continue to have conversations with women about their struggles in marriage. It seems we all struggle at some time or another. I don't have the answers, but I know one thing for sure, God does! It has brought me great comfort to have the priveledge of turning to Him in the midst of my pain. He always leads me in the right path, unlike people. ( I love people, no bitterness in that statement!) I know the questions to our heart's cry is only answered in Jesus, people dissapoint us, The Lord never dissapoints us. Read this verse and meditate on it before this week's study..
Colossians 2:13-15, 3:12-19
And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. . . . 3:12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. 18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
