Loving by Faith by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 05/09/11

 

“It’s just over between me and my husband. I just don’t love him. I don’t even think I can love him.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It really is possible to love your husband—no matter what. Jesus commanded us to love our enemies. So even if your husband is your worst enemy, Jesus says it’s still possible to love him. How can you do that? We love by faith.

So tell God you can’t love that person, and then ask Him to love that person through you. Loving by faith means that you don’t wait for romantic feelings. Instead, you act according to 1 Corinthians 13. Love is long-suffering; it’s kind; it isn’t jealous; it’s not selfish; it’s not rude. It doesn’t keep account of wrongs suffered.

Ask God for His love, and then purpose to love that hard-to-love person by faith.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
