Day 22 – Burning Love | Love in Marriage
For the next four days I’ll share about eros love.
Eros is a passionate and intense love that arouses romantic feelings; it is the kind that often triggers “high” feelings in a new relationship and makes you say, “I love you”. It is simply an emotional and sexual love. Although this romantic love is important in a new relationship, it may not last unless it moves a notch higher because it focuses more on self instead of the other person. If the person “in love” does not feel good about their relationship anymore, they will stop loving their partner. Remember, love is a choice!
Song of Solomon 8:6-7 Close your heart to every love but mine; hold no one in your arms but me. Love is as powerful as death; passion is as strong as death itself. It bursts into flame and burns like a raging fire. Water cannot put it out; no flood can drown it. But if any tried to buy love with their wealth, disrespect is all they would get.
Like previous messages, our love needs to be unconditional and unselfish. Loving with this kind of love [a burning passion] involves immense emotion. We must not allow our emotion to control our feelings. Many bad decisions and actions have been made under an emotional state. Seek Apape love first. Trust the Holy Spirit’s leading and guidance to really feel eros love. This type of love is expressed in Song of Solomon because eros love is from God. God created all types of love.
Prayer: Father Yahweh, I seek Your love overall. I pray that my love for my spouse is unconditional. I pray I choose to love my spouse without question, because You made love and You are love. When I love You, I love my spouse. Thank You for the love You give. I pray all this in the name of Jesus, amen.
