This teaching looks at the love of God within the Christian family. God set the standard for love, and He is the one who set up marriage. He set it up to bless man and to preserve the Word from generation to generation. It looks at the Christian family in the book of Ephesians where it appears in the context of walking in love and in light of the great Mystery. Husbands, wives and children all need to walk in love to be in step with God and each other. Love is the bond of perfectness, and it works in the family of God. Jesus Christ loved God more than he loved other people and thus never compromised on the Word. We need to love God first so we never compromise on the Word. The price we pay for loving is high, but the price we pay for not loving is more than what we can afford to pay.
