This is an all important question that we all try to answer ever since we got married. We all are still trying to answer it and we will still be answering it till death do us part. It is an awesome truth that only death is supposed to part husband and wife. Apart from that, no other thing is permitted to separate us.
Some of us need to learn and be taught how to love our spouse. No matter how complex they are, you have the capacity to love your spouse with the love of God. It is actually spiritual to love your spouse. There is nothing carnal in loving your spouse.
These are some ways to love your spouse
1. Love God first of all
This is the very first step in loving your spouse, love God. A spouse that doesn’t love God cannot love his/her spouse. God is love and it take a heart that knows God to love. You love God by loving His word, and doing His will.
When you love God this way, it becomes easier for you loving your spouse because you would have developed the capacity to love and put the flesh under. The human nature is generally selfish and does not want to love unconditionally.
God expects us to love our spouse unconditionally.
2. Know that you need God all the way
Loving God is not something you do half halfheartedly or once and for all or once in a while. Because you cannot fully know God completely, you have to keep yearning for more of him. The more you discover about God, the more you want to love him. So in loving God, you become a God chaser. Then you see that you also love your spouse better.
I have seen in my own experience that, the more I chase after God the better I love my spouse.
