True Love thru Christ








by Christian Siebens @flyingchristian



He wrote this-a slip in of amazing words in the handout for our wedding.


Here it is:



We have all heard 1 Corinthians 1-13., but do we truly understand what it means? This passage gives the most complete description of love in the Bible. It sows us that love needs to be the one thing in life we seek more than anything else. For without it, whatever we do or say really has no lasting value. Compare the love described in the Bible with superficial love found in this world.


God says love should be directed towards others...
The world says love should be directed toward ourselves

God says love is patient love is kind...
The world says love satisfies your immediate needs

God says love is never jealous or envious...
The world says love isn't necessary to make people respect you

God says love is never rude...
The world says love lets you act as you please

God says love does not demand its own way...
The world says love gets in the way of what is in it for me

God says love is not irritable and holds no grudges...
The world says love takes a backseat when it comes to taking revenge

God says love rejoices in truth...
The world says love doesn't understand or ignores evil

God says love is loyal...
The world says love should be self serving


God's TRUE LOVE is a natural outflow of His presence in our lives. Seek Him. He will strengthen you and give you true peace. If we do this our relationship with Him and with each other will never be the same again!


The most important piece of clothing you MUST wear is love. Love is what binds us together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes only from Christ rule your hearts.

Colossians 3:14-15


It is our prayer as we begin our life together that God's love abides in us all and flows throughout our lives.


We love you,
Christian and Heather

I left you an awesome comment, previewed it, then I was unable to post it, hit the wrong button. That's how my whole day has gone. I admire you very much, Heather! You are an inspiration to many. You and your family have endured much, but you have stood the test of time. I can't even imagine what you & your daughter go thru. I've only had one friend who had to deal with seizures. She is no longer with us. Life isn't always fair, and it has its challenges each day that we must go thru. We don't always understand why we must walk thru the hard times. I know that you have touched many lives because of where you had to walk. We don't know who will walk across our path, at what moment of time, that we will be able to minister life to because of the challenges that we have walked thru. Thank you for being you, an inspiration to many.
