I Am Committed

A love song.

Usually when we hear love songs on the radio (or the Disney channel), they are either one of two things:  mushy or depressing.  Why is that? 

The reason why, is because the "world" does not know how to celebrate great love.  Love that lasts forever.  Love that is committed.

In the Word, we certainly see the standard set.  Christ died for His holy bride.  In Eph. 5, Paul writes,
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that He might present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body,

Here is a video from Sho Baraka, were he attempts to showcase the very thing.  Watch it, I hope you will be encouraged.

Men, let's rise up and commit ourselves to purity, righteousness, truth, love.  It's so worth it.  
For our kids.  
For our wives.  
For the Gospel.  
For the glory of Christ.
