After Mr. A’s mom was finished with her reading, it was time for Chris, our preacher, to begin his sermon.
I’ve probably listened to it a hundred times but every time it touches me. Chris really did an amazing job creating a sermon that spoke about our relationship. I’m not surprised that Chris did a wonderful job. It was his preaching that initially drew us to his church and his consistent ability to make us think deeply has kept us there.
“Hear now these words from Paul’s letter to the Romans, from chapter 12, verses 9-13:
We are witnesses to the force God has chosen to transform not only individual lives, but also the world that we live in. This love is not an emotion or a warm feeling, which is easily produced and can just as easily disappear, this love is the sum total of a daily faithfulness.
Mr. Adams for the way that Ms. Adams has changed him for the good and Ms. Adams for the ways Mr. Adams has deepened her life. What a gift you have been given: knowing that God has used you to impact the life of one that you love so deeply!
My hope for you is simply that your relationship will continue to be shaped and molded by the love you’ve come to know in Christ. Remember that this love, which we are called to build our lives on, is unconditional and that it is to be lived by not only word, but in deed.
You know the saying, ‘To whom much is given, much is expected.’ Your calling now is to fashion your life together so that is becomes a living testimony to the grace of God that you have received and experienced.
