Falling in love is one of the greatest experiences anyone can have. There is added energy, resolve, excitement, and joy. God so loved the world that He gave His only Son. God desires so much for us to love Him back. But human love leaks. The added energy, resolve, excitement, and joy of falling in love return to their normal state in due time. What if we could experience falling in love all over again? What if God could put that Spirit inside us permanently?
Isaiah 7:10-16 and Matthew 1:18-25
The scene is George and Mary Bailey’s Wedding day that was interrupted by a “run” on George’s Savings and Loan where panic motivated people to withdraw all their money immediately. Mary even gave up her honeymoon savings to save her husband’s business. Her trust in George was tested that day… much like Joseph’s trust in both God and his wife Mary, even though common sense and society’s rules told him otherwise.
