Scripture: 1 John 4:7-21
Love, exciting and new
Come Aboard. We’re expecting you.
And Love, life’s sweetest reward.
Let it flow, it floats back to you.
Love Boat soon will be making another run (https://www.lyricsondemand.com/tvthemes/theloveboatlyrics.html)
Remember some of these old shows? Shows like The Love Boat and Fantasy Island where people would come to explore new relationships or to fall in love all over again?
The concept has not gone away. People still look for love in all sorts of places. Couples like to get away together, without the kids, to remember their love for each other. And there is nothing wrong with that at all. Bev and I try to take advantage of such opportunities whenever we can.
Love is a very powerful emotion. Just think of all the things it makes us do. It makes us commit ourselves to one other person for our entire lives in this thing we call marriage! It makes us feel other emotions like jealousy. It makes us do crazy things like move to another country. It can also make us feel like our world is shattered if the relationship breaks down. Love is incredibly powerful. And it can also make us change in ways we would have never expected.
