But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Audio MP3 Message: Sacrificial Love of Spouse

Written by

I will be honest I often find my guard go up when I think of our society’s view of love on Valentines Day.  On this day we can see how how society can sentimentalize love.  It can even commercialize and cheapen love.

But that’s not a biblical view of love.
