Christ and the Church

     I don't know if the Cues are Christians, but their love reminds me of the love that Christ has for the church. It's a love that's hard for me to wrap my mind around.

     "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. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband." - Ephesian 5:25-33

     Lord, please teach me to love as You love. I don't know how and I am not able apart from You.

     What has been the greatest example of God's love in your life?
