There are 4 words in Greek for the word “love” in English. Last week we talked about passionate love and this week we are talking about unconditional love.
1. “This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command” John 15:12-14. Love each other the same way Jesus loves you. That is a tall order. As a couple list some ways that Jesus has shown His love for you.
2. The greatest love is shown through the sacrifice of Jesus. What are some specific ways that you can sacrifice your desires, plans, and agendas for your spouse?
3. Unconditional love implies forgiveness, mercy, grace, compassion, humility, and commitment. When two people love each other this way the couple is strengthened through honesty, trust, and safety. Take turns sharing with each other any areas you need forgiveness. Then express unconditional love towards one another.
