Love Quote for Valentine’s Day

The secret to intimacy with another person is discovering the sufficient of God’s love without that person. It is the only way we are ever free to give love to another human being who can never meet the needs of our souls… Couples… cannot be Jesus for each other, which means they dare not need to get married in hopes of finding what only a Savior can provide.

M. Craig Barnes, The Pastor as Minor Poet, pg. 46

    This quote was so appropriately timed for me! I just wrote a whole post about how we are not to look to our spouses to “complete” us, because that is God’s job alone. I went trolling around WordPress to see if anyone else felt the same way. I am so glad I came across your blog. I’ll be back.
