Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
Ephesians 6:24 (NKJV)

Certain relationships in life require only moderate degrees of devotion. A degree of reserve and distance is suitable in relations such as these. However, there are other relationships in life where this changes when friendship becomes love. Two hearts give themselves to each other to be no longer two, but one. Instead of being separated, their interest and paths are now together. The reserve and distance suitable to mere friendships are fatal in real love. Love gives all and must have all in return. The wishes of the other party become binding obligations, and the deepest desire of each heart is to know every secret wish and longing of the other, in order that it may do all in its power to gratify those desires. Is that the kind of love, affection, and obedience you have for Christ?
