We Love Because He Loved Us! Valentine’s Day 2017

valentine_banner2016This Valentine’s Day, we want to love one another well because of how God has loved us in Christ by His Spirit! To help you do that, here are several resources, events, and more for you!

Tripp: The Invitation To Love

tripp_the_invitation_to_lovePaul Tripp is an amazing communicator, pastor, and counselor. But what is really amazing about him is that he is captured by the beauty of the Gospel of Christ and has a passion for connecting that to our lives. He is connecting the power of the Gospel to our romantic relationships in The Invitation to Love, and you can download the entire resource for free!

The Key To Marriage Longevity

Ligonier Ministries for Marriage

Ligonier Ministries provides several resources. Pastor and theologian R. C. Sproul explains from Scripture for “The Intimate Marriage.”

On top of that, it is important to think about what is true love. Burk Parsons reminds us that, “God is love, and love never fails because God never fails. Love cannot be separated from God and cannot exist without Him… Although the world, the flesh, and the Devil would love to strip love of all its beauty and character in order to make it adaptable to every conceivable context and theology, such would be a futile attempt. For just as God defines God, God defines love.” Think with Rev. Parsons how God’s love shapes our marital love on Valentine’s Day!

Finally, some of the best romance in the world is contained in the letters written between husbands and wives. Dr. Michael Haykin brings together letters from twelve significant relationships down through church history in a book entitled The Christian Lover. “The contents range from courtship communications to proposals of marriage to final words before dying, but most have to do with the ups and downs of married life.” You can order the book, or download it free in digital format here!

Zion Resources

You don’t have to go to other websites to find tons of great resources for love this Valentine’s Day! We have so much right here at zionerchurch.com!

We have a bunch of marriage resources for you to look at: touching on intimacy, strength, saving marriages that are dying, and so much more! We hope you’ll take a few minutes to look at the videos and read the articles.

We’ve done various events for Valentine’s Day in the past, and our very own Pastor Brian leaves his resources from a few years back, as well as plenty for marriage in general.

Love one another well for the sake of Christ!
