follower. (john 13:35)

I love my husband, but I really, really love Jesus. I love the qualities my husband displays: grace, selflessness, kindness, mercy, and love. I love them because they are Jesus. A favorite piece of scripture is Galatians 1:24. In which, Paul has just shared his testimony and the new man he is because of Christ. And the people that knew him as this new creation “praised God because of him”. They didn’t praise God because he simply showed some shallow external quality that they liked. No–they praised God because he was walking, living proof of the gospel. He displayed the power of God.

I’m thankful for the gift that my husband is and for how he lives out the gospel daily. All the more, because I am able to praise God because of him.

By this, everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13:35
