Before you go any further, please make sure that you’ve watched the video above. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’ve got to check it out!
It’ll be a one of the most touching and inspiring video clips that you’ve ever seen! Trust me, you don’t want to miss it.
God’s love is so powerful
After I saw this video for the first time, I found myself saying, “This is why we share God’s love!”
There is no way that this wonderful woman (Larissa) would be able to marry her husband and be able to love him without Jesus.
There is no way that this wonderful man (Ian) would agree to marry Larissa after his accident if it wasn’t for Christ being in His life either.
Just think about it. If you were in Ian’s shoes after the accident, would you have wanted your loved one to stay with you or, would you’ve wanted to “set him or her free?”
Jesus is the only reason behind why these two have been able to stay together in their marriage and thrive.
And that’s why we share Jesus with others, both in-person and online. God’s love is so powerful that it changes who we are on this earth as well as our eternal destination.
An amazing quote
One of the best quotes that really resonated with me is when Larissa says towards the end of the video:
“We’re able to love each other with I think a more Christ-like love because of Ian’s disability and just understand that picture a little bit better than if you [Ian] were healthy.”
Aren’t there times in your life when God has allowed you to suffer so that you can learn how to love?
That reminds me of a quote by Pastor John Piper, who says, “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”
Have you always been satisfied with what God has allowed to happen to you in your life? Why or why not? How does the love of God make the difference in how you react with life’s let-downs?
