Forgiving Freely: Philippians 2:1-2

A Forgiving Love heals hurts and helps spouses feel accepted and connected.

1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.


Serving Humbly: Philippians 2:3-11

A Serving Love discovers and meets needs and helps spouses feel honored and understood.

3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped.7 but made himself nothing , taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


Persevering Courageously: Philippians 2:12-13

A Persevering Love stays strong in tough times and helps spouses feel bonded – best friends for life.

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.


Guarding Vigilantly: Philippians 2:14-16

A Guarding Love protects from threats and helps spouses feel safe and secure.

14 Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16 as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.


Celebrating Joyfully: Philippians 2:17-18

A Celebrating Love rejoices in the marriage relationship and helps spouses feel cherished and captivated.

17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.


Renewing Daily: Philippians 4:4-7

A Renewing Love refreshes and supports the marriage bond and helps spouses feel confident and rooted.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
