Beyond Vows | Falling in Love and Staying in Love

Biblical Love. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, NCV)

Go over the 15 qualities of love.

The difference between love and infatuation.

Infatuation: the state of being completely carried away by unreasoning passion, an addictive love. Love: can be described as feeling of intense affection for the other person, interpersonal love.

Infatuation is often lost in emotions; Love is a decision and commitment to work through conflict instead of giving up. Infatuation is often selfish and uncontrollable; Love is physical chemistry over a long period of time.

Infatuation can be short-lived and self-centered; Love wants intimacy, commitment, security, and desire to please the other person.

Infatuation has a sense of urgency, intensity, sexual desire, and high-risk choices; Love is faithful, loyal, confident, and a willingness to make sacrifices for the other person.

Infatuation takes off fast but the feeling begins to fail; Love can have a time of infatuation but then deepen into care.

Love is a choice. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20, NKJV)

Blessings and curses in your life and marriage come as a result of the choices you make. You don’t fall in and out of love. (1 Corinthians 13:8, NCV, MSG; 1 Corinthians 13:4, MSG)

4 Ways to reconnect.

Go to church together. (Hebrews 10:25, NKJV; Psalm 127:1, NKJV)

Make sure you are both saved. (2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV, AMP; John 13:34-35, NKJV)

Be around the right influences. (1 Corinthians 15:33, CEV)

Practice the right actions over and over. (1 Corinthians 13:4-5, NCV)
