The Vow of Pursuit

God is our number one and our mate is our number two.

“I promise to always pursue my two. God is my one, my spouse is my two. I promise to always pursue my two.”

Eros Love: The love of need.

It is based upon physical attraction and fulfillment. You will have to pursue love to stay in love. Proverbs 5:15-19, CEV

Phileo Love: A friendship love.

Phileo love means sharing of time, activities, the home, hobbies, games, and other objects of common fellowship. Don’t pretend, instead pursue. Romans 12:9-13, NLT

Three ways to pursue our mate and build friendship:

Show them genuine affection.

Honor them.

Value, respect, or highly esteem; to treat as precious, weighty or valuable. Honor is about what you decide, not what they deserve. When you don’t intentionally honor someone you unintentionally dishonor them. When we have Dishonor, we have Disorder.

Don’t be lazy. Romans 12:11, NLT2

Lazy people make excuses; love makes a way. If you want your marriage to be great, you have to keep it watered and pull the weeds. Water – flowing of the Holy Spirit. Without water, you will not have fruit. Pull the weeds – things that choke out your freshness and love in that relationship. Matthew 13:22-23, NCV

Agape Love: A giving love. (Godly love)

Takes the initiative and energizes the other two kinds of love.

      1 Corinthians 13:4-8, NLT

If you don’t keep pursuing the love you have, it won’t be long and you won’t have the love you had. Is your mate the treasure of your life next to God? Matthew 6:21, NKJV The deposits you make into your mate on a regular basis greatly determines your wealth, treasure, and the importance and quality of your relationship.
