Finding Christ Through Romance
Is true romance storybook fiction? In a day of twitter and Facebook, we hide in an imaginary world hidden behind a cloak of invisibility. My bride and I worked through fifty years of real-life romance intermingled with intermittent intervals of conflict. Please don’t get the idea that only women think romantic thoughts. Men try to hide it on the gruff back pages of a sports magazine, but it’s there in the question: How do I get her attention and make her happy?
Dating, marriage, and betrayal are not fiction, and yet fictional characters can guide us through our real-life experiences with characters that parallel our own struggles. In my stories of love and contention, my hope is to lead the reader to transforming truths.
Jesus loves romancing His bride, the church. He shows His love for His bride in the many stories He tells about her. We see one of the most romantic stories about His love in the Song of Solomon. He speaks as the groom and wants us, His Church, to return that love He declared from the cross as He gave His all for us. All He wants is our faithfulness in our love.
