“God wants us to chase after true love, and the truest love is him.”

April 28, 2019

God is our husband. It can seem like a pretty strange analogy. Sometimes we don’t know what to do with it, or even how we feel about it. What does it even mean? God has designed marriage to be a picture, a shadow, of the ultimate true love we have with him. This is what every romantic love story points to. And to understand the depth of the love of God, we need to feel the depth of that love when he declares, “your Maker is your Husband.”

Application Questions

  1. What comes to mind when you think of God as a husband to his people? In what ways does this reflect the reality of his relationship with us?
  2. How can you practically chase after God and the true love you find only in him?
  3. How might life look differently if you were to pursue God as the ultimate love and fulfillment of life?
  4. Reflect on the fact that God’s ways are higher than your ways and his thoughts are higher than your thoughts. How does this bring comfort and confidence to your understanding of his love?
