Some people think that love is just a feeling, what is this feeling about? Tension, excitement, blush with shame or rapid heartbeat? The real feeling could actually not be controlled by the will of the individual. The only thing that can be controlled is our actions, not emotions. We can’t force ourselves to feel happy, but we can choose to do some things that often can make happiness happen, or make oneself have a better chance of being happy.
Jesus gave people a new command: ” a new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”(John 13:34) He wanted the people to understand being faithful, so they will love each other. It is basically built on the love of God first, and so Jesus also gives his disciples. To be continuous, this is kind of holy love and forever love. The modern marriage is based on an example of the love of Jesus Christ. True love is not just a feeling.
Additionally, because the love of Christ, the “active” love becomes the foundation of marriage. Couples who live in the happiness are not only as partner in love, but also as the friends. They enjoy being with each other together, willing to share life and resources together.
