Jesus models commitment. Before Jesus was born, the Bible teaches us He existed as God in eternity past. He had it all, but He gave it up to bring salvation to us. That means He came to where we were, put up with our habits, listened to our needs, and cared about our cares. He tied his future to ours and said, ‘I will never leave you and never forsake you.’ Love commits, and to fully love the person in your life you have to commit. You need to say in word and deed, ‘I will never leave you and never forsake you. I am in this for the long haul. My future is your future.’ Don’t ever threaten divorce just to get your way. Don't run off when things get hard. Plan dates together. Plan trips together. Talk about your goals and dreams. You care for each other by committing to each other. Jesus modeled this commitment to us and to the church.
