PODCAST: Nine Apps for Marriage Part 5 - Love is a Decision

 

"I still love my spouse....I'm just not 'in love' with my spouse." This is what I hear all the time from couples whose marriages have lost their spark.

John 4:19 describes the kind of love that must fuel your marriage. It is the extravagant, limitless, and sacrificial love that is modeled by Christ.
