THIS IS LOVE; ACCORDING TO HARRY AND MEGHAN. Is it the same for all of us?


 

1 John 4:12 Love explainedLove and cherish according to God’s holy law. What does this mean?

#royalwedding- Congratulations to the newlyweds! 

Thank you to Reverend Michael Curry for his wonderful sermon.

Love and cherish according to God’s Holy Law

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, (now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) promised to love and cherish each other according to God’s holy law. What does this mean?

Did Harry and Meghan really say that?

Did Harry and Meghan really make this promise? Let’s have a look.

Prince Harry: I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from, this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God, I make this vow.

Meghan Markle: I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God, I make this vow.

Meghan and Harry promised to love and to cherish according to God’s holy law and not only that, but they also called God as their witness.

Meghan and Harry took time to adjust their vows the way they liked. How do we know this? We know this because when we compare the wedding transcript of Prince William and Kate to that of Prince Harry and Meghan we can see that the vows and wedding service aren’t the same but, as one would expect, have been individualised.

We know that the word ‘obey’ was taken out of the vows. Just as with Princess Diana’s wedding and just as with William and Kate’s wedding. All three of these royal ladies decided to equally love and cherish without the word ‘obey.’ What Meghan and Harry decided to do however is,

to love and to cherish,
till death us do part;
according to God’s holy law.

What does it mean to love and cherish according to God’s Holy Law?

Reverend Michael Curry quoted from Scriptures Deuteronomy and Leviticus as well as from Jesus during his passionate sermon,

you shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart,
all your soul, all your mind and all your strength.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like it:
love your neighbour as yourself.

Jesus quoting from the Prophets and summing up the commandments

Reverend Michael Curry went on to explain that,

On these two, love of God and love of neighbour,
hang all the law. All the prophets. Everything that Moses wrote. Everything in the holy prophets, everything in the Scriptures. Everything that God has been trying to tell the world:
Love God. Love your neighbours.

Reverend Michael Curry then said, There’s power in love to show us the way to live.

The choir sang about it during the wedding ceremony as follows,

MOTET
If ye love me,
keep my commandments,
and I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another comforter,
that he may ‘bide with you forever,
e’en the spirit of truth.
If ye love me, by Thomas Tallis (1505-85)

SQ this is love set SEE 24 72

To show that our love is genuine, we love and cherish according to the holy law and keep the commandments. Which commandments?
The Ten which you can read about here. The Ten Commandments (holy law) explain how to love God and how to love your neighbours,

music courtesy Art of Noise – Moments in Love

God spoke, and these were his words:

I am the LORD your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you were slaves.

I

Worship no god but me.

 II

“Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.  Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the LORD your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. But I show my love to thousands of generations+ of those who love me and obey my laws.

 III

“Do not use my name for evil purposes, for I, the LORD your God, will punish anyone who misuses my name.

 IV

“Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy.  You have six days in which to do your work, but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me. On that day no one is to work—neither you, your children, your slaves, your animals, nor the foreigners who live in your country.  In six days I, the LORD, made the earth, the sky, the seas, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested. That is why I, the LORD, blessed the Sabbath and made it holy.

 V

“Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.

 VI

“Do not commit murder.

 VII

“Do not commit adultery.

 VIII

“Do not steal.

 IX

“Do not accuse anyone falsely.

 X

“Do not desire another man’s house; do not desire his wife, his slaves, his cattle, his donkeys, or anything else that he owns.”

The Ten Commandments from the Good News Translation (GNT) Exodus 20:1-23

How to love according to the holy law, how to love God and how to love your neighbours is explained in the Ten commandments.
These are the words that the Creator of  heaven and earth wrote on a slab of stone with his own finger,

And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.

English Standard Version Exodus 31:17-18 

The Lord gave me the two stone tablets, written by God’s finger…

Common English Bible (CEB) Deuteronomy 9:9-11

… There’s power in love to show us the way to live… The commandments show us how to love each other by the way we live.

The Bible is all about love. Scripture tells us again and again to love one and other. Reverend Michael Curry deliberately choose those specific Scripture verses in consultation with the newlyweds to bring home the power and beauty of true lovehighlighting how the commandments tie in with this.

What is love according to the Bible?

This is love,
that we walk after his commandments.
This is the commandment, that,
as ye have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it.

2 John 6

Scripture tells us that love is being good to each other according to the holy law; Worship Go(o)d and not (d)evil, no idolatry/images, don’t swear nor blasphemy, rest one day a week, honour your elders, don’t kill, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t lie, don’t covet.

According to Scripture the love of God is that we keep his commandments.

This is the love of God: we keep God’s commandments.
God’s commandments are not difficult.

1 John 5:3 Common English Bible (CEB)

It is not that hard, to love according to God’s holy law. Harry and Meghan decided to do it and so can we.

And this answers the question; Is love the same for us ‘commoners’ as it is for Harry and Meghan? Yes, love is the same for all of us.
We can all love like royalty, according to God’s holy law.

And the how to is clearly explained by the Ten Commandments (holy law).

Love one and other

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff (New Year’s Resolutions)


Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

The end of the year is creeping closer and this is the time when we start to make our resolutions and resolve to do better next  year.

What if you wouldn’t have to resolve anything at all? What if you could just dream about what you would like to see manifest in your life and these dreams would come true?

I know that this sounds crazy and airy fairy but this is exactly what happened to me.

After a number of medical emergencies it appeared that my life was coming to an end. Laying in the emergency hospital room I contemplated futile things. So futile, that I’m embarrassed to repeat it.

After I pulled through, I decided that this simply was not good enough.

What if I were to stop sweating the small stuff?

1

Yes, it was true that I could not get up from bed for more than a few minutes at a time, but hey, the sun still came up every morning and set every night. And I was alive enough to notice this.

So what if my arms and shoulders got tired after typing for a little while? At least I could type, and my old little laptop was still holding up.

What if the noise from neighbour’s lawnmowers was so distracting that I couldn’t focus? The fancy orange earplugs from Bunnings did a great job in keeping the noise out. Combined with the Bilsom ear muffs I managed to create my own little writers retreat.

The noise, lights, heat and any movement were overwhelming to me, but I was still around and with the help of my daughters everything eventually became manageable. We found earplugs which helped minimise the noise and curtains to block out all light and movements from outside. A fan to cool the air and comfy cushions that supported my back as well as my head and arms. Bit by bit I stopped sweating the small stuff.  

Do The Best You  Can

Sure it was upsetting that I couldn’t ‘do’ much, but I decided that ‘doing the best I can,’ is good enough for me.

11

It is not only good enough for me but it really is all anyone can do. It is useless to fret and sweat about the things we cannot do (any more).

Make Every Moment Count

What each of us can do however, is make every moment count. In the past I may have been distracted when my children were talking to me and showing off their handiwork. Nowadays I make sure that I am present and in the moment when I admire their creations and listen to their adventures.

‘You won first prize at the archery competition? Wow! No, really; WOW! Let’s celebrate.’

‘You received an award at work for being the most exceptional employee? That is outstanding! I am so proud of you!’

5

From now on I make every moment count. For a lot of the time I was not capable of much other than dreaming about what I would like to see manifest in my life. I prayed and dreamed and built massive castles in the sky. Because that was all I was able to do.

DRIVEThe other day I read in Scott Allan’s book Drive Your Destiny about “research where Russian scientists conducted experiments on the training methods of four groups of athletes:

TRINING

The fourth group had the best result overall, outperforming the competition in the Olympics.”

I am living proof that the mental training works. Physical training wasn’t really on the menu. I spent my days dreaming to my heart’s content about what I would like to see manifest; and here we are 5 books later.

All that my castles in the air were lacking, was solid ground underneath them. That foundational work is now in process. I call it, reverse-engineering your life.

Give It Your Best Shot

When you’re writing down your New Year’s resolutions, don’t worry if all your ducks aren’t in a row yet, don’t sweat the small stuff; dream away, write down what your ideal life looks like and then give it your best shot. Science has your back.

I pray for God’s blessings over all my readers.

Blessings for righteousness

According to Jesus, Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

News reports often fill me with anxiety because it appears that there are so many injustices in the world. Sometimes it is possible to write a letter here and there or make a donation, but often enough the best we can do is sink to our knees, and send our heartfelt prayers for a better world up high.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness

I pray that my readers may be filled and all the good promises coming true soon.

According to Jesus, Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.

What does meek mean? Quiet, patient, gentle, benevolent, kind, unassuming, humble and courteous are the words that come up in google when I search for alternatives to the word ‘meek.’

Let’s just say that I’m working on it…

Who are the blessed ones?

According to Jesus, Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.

I’ve mourned plenty over lost health, lost friends and fortune and many other things that have gone awry in my world. Do I feel comforted now? Very much so.

I mourned when I had to leave my old town, which I loved a lot. Now I’m feeling warmly embraced by my current new town. Praise the Lord!
