Ephesians 05:25 (MEV)
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it,
Marriage in Christianity ought not to be a flop as is the case among the sons of rebellion. Christ has made all the requisites for a healthy, fruitful and enjoyable marriage. All that’s requisite is for the man and the woman joining (or already) in this institution to shun ignorance and in place love the Truth. Selah!
Beloved, it’s accurate knowledge that delivers, liberates and preserves God’s righteous ones. Hear Proverbs 11:09 (AMPC), WIth this mouth the godless man destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge and superior discernment shall the righteous be delivered.
Yes, Christianity isn’t a call to gullibility but rather it’s a call to smartness as “ICB translation” renders that Proverbs 11:09, “By his words an evil person can destroy his neighbor. But a good person will escape by being smart.” Praise the Lord!
With this settled in our hearts we then establish from the Scriptures on the partner’s responsibilities in this God-inspired and driven institution. Our lead verse outlines man’s key role: to love his wife unconditionally. Selah!
The husband is to love his wife as Christ loved His church and even gave His Life for her. Husband’s love for his wife is to be purely characterized by this Christ-like giving at all times. Selah!
Understand that you don’t love your wife because of the good deeds she has done or fail to love her because of her misdeeds but rather you are to love her at all times. Let your love lavish your wife at all times. Hallelujah!
1 Peter 05:07 (MSG), Live careree before God; He is most careful with you.
Gracious Father thank You for this Truth taught I this day. I commit to loving my wife as You have loved I. My marriage will minister God to my world all days. Hallelujah!
