Marriage Monday: Husbands, Love Your Wives

20130916-084948.jpgHusbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;…So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. (Ephesians 5:25, 28 KJV)

–Husbands your wives are that ‘special’ part of you that deserve to be loved, taken care of and protected. Show your wife you love her every day. Do not leave it up to her to figure out. Yes, tell her this often but work to show her in unmistakable ways.

–Husbands take the spiritual lead in the home. Don’t leave your wives exposed to the world or to spiritual attacks. Cover her and pray for her. Be the Prophet and Priest of your home. Spend time with God to get the vision and direction for your marriage and home.

–Husbands listen to the wisdom God has placed in your wife…she is your helper. Trust her and share with her the things that are on your heart concerning the direction for the family. Turn things over to her that she is better equipped to handle.

–Husbands let your love be sacrificial. You go when she does not; do when she cannot; and will, when she will not.

Husbands, love your wives

    “As Christ loved the Church”, dying in our place when we were still sinners, forgiving even those who turned enemy. It means husbands should be the first to forgive, sacrifice self to relieve the excess burdens wives often carry, and love without power over or demands. I have always hated it a lot when husbands think the “head” is the lord instead of the visible witness to the LORD.
    Peace
