Love Your Wives...

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; Ephesians 5:25

The most important duty a husband has toward his wife is to love her. Protecting, providing, leading and everything else that a husband should do for his wife is wrapped up in these words...Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church.

If a husband truly loves his wife, doing all the things that the word of God says he should do will be an honor. For the Christian Husband whose heart has grown cold toward his wife through sin and disobedience, doing anything for his wife will seem like drudgery. What a shame that, the one man who his wife has placed all of her hopes and aspirations in, has chosen to trample on the soul of the woman he said he would love.

Let us as Husbands seek to do the will of God. You don't have to guess at God's will for you in your marriage. You don't need your wife telling you that things need to change. You don't need booze to wash away your sorrows. You simply need to start actling like a Man. Start loving your wife and start watching her blossom.

Seek to:
  • Honor her with your speech.
  • Understand her with mind.
  • Cultivate her with your hands.
  • Encourage her with your tongue.
  • Embrace her with your heart.
  • Defend her with your life.
May the Lord's peace and strength fall upon us all as we seek to carry out His glorious commands!

God Bless You Men...and begin today to love the wife of your covenant!
