Open Heaven 5 June
MEMORISE: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;” – (Ephesians 5:25)
READ: Ephesians 5:25-31 (KJV)
Christ has an undying love for the Church. Since His relationship with the Church is our model, let me ask: Brother, do you love your wife enough to die for her?
If a husband loves his wife genuinely, a lot of the usual problems they complain about would be avoided. As a man, you should not buy new shirts for yourself and forget to get for your wife; that may just show how little you love her.
(2 Corinthians 8:9) says Jesus became poor so that we can be rich. She should be your priority, looking better and more radiant than you. This is one thing I admire about men from the Igbo ethnic group of Nigeria. They take very good care of their wives. While the man may don just singlets and shorts, his wife would be arrayed in the latest fashion. Open Heaven 5 June
Some men find it difficult to spend time with their wives. If you really love someone, you should spend time with the person. Jesus said if you call Him at any time, He would answer (Jeremiah 33:3). That is how you should be with your wife; anytime she needs you, you should be there. You are the priest of the home just as Jesus is the Churchs high priest.When you express your love for your wife, she will cook better meals for you, and look more radiant, more beautiful for you.
“…He that loveth his wife loveth himself.” – Ephesians 5:28
From the experience of Job, we see that a man’s wife is his life. God told Satan that he could touch all that Job had except his life. Satan killed Jobs children, destroyed all his property, inflicted his flesh with sicknesses and diseases, but did not touch his wife. She was unscathed because God had said “Don’t touch Job’s life”; and since they were one, his life was hers and hers was his. Whatever you do to your wife, you are actually doing to yourself.
She should be loved, protected, nourished and cherished greatly because your life depends on it. God is taking note! If you don’t believe, read Malachi 2:12-14. Dont cheat yourself.
KEY POINT: How well do you express your love for your wife? Remember, actions speak louder than words.
