Loving Your Wife God’s Way 3-The Final piece
This post has been long overdue. It’s been pending for over a year.
So that you can get the gist, find the first two parts of this and read
And ladies before you start gloating-especially if you are new to my blog, find the series on submission God’s way and please read it.
Okay guys, lets round this up.
If your relationship with your wife is supposed to be a replica of Christ’s relationship with the church, you are the representative of Christ in your home.
You cannot represent Christ to your wife if you do not know Him. No matter how much you try to love your wife outside of Christ, you will fail.
Therefore your love for your wife is not dependent on her submission to you, its should be a fruit of Christ in you.
Now,that said, if you are to be to your wife what Christ is to the church, one of your responsibilities is to be the priest of your home.
The ‘prayer warrior’ title in your home does not belong to your wife, it belongs to you. This is not to say that a woman should not pray, I am clearly stating that contrary to popular belief and opinions, it is not the woman’s job.
What you sow into your wife is what you harvest and since the harvest always outweighs the seed, check the seeds you’re sowing.
Hold on to the ultimate husband -Jesus as you continue to love your wife God’s way.
Thanks to all who followed this series. I pray you learn something you can use.
I know I’ll be back to use these things soon.
Who’s with me?
