love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it
(Ephesians 5:25).

Marriage was
designed by God as a beautiful relationship between husbands and wives. For the
husband, the Bible says he should love his wife “as Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself for it.” Now,
you know that Christ proved His love for us by the supreme sacrifice of His
life on the cross of Calvary. This gives an indication as to the way and manner
husbands should love their wives: with self-giving and sacrificial love.

That means
the husband ought to be willing to put his wife first, he should protect her,
shield her and be willing to make sacrifices for her. God didn’t make the
husband a taskmaster to his wife, one to be bossing her around and lording over
her. Some husbands love to show their wives who’s boss; if you’re a husband,
you don’t need that. You don’t have to batter or boss your wife into
submission; just love her as Christ loves the church. He loves us, in spite of
our shortcomings and our sins – that’s how husbands ought to love their wives.

The Bible
says,Married men, in the same way, live
with your wives with a clear recognition of the fact that they are weaker than
you. Yet, since you are heirs with them of God’s free gift of life, treat them
with honour; so that your prayers may not be hindered”
(1 Peter 3:7
WNT).  A husband who mistreats his wife
can have his prayers hindered. Things may keep going from bad to worse for him
and he may be crying to God for help, not realizing that his not walking in
love towards his wife is what’s responsible for his dilemma.


Dear Father, thank You for the
beautiful and inspiring thought I’ve received today. I realize now, more than
ever the importance of relating with others with Your love. Thank You for
imparting Your love lavishly to my heart, and making me the expression of that
love, in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!
