“A husband’s love for his wife should be just like Christ’s love for His bride”! ~ PAV
Eph 5:25 (NIV), “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her…”
The way Christ loved the church is the standard in how husbands are to love their wives! If Christ doesn’t hit his bride, cheat on his bride, flirt with someone else’s bride, lie to His bride, neglect His bride or mistreat His bride, then husbands why should we?
We are to love our wives like Christ loves His bride. If we need any help in doing this we should go to the throne of the One who can help us. Let’s not think that to love our wives in this way is impossible because every command God gave us to do, is doable and not burdensome. Why? Because He will help us to do all that is required of us as husbands if we allow Him to help us.
Be encouraged Husbands! When we operate in Christ, it becomes our very nature to love our wives as we have been called to do because if we are believing husbands, we should be clothed with the one we believe in; which is Christ (Rom 13:14)!
1 John 5:3 (NLT), “Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome”.
