For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word.Ephesians 5:25-26
Husbands, Love your Wives
Christ loved the church so much that he gave up his life for her. He made her holy, clean, and washed by the cleansing of God’s Word. God instructs husbands to love their wives in the same way. Love her so much that you would do anything for her. You would even give up your own life just so she may live a holy and clean life. This is a selfless act. God told husbands to love their wives in a selfless way.
God created women with a need to love and be loved. His first desire is to fill that need Himself. He wants to be her first love. Then, he wants man to fulfill that need. He created women with a tender heart and knew they would need to be loved, so he placed man and woman together. They literally were made for each other and made to love Him. Man can only love woman, though, if he loved God first. So husbands, seek the Lord so you can love your wives with that same kind of love.
You can learn how to meet your spouse’s needs in marriage if you study the way He wants you to love in marriage.
A Prayer to Remember
I know you created man and woman for each other. May I love my spouse with the type of love that would give up everything- the way you love me. Amen
