Husbands, Love Your Wives, Just As Christ Loved The Church And Gave Himself Up For Her

Husbands, Love Your Wives, Just As Christ Loved The Church And Gave Himself Up For Her

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

A woman’s greatest need is for security. Her most secure environment is one in which she is married to a sacrificial, sensitive man.
The Bible describes that kind of husband in Ephesians 5:25. Paul writes, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”
Men, Jesus gave His life for you, and you are to follow His example in your marriage. In other words, love her more than you love yourself. Sacrifice for her.
What does a sacrificial husband look like?
• He is dedicated to serving his wife.
• He puts her needs above his own.
• He makes sure she gets whatever she needs.
• He studies his wife to understand her better.
• He communicates with her and shares what’s on his heart.
• He doesn’t need to be nagged. When she asks for something, he does it.
Paul says a husband’s love for his wife is to be the same kind of love that Jesus had for the church. Jesus sacrificed Himself as the perfect Lamb of God.
To meet your wife’s need for security, guys, you have to show that same sacrificial spirit—which means you may have to give something up.

You might have to sacrifice:
• An interest or hobby, even if it’s something you’re passionate about.
• A certain group of friends who are destructive toward your marriage.
• An event or opportunity that takes you away from home or your family.
• A promotion that means longer hours or more travel.
• A job that is keeping you from being the husband and father she needs you to be.
Jesus sacrificed for us, and a husband is called to sacrifice for his wife. Meeting her need for security means using both your words and actions to tell her, “Nothing is as important to me as you are, and I will give up anything to make sure your needs are met.”

A woman will feel insecure when the man she has married is selfish and detached, when she knows she is low on his priority list. She will feel the most secure when she knows her husband is always thinking about her—and willing to sacrifice anything for her.
Guys, does your wife know that about you?

Thank You Jesus!

INTRODUCTION:

The Christian family is an institution where parents are bound together by Christian love, where children are happy and instructed with the scriptures, where the Lord Jesus is the Head and where parents and children gather daily for worship. A Christian family is one that radiates Christ, welcomes strangers and dispenses hospitality.

  1. WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE FATHER?

God has placed the husband as the head of the home. –

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians 5:23

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

 

The Christian husband must always put God first in his life.

 

Luke 14:26

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

 

He must love his wife, children and must love Christ more.

He is the priest of the family and responsible to establish a family altar for daily worship.

 

  1. WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE MOTHER?

One or two loving women have made many men great, a godly mother or a devoted wife is a tremendous asset. She is to serve Jesus Christ, show love, obey her husband.

 

 

Ephesians 5:22

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord

 

The woman is not to be adorned with ornaments only, instead, wives are to be adorned with good works, a meek and quiet spirit.

1 Peter 3:4-5

Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands

 

 Must be trustworthy.

 

WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE CHILDREN?

Children are to honour their parents

 

Exodus 20:12

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

 

Obey them

Luke 2:51

And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

 

And pray for them

 

They must also return their parent’s love. Children of today shall be the parents of tomorrow.-

Galatians 6:7

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

CONCLUSION:

 The secret of a successful Christian home is in the family altar where Christ is the crowned as Head of the home. Love is the second secret. Fathers and mothers should always remember that we are all children with a loving Father above, who constantly demonstrates His love. –

Hebrews. 12:6

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Multiplicity in Marriage! Differences In Marriage

Colossians_3-12: Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering

Colossians_3-12: Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering

Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another.

Colossians 3:12-13, NKJV

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

The differences between my husband and myself have been the basis for many fights. My husband likes everything in its place while I never even notice when things are a mess. He is very outgoing, able to recall people’s names easily. In contrast, I am almost a recluse and can’t even remember the faces of people I’ve met.

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

One day, following weeks of tension and fighting triggered by these differences, we began to make a study of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We recognized our own particular spiritual gifts, and they were totally opposite from each other. This led us to recognize other differences, acknowledge those differences by name, learn to accept them in each other, and then grow to appreciate them for the balance they give to our marriage relationship. I cannot adequately convey the blessing this has been, the peace that has resulted, and the love that has increased between us simply because after years of doing it “my way,” we finally followed the Creator’s wise directions for diversity in our marriage.
