This one definitely goes along with the previous one! 🙂
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24
Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find? Proverbs 20:6
A faithful man!
Who can find!?
28-So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29- For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30- For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31- For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32- This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33-Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. Ephesians 5:28-33
Our relationship with our husband is so much more than just “a relationship” or even “a vow”.
It is a mystery, because it is a picture of Christ loving the church and how the church ought to serve and love Him in return…
This is a tall order that only help from that same Christ can help our man to fulfill!
Let us pray for our husbands
to love us as Christ loved the church!
