The Divine Design For Husbands


Old-Couple-on-Street

Heavenly perspective for husbands,

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her…” (Ephesians 5:25)

Christ’s self-sacrifice was the strongest love ever demonstrated in this world. Thus, the apostle holds up the conduct of the Redeemer toward His church as the model for a husband to imitate in loving his wife. Therefore, marriage is more than a sacred covenant with one’s spouse. It is, in its fullest, a spiritual discipline designed to make men more like their Savior. So husbands, apply the words of our Lord today, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15:13).
