How to love your wife, like Christ loved the church. (part 2) | God Bound

Continuing with Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

Christ was a minister to the church and as husbands we are to be the spiritual leader of our wives. We find this in the next verse Ephesians 5:26

to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word.

We as husbands are charged with being the head of the house and minister to the family. In order to minister, we must know the Word. In order to know the Word, we must be in the Word. We must spend time studying the Bible, surrounding ourselves with followers of Christ, and living our lives according to God’s living Word. Jesus did all these things as He set the example for us.

Jesus knew the Word. Matthew 4:10

“Get out of here Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the scriptures say, ‘You must worship the LORD your God and serve only Him.'”

Jesus could not quote the scriptures if He did not know them. Jesus surrounded Himself with twelve disciples who were literally, followers of Christ. He also lived His life as God had set forth. In doing so, Jesus fulfilled prophecies that were set in writing hundreds of years before His birth. Get yourself and your life right with God. Pray over your family. Get yourself and your family in church. Instead of yelling at your wife when you feel she has done you wrong, use it as a life lesson and explain how God says it could have been done better.

In order to do these things though, you have to know God and His word.
