“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.”
- Jesus loves His church unconditionally. He will never ignore us, turn His back on us, refuse to stand for us or be separated from us in any way. Jesus loves us even when we complain, we are unfaithful, we give so much attention to other things, and the list goes on and on. His love is unconditional and so should ours be for our wives. Love God with all your heart and use the example Jesus set and the power of the Holy Spirit to love your wife unconditionally. No excuses or conditions, just love, regardless of situations and circumstances.
- Do you love your wife? How much? How deeply?
- How does your love for your wife measure up to the love Christ has for the church?
Thank you, Jesus, for loving us in this way and give us strength to do the same! Amen
