A Thought for Today: “A Christian Marriage”
What does a Christian marriage look like?
Please read the following verses
21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body.
31 “For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
32 This is a profound mystery — but I am talking about Christ and the church.
33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
In this passage, we find instructions for the wife and the husband.
If more couples followed these guidelines, their marriages would be much stronger and last longer.
If you noticed, (please read it again if you didn’t), these instructions use the name of Christ twelve times.
Christ is the key to an excellent, rock-solid marriage.
Keep Him at the center of your marriage and prepare to flourish.
