What Kind of A Wife Are You?
I welcome you all to the month of December, its the Lord’s chosen month, the month that marks the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. It will be the best month we have every experienced in Jesus name.
So many times I have had a deep thinking and soul searching for the kind of husband I want to be. This I have realized and I know it and I work towards it but one important thing we do ignore in our quest to be a better man is the role our wives play.
The wives/ ladies also play down on this which if obeyed according to the word, it has the capacity to put an end to divorce/ breakups, domestic violence and emotional breakdown.
The bible says the husband is the head of the home just as Christ is the head of the church. This comparison simply means that as we respect and regard Christ who is the head of the church, we should also respect and regard the husband who is the head of the home.
Bishop David Oyedepo said “The husband is the head of the home, anything that has two heads is a monster”.
1 Peter 3:1 (GNT) says “In the same way you wives must submit yourselves to your husbands, so that if any of them do not believe God’s word, your conduct will win them over to believe. It will not be necessary for you to say a word”.
The bible never said the man and the woman are the head of the home, the bible never said the husband should submit to their wives, rather it said the husbands should love their wives same way Christ has love the church and the wives should submit to their husbands.
I will advise us all to read 1 Peter 3 : 1-7, preferably in different versions for a clearer and better understanding of how God has designed couples to live in line with his words.
I pray that Gods love will never go missing in your marriage and your home shall be other peoples prayer point. You will find purpose in your marriage and your marriage shall fulfill its part in preaching the word of God to all people of the earth.
Those who seem to be experiencing a turbulent time in their marriage, I want to tell you that this is one of life’s test, the test of love and you can only scale through it in love and unity. Its time to love your wife more than ever, even though you might feel she does not deserve and seem to appreciate it but still love her same way Christ loves the church, remember she was that loving, caring and respectful lady you chose to marry out of all the girls you knew so please, don’t stop loving her and wives too, please love your husband, respect him and submit to him. Communicate with him in love even if he seem not to appreciate it now, the bible is clear on this, it said it will not be necessary to say a word for your conduct will be enough to win them over and that conduct is submitting yourself to him.
I pray that whatever situation that your marriage is faced with becomes a stepping stone to greater love and bond in your marriage. Christ has never failed and he won’t fail in your marriage, he will always show up for you and your home. That which God has started in your marriage and your home shall be made perfect in Jesus name.
You did not stumble on this message for no just cause, God is passing on a message to you, you might feel you are not married and therefore you don’t need it but I can assure you that you need it most so as to avoid any misunderstanding and role conflict in marriage.
May God open up your eyes to see clearly and your understanding to assimilate and understand Gods plan and purpose for your marriage in Jesus name.
