Ephesians 5:25 NCV: Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it
Today’s message is directed to husbands and would-be husbands. We are shown the type of love we are to have for our wives. The type of love Christ has for the church.
The day you decide to get married is the day you have decided to sacrifice your life for the sake of your partner. You are to go all the way to build her up and make her better than how you met her. Loving her unconditionally. Letting go of her faults and praying constantly for her. Seeing her with the eyes of Christ in whatever she does. Never allow what people say to influence your actions towards your wife.
This is how you are to demonstrate your love for her: Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not get upset with others. Love does not count up wrongs that have been done. Love takes no pleasure in evil but rejoices over the truth. Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always endures.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NCV
Declare to yourself loud: I have the love of Christ in me.
Lord Jesus, may I always demonstrate your love every day of my life. In Jesus Name. Amen.
