Husbands and Wives


The Word of God has a lot to say about husbands and wives. It was the first covenant that God made with man (husbands and wives). God said that a husband was to leave his family and be joined to his wife. God was using the husband-wife relationship to show what it is like between God and man. God knew the difficulties in forging a relationship between a man and a woman. They became the two halves of one person. Where each isn’t complete without the other. They aren’t two individuals anymore. They are one person in the marriage relationship. God asked, would you hurt yourself or take care of your own body? A husband and wife are one body. As a husband, I like to quote the scripture from Ephesians 5:22 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” Then in the same breath He says, husbands love your wives as Christ loves the church. Then turns around and says, wives reverence your husbands. Then when children come along, it is a game changer. God has a lot to say on raising children. But that isn’t the point of this blog. The relationship between husband and wife is sacred before God. And He put a warning in there saying, let no man divide this asunder. In today’s world, where good is considered evil and evil is considered good, people are doing just that. God is against divorce and has a few choice words for those who do. He condemns it. There is nothing that God can’t do. Including, fixing a marriage. If the husband and wife will seek Him, God will heal any wounded heart. You must first come to yourself and understand the need. Then God can fix your broken heart.
