You know that Jesus Christ gave up His life for you. There’s no greater love. If you are going to be a true Christian husband, you need to understand the sacrifice our Lord Jesus did for you.
How to be a Christian Husband:
- You must LOVE your wife as you love yourself & in the same way Christ loved the church
- Sacrifice for her, in the same way Christ gave up His life for the church (remember, you weren’t perfect when Christ gave up His life for you)
- Provide & Care for her, as Christ cares for the church
- Honor her
- Understand her *OR ELSE (scroll down below to see what happens if you don’t)
The Bible says, “For *HUSBANDS, this means *LOVE your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He *GAVE UP His life for her…In the same way, husbands ought to *LOVE their wives as they *LOVE their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church.” (Ephesians 5:25, 28-29 NLT)
The Bible goes on to say, “In the same way, you *HUSBANDS must give *HONOR to your wives. Treat your wife with *UNDERSTANDING as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should *SO YOUR PRAYERS will not be hindered.” (1 Peter 3:7 NLT)
***WARNING: What if you don’t follow these things? Then your prayers can be hindered!
