THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF MARRIAGE
By DIGC 18 October 2019
Your muscles are not meant to fight your wife but to fight for your wife; it is not to intimidate your wife but to accommodate her.
SCRIPTURE: Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.
Ephesians 5:22, 25.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your muscles are not meant to fight your wife but to fight for your wife; it is not to intimidate your wife but to accommodate her.
Marriage is the legally or formally recognized union of two people, a man and a woman. Simply put, it is the state of being married.
In marriage, a man leaves his father and his mother in order to be united with his wife (Genesis 2:24). It is critical also to know that God is the originator of marriage. (Genesis 2:18). So, marriage is not just recognized by humanity but it is also approved and recognized by Divinity.
Now, marriage itself is responsibility. The man should be responsible to his wife and the wife should be responsible to her husband.
The truth is, you are meant to relate with your husband or wife the same way Christ relates with His Church. And this applies to singles who will get married someday. Anytime a woman sees her husband, she should be reminded of Christ, and not be reminded of the devil. The man is not meant to be a picture of wickedness in the home or a symbol of tyranny to his wife.
The tragedy today is, some men are the lions of the tribe of their families, including those who are Christians and church workers. When they are returning home from work, their children and wives would begin to quake. This is absolutely not of God.
Beloved, your muscles are not meant to fight your wife but to fight for your wife; it is not to intimidate your wife but to accommodate her. Masculinity is responsibility, and marriage is responsibility.
REMEMBER THIS: Your muscles are not meant to fight your wife but to fight for your wife; it is not to intimidate your wife but to accommodate her.
1. Determine to be responsible or to become more responsible in your marriage
2. Let your wife or husband see Christ in you by the way you treat him/her.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the Grace to embrace responsibility in my marital relationship. I refuse to be a source of pain to my wife or to my husband. Make me a reflection of Your Image when my spouse beholds me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
