Husband’s and Wives

God created marriage when he said it was not good for Adam to be alone and made them male and female in Genesis. He left precepts (guidelines for marriage in the bible).

Be Content With Your Wife

“Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth” Proverbs 5:18 (KJV).

Be Faithful

“And this second thing you do. You cover the LORD’s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor from your hand. But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the LORD was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the LORD, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the LORD of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless” Malachi 2:13-16 (ESV).

Also Proverbs 5:18; Ecclesiastes 9:9; Song of Solomon 4:12 tells husbands to rejoice with the wife of his youth, it means appreciate her, value her, celebrate her, laugh with her and love her.

Husband’s and Wives

I’ve heard it said that marriage doesn’t come with a manual, not true. God had laid down guidelines, but either the husband or wife or both refuses to comply seeking to follow the path of culture or the norm. When you follow God’s way you have a marriage made in heaven enjoyed on earth, but it up to you to make the necessary change!

rose-3063284_640What I’ve observed is a husband expecting so much from his wife and giving her nothing or hardly anything in return or a wife doing the same to her husband. This is abuse.

As with anything when you misuse and abuse it, it becomes of no value to the abuser and both parties err here.

Do you love, appreciate and value your wife?

Do you love, value and appreciate your husband?

If you responded Yes, to the question. Do they know it? How do you show your spouse that you love, value and appreciate them?

Going back to that marriage manual, have you read the above scriptures? Read them and measure your marriage success by them and if you’re still sceptical read Ephesians Chapter 5: 22-32 (this is the bedrock scripture for Love Nurture).

Don’t seek to be like other husbands or wives. just seek to be the best husband and wife for your own spouse. This is the start of real transformation and a God centred marriage.

Put your thoughts below and remember to keep it honest.

the true meaning of Easter

true meaning of easter 2As a mum I understand the pleasure of treating my children to easter eggs, but we all know it’s about Jesus. 😀

They understand Easter’s true meaning in that God sent his only begotten son to save mankind from sin.

They understand that the momentary pleasure of the egg cannot replace God’s salvation plan.

We celebrate Easter because, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16 (NLT). Now we all know, no parent, however loving can give that!

The Hope of the Resurrection

true meaning of easterSo, gift your precious child and indeed family the best Easter gift ever, introduce them to the Saviour of their soul. That way even after death you’ll see them again.

13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.
15 We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 18 So encourage each other with these words 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (NLT).

Now, wouldn’t you say that was far better than just an Easter egg?
