Most of us are familiar with these- #relationshipgoals and #marriagegoals
The Bible offers the ultimate marriage goals for us in Ephesians 5:24-25. The King James Version says:
Therefore, as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
As we create marriage goals for the year, let’s hold Ephesians 5:24-25 in mind. Loving like Jesus and submitting like the Church should be prioritized in marriage.
Since marriages are failing after several decades, I believe we should continue celebrating other people’s marriages and learn from their wisdom. However, we should pray in line with God’s Word. For example, pray that your husband loves you like Christ loves the church, instead of praying that your marriage should be like the Smiths’ or that your husband loves you like another man loves his wife.
Why should wives submit in marriage, and what makes it easier to submit in marriage? I will address these questions in another post.
Happy New Year, Happy Married Life.
If today was your last day on earth, do you know where you will spend eternity? Are you sure you will make it to heaven? If you are not sure, you need to give your life to Jesus Christ. Please say the prayer below and let me know about it here.
Say this: Heavenly Father,
I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I believe you exist and you sent Jesus to die for me. I receive your love and forgiveness. Reveal yourself to me. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen
Welcome to God’s family!
