The Unfaithful Wife Seeking
by Angie Lewis
These days it seems, even the wife is getting
herself into a little trouble when it comes to staying faithful. This
article does not concern women who don’t care about right or wrong,
and have become rebellious to their husbands. Any woman can be
unfaithful to her husband, that’s the easy part; the hard part is
being unfaithful to her beliefs.
The main reason a wife would be unfaithful is
non-committal to her marriage. Without this important aspect covering
the marriage, she will undoubtedly fall for the misinformation of the
outside world, especially if her marriage is not so great to begin with.
The second reason is she is not committed to God, which is really the
first reason, because I feel that without full belief and acceptance of
Christ Jesus who has given us all of who He is, a woman will not be able
to devote herself to her purpose in life.
When a woman becomes born again, she is given a
newfound strength from God that frees her from temptation. In other
words, she is able to control her lustful attitude and remain faithful.
This gives a wife the freedom to live for God rather than for herself. If she cares about the sanctity of her marriage she should
try and figure out “why” she would skip flight and become unfaithful
in the first place, or better yet, find out how she can learn to devote
herself to her marriage, whether all is going well or not
Watching television shows that depict sexual lust,
immorality and adultery, condition the mind into believing adultery is
acceptable. These demoralizing shows make unfaithfulness look glamorous
and alluring, but it is not. God does not allow us to do what we want
now, and then later celebrate heaven with Jesus. Nope, it doesn’t work
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage
bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexual
immoral. (Hebrews 13:4)
An unfaithful wife should take a look at her
attitude and see what she can do to change it from bitterness of heart,
to love, truth and goodness. When she seeks the truth, she will
ultimately find the love of Christ within, and she will then be able to
forgive herself for her transgressions. Once that is accomplished she
can begin living for the Lord rather than for herself. I truly believe
that most unfaithfulness in marriage stems from not keeping in tune with
our spiritual side. We have to study the word and we have to bring the
word into our heart and mind on a daily basis for reflection and
If a wife has been unfaithful and she is repentant
for her actions she will not do it again. That means she will not go out
of her way to look for it. Her repentance has saved her from the
temptation; therefore, she will do whatever it takes to remain faithful
to her husband and work on her marriage. If she is unable to forgive
herself and she is wrapped up within guilt she should come to God and
pray about it, asking Him for release from her pain and suffering.
A wife of noble character who can find? She is
worth far more than rubies. (Proverbs 31:10)
If she is unable to forgive herself, she will not
find it an easy task to accept forgiveness from her husband or God.
The problem is now she is in a catch 22, because without God’s
Spirit of love and truth penetrating within her she is likely to repeat
her unfaithfulness over and over again. If a wife feels in her heart
that she has done wrong and wants to save her marriage, she has received
forgiveness already from God; she should accept that she has been
forgiven and heal herself.
A woman’s purpose is what makes her who she is. A
married woman can choose to seek out what her purpose is and begin
living for what God created her to be.
Once a godly woman finds her purpose it will be difficult to
break her free from progressing further into the truth of her existence.
For she has found the wisdom and knowledge from above that was planted
as a mere seed in her heart. It has finally produced beautiful rose
petals for lavishing upon her family. She has been forgiven so she
should let the sin go from her heart and begin to live and love.
If you put away the sin that is in your hand and
allow no evil to dwell in your tent, then you will lift up your face
without shame; you will stand firm without fear. (Job 11:14-15)
