Roles of Husband and Wife In Marriage
How Should a Husband Love His Wife and A Wife Her Husband?
A Christian husband and wife
have their God-given roles in marriage according to God's design. To be able to
properly apply these roles we need to have our priorities in order. Most couples unbeknownst
to them, place God on the bottom of their priority list. They don't do
this purposely--it just happens when we neglect to study the word and
communicate with God. We cannot love our spouse in the proper ways when we put God on the bottom
of our priority list.
Think about this: If
God is number one in our life and if every thing we do rests on that
then there would be minimal problems between couples in marriage. God is
love and when we bring that love into our marriage through selfless giving
of ourselves we will be blessed in our marriage!
We must take all things to God
through Jesus Christ and place him as our authority in our lives in ALL things. He is
our head, from which everything flows. Having priorities in order gives us
a firm foundation to work off of for our marriage. After all, God, our
Creator is our Source for every thing.
As we all know too well most
Christian marriages are not set up with their priorities like this. And it
is because the churches do not teach proper scriptural headship/submission
anymore. If we put ourselves above God then how can we be good
spouses to the person we married? If we don’t worship Christ as
our personal Savior in spirit and in truth then how on earth can we
understand what truth is and our roles
in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it
must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in
me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and
I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
(John 15:2-5 NIV)
No branch can bear fruit by
itself—it must remain on the vine? Are you remaining on the vine and
placing God/Christ first in your marriage?
Couples do not have to be afraid to love (submit) each other
because once they actually begin loving one another in the ways of the
Lord they will see how good their marriages can really be! Click
