Husbands, Love Your Wives


“Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.” ~Colossians 3:19

Paul wrote about Christian marriage in Ephesians chapter 5, as well. Verse 25 states, “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her”. Who is the church that Christ loved? Who did Jesus say that He laid His life down for? It is all of us! His people.

“and He died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for Him who for their sake died and was raised” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:15

“But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” ~Romans 5:8

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” ~1 Timothy 1:15a

Francois du Toit writes, “The husband loving his wife pictures the parallel of Christ loving the church completely, and his unreserved giving of himself to us. This is what marriage is all about; it celebrates love’s initiative, whether coming from the husband or the wife. This awakens a different level of commitment beyond any sense of duty or guilt.” ~Mirror Bible

That’s such a beautiful translation of Ephesians 5:25; it aligns with Colossians 3:19 and shows how important marriage is - a direct reflection of our relationship with Jesus Christ, Himself. Another ‘ouch’ verse! The next time you want to fight with your spouse, let this verse flood your heart and replace the ire with love and compassion.

Have a blessed day!
