August 5: Husband and Wife

Scripture Lesson: Ephesians 5:25

On this date in 2011 Darla Harlow, a big fan of the Mississippi Braves (AA), was given the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at Trust Mark Park in Pearl, MS. After tossing the ball to home plate, the military wife was totally surprised when the catcher took off his mask and she recognized her husband Michael, an Army major serving in Afghanistan who had been away from home for the past nine months. It was indeed a joyful reunion!

In today’s Scripture passage, Paul was writing to the Ephesians about the responsibilities a husband has concerning his wife. Husbands are to love their wives as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for her. If you are married, God expects that kind of selfless love to be given to your wife. What an honor it is to love your wife as Christ loves the church! For any marriage to reach its potential under God, that kind of love must be shown by a husband to his wife. Young men, as you someday look for a wife, remember to love her with that kind of love. Men, today make sure your wife knows just how special she is and how much you love her!

  1. How did Jesus show His love for the Church?

  2. Why should you love your wife with that kind of love?

  3. How can you show your spouse today just how much you love them?

When God has blessed you with a wonderful life partner, love and cherish that person each and every day!

Hope your doing well and thanks for taking the time to write these for God's glory!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of
your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could
space it out better?
