Msg #2007 A Hi-Fi Marriage

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

Biblical marriage was intended by the LORD God to give man a taste of paradise here on earth. Not following his imperatives however, can leave quite a different taste, as many will attest. Few born in this century know what a Hi-Fi was in the last, but it was tagged to a device that had a high-fidelity reproduction of recorded music, i.e. an output that was faithful to its input. If a marriage and home is to leave the right taste in the mouth it must be a Hi-Fi marriage with careful faithfulness to God's input. Crucial for this fidelity are husbands and wives “submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God” (Eph 5:21). Much has been said about wives submitting, so focus for a moment on the husbands role. Submission is surrendering your life to the needs of another, and thus “Husbands love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it” (Eph 5:25), is a crucial imperative. Christ gave himself for the church. Christ promised “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Heb13:5), and “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world” (Matt 28:20). Christ meets every need, physical, emotional, and spiritual. And Christ is TRUTH and leads his church into spiritual truth. Further he “hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Eph 1:3). Husbands should focus less on wives submitting and more on loving them as Christ loved the church. A husband has his plate plenty full just doing those four things for his wife.  Give your life for her, never forsake her, meet all her needs, and provide her spiritual leadership with all spiritual blessings.  Happy Valentines Day.
