From the beginning God wanted us to be one.
for this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.
You are one flesh, because you come together as ONE.
Christ needs to be FIRST! Husband/Wife 2nd, and so on. Christ is the center of the relationship through all, it all begins with a unity of the two in Christ.
Love is about unconditional love, that means, Your Wife/Husband does NOT submit to you.
Love is about beauty, that does not mean that Sex comes first. Love is more than that.
Love is about friendship, sharing deep discussions, and enjoying each other as a whole.
Love is about giving, it is NOT demanding, or about RIGHTS.
Love is about till death, it is NOT about throwing Divorce in the air, or threatening each other.
When a man has taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall bring happiness to his wife whom he has taken.
Happiness – That doesn’t mean to under mind her, or just to make sure she is comfortable. This means to MAKE her Happy! There is more to making a wife/husband happy than talking, watching movies, going out to eat, and sex.
Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.
1 Corinthians 7:4
The wife’s body does not belong to her alone, but also to her husband; the husband’s body does not belong to him alone, but also to his wife.
We belong together as ONE. We are to be used to bring us together, for pleasure, and love.
Being together as one does not mean to be bowing down to their every need. It is not about following wife/husband lead, it doesn’t mean to be completely following each others footsteps.
Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly.
If you truly love your wife, you would never want to cause her harm, or bully her.
Christ loved the church for a purpose: to sanctify her, to put her to her proper use, to allow her to fulfill her potential.
Every husband who has his own good at heart, will nourish and cherish his wife, for they are one. Their good rises and falls together will build them stronger. Love does no harm to the one who loves.
Respect Your Husband/Wife
~Respect – gives a positive feeling of esteem or deference for a person or other entity
Let the Husband be the HEAD of the family.
~ Submitting to Him, does not mean being quiet, or silent, and it doesn’t mean to just agree with whatever falls from his mouth.
~ Respectful in communicating
~ Tell your dreams, desires, and thoughts.
~ Learn about each other, help one another overcome, and show your inner-self.
Know the Lord is in Control
Giving Time to each other
~ You have to spend time together, to HELP each other.
Speak to Each Other (Communicate) – Seems to be a big thing, right?
Treat Each other Equally
Do not compare Each other to others
A Marriage is Unity, Love, Headship/Submission, and Perfection.
A Marriage grows over time. You have to learn from one another, and communicate to one another to BUILD your marriage.
