0214-Loving Your Wives 爱你的妻子

Ephesians 5:25-29 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26.that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27.so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. 28. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29.For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church.All of us need to feel secure in life. Wives need to have a sense of security with regards to their husbands’ love for them in every aspect of the marriage. The very foundation of that security is love.

The Bible’s instruction for husbands is to love their wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her. God did not just love us with words but in action by sending Jesus to die for us while we were yet sinners. The greatest security that husbands can give their wives is for them to feel loved through their words and actions. Even though not all husbands are extroverts, all are able to make an effort to show love by action. As Christ gave Himself for us, love is an action and it is demonstrated by giving.

1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

While many husbands are working very hard to do well in the corporate world, their wives are ensuring that the home is in order when they look after their kids and their needs. Husbands ought to be aware that their emotional reservoirs might be running on empty if they don’t feel loved and appreciated for all that they have done and given up.

It is very important that husbands take time often to assure their wives by sowing into and topping up their emotional reservoirs by spending time with them, buying them flowers or a gift while on business trip, assuring them that they love them through the words “I love you”, giving them a call from the office etc.

Even though most husbands have very busy schedules, let us intentionally make time for our wives, and love them as Christ loved the church.

以弗所书5:25-29你们作丈夫的,要爱你们的妻子,正如基督爱教会,为教会舍己。要用水藉着道把教会洗净,成为圣洁,可以献给自己,做个荣耀的教会,毫无玷污,皱纹等类的病,乃是圣洁没有瑕疵的。28. 丈夫也当照样爱妻子,如同爱自己的身子。爱妻子便是爱自己了。29.从来没有人恨恶自己的身子,总要保养顾惜,正如基督待教会一样。




丈夫用花时间与妻子相处,在出差途中为她们购买鲜花或礼物, 跟她们说“我爱你”保证他们的爱,或者从办公室给她们打一个电话等这些方式经常向妻子播种和填满她们的情感水库是非常重要的。
