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.

爱你的妻子

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。

我们都需要在生活中感到安全。妻子们需要有一种安全感,在婚姻的各个方面都能感受到丈夫对她们的爱。这种安全感的基础就是爱。

圣经教导丈夫要像基督爱教会、为教会舍己一样爱妻子。神不仅在言语上爱我们,在行为上也爱我们,祂差遣耶稣在我们还作罪人的时候就为我们而死。丈夫能给妻子的最大安全感就是通过自己的言行让她们感受到爱。尽管不是所有的丈夫都是性格外向的人,但他们都能努力用行动来表达爱。正如基督为我们舍己,爱是一种行为,它通过给予来表现。

在许多丈夫努力工作,想要在职场建功立业之时,他们的妻子在照顾孩子和他们的需求,并确保家里井井有条。丈夫们应该意识到,如果她们对自己所做的和所放弃的一切没有感受到被爱和感激,那么她们的情感水库就可能会枯竭。

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。

大多数丈夫都有非常繁忙的日程,即便如此,让我们有意识地为我们的妻子腾出时间来,就像基督爱教会一样爱她们。
